Running and it feels so good...

So I totally got up at 4:50 in the morning to run!
Oh yes, I did.

I haven't ran in over a week in an attempt to rid myself of the sickness.
It was time. 

I was able to run 3.4 miles with the girls before I had to make a pit stop at home.
I found them 'after' and did another mile.
Then I felt so good that I did another 3 miles!

7.2 miles done!

It just felt right.
 I did have to suck on cough drops the whole time, but still worth it.

I'm thinking this means that I can get back on track with the training.

Of course, last time I ran it was 60 degrees outside at 5:10am.

This morning it was not even 40 degrees.
No gradual temperature changes here in Utah.
So much fun.

Now for a random picture from my phone!
My kids have progressed in their photography skills.
They are now using the photo effects:

I have high hopes for them.

Wow! That's early! Great run! Since I'm fighting a cold myself it's good to hear that it will eventually end!

You are so good to get up early and get it done! I so wish I could drag myself off the mattress to do that! I hear you on the weather change. But I am glad it seems to be returning to normal.
