Spring has sprung....or maybe not

Friday was a beautiful day! I left work an hour early to run home and get the jogging stroller before picking up Evie from preschool. Once I had her we headed down to the Seattle waterfront. Sean's work is pretty much on the waterfront and he had planned to work late so I thought it would be a perfect time for Evie and I to play in the sun.  Seattle has this awesome art park and trail along the water that is great for entertaining the little one while getting in some exercises. We played and walked around for about 2.5 hours before walking to get some dinner. After eating we picked up take out for the hubs and headed back to pick him up.
Today was a rest day for me, we just finished dinner and I am mentally preparing myself for an 11 mile run tomorrow. Of course I checked the weather report and it is calling for 90% chance of rain! This might be a lonely wet run, as we won't take the little one out with us for a wet run. I could hop on the treadmill, but I am really trying to do my long runs outside.

  1. Awww, I love taking the girls out to fun parks like that!! Great active rest!

  2. Hope your 11 miler was dry and that it was a good one. Lately I've been lucky with the weather, not much rain during runs but rain is supposed to get here in the next days and it could be I have to do my long run in the rain too Saturday. But that won't hold me back. No way I'm running 12 miles on a treadmill :)
