I have promised myself all day that I was going to do a nice little three mile run at some point. That point has been pushed back a bunch of times today and now it's 7 pm. I could still go. I probably should. I knocked off 7.3 miles early yesterday morning, making a point of keeping my speed a little on the quicker side. Today my legs hurt from my upper thighs down to my toes. Even my feet and ankles hurt.

4. I babysat a little boy today who cried the whole forty minutes he was here. It was super fun. I'm sure it had nothing to do with me locking him in the hope chest and trying to have a nap.
