Running with the girls

Mommy is out of town at a weekend retreat tonight and tomorrow night and the girls had a late nap, so... we all went for a run together!  I thought the girls could just ride in the bike trailer / stroller, we'd run down to see the Clydesdales, and then run back while listening to some Disney read-along stories.  Well, the first 3/4 mile went that way, but then Ada REALLY wanted to get out and run, too. 

She did great!!!  She probably ended up running more than 1 full mile (on and off) of the 4.8 it takes to run down to the horses and back.  Ellie got out ran a little bit along the way, too.  They both got some great praise from a pair of mommies running past, and got to put some dogs, and throw rocks over the bridge into the creek.  It was great!


But not very fast:
Time:    0:86:40
Distance:    4.85
Average Speed:    3.36
Average Pace:    17:52

Wow - that's awesome! Speed is not the goal when you are running with the girls!
