I've only run twice since I last posted, but Sunday I ran my long run and for the first time I ran it solo (No stroller!). I also ran further than I have in years and I really pushed myself. It felt so great! My quads are still sore today. :) I had planned on running today and Thursday, but this morning I just wasn't feeling it. I think I'll go for a quick run tonight and see how I feel tomorrow morning. It's super tough getting up and running at 6:30am when you haven't gotten enough sleep. But I don't want to lose momentum and I'm feeling great, so I just have to kick myself out of bed and do it! I always feel better after I've done it.

This Saturday I'll be running the Kentlands 5k, also sans stroller, and my goal is to finish in under 35 minutes. I've done this run once before, in 2007, and I remember there being a few big hills. I finished in 31:30 with a pace of 10:09. I'm curious to see how I do this year! I'm actually really looking forward to it!
