Great weekend of running

Man I had a nice weekend of running !! I was really hoping this would happen. I ran on Saturday after work from work. It was a nice day at the shop and after a whole day of raining it felt pretty good outside when it was time to run. I was also excited because I was going to be running in my new pair of Newton running shoes. We just got these into the store in the last month. We are one of like 40 stores in the whole country to get them to sell. For those who have not heard of Newton, they are the shoe company with extra forefoot padding to help get you up running more midfoot. You should check them out. Now back to the run..... It was a little different at first but I felt myself getting used to it about half way thru the run. I think these will be fun to run in over time. I ended up running like 6 miles in like 42 min's. After my run I headed home for a great night of fun with the family, and a little night time of watching SNL with Sonya.

Sundays run was even better than I could have hoped. My Mom was helping us out with the kids so Sonya was able to join Paul and I for a super nice trail run at Hyland Park. Paul and I were looking to move up to like 2 1/2 hours and I knew Sonya would be up for that. We made our way around the park and I felt pretty good. Other than a 10 min stretch I was happy with the run. I even added on like 15 more min's with Sonya as she was looking for 3 hours. Man is she tuff. I think I am going to try and hit the trails before work tomorrow for a easy 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Should be fun !!!
