A Dream come True!

When I was 9 months pregnant I had a wonderful dream that I was jogging with my daughter in a jogging stroller and my husband beside me with our dog. It was really wonderful and we were all smileing. Then I woke up and realized I was still 8 days overdue with my daughter and almost cried! Today that dream came true.

My husband worked from home so I made and brought him his lunch and then he used his lunch hour to run with me on my 5.2km route! He took the dog, I took the stroller and every 10 minutes we switched! The first time I ran the route it took 53:31 and the next time it was 49ish and this time it was 46:21 so we had a huge improvement but it was wonderful to run with him and our daughter even if it was horribly muddy. On the weekend we'll do it again and aim for the 6.4km route! The only sad thing was that I had to wear a horrible neon orange vest that my mom bought me and insisted I wear. I just don't like the velcro on it because my stop watch, sweat rag and mittens kept sticking to it.

I'm tired but my baby is down for a nap and I ran with my husband! I couldn't be happier and now I get to enjoy my cup of tea before I have to go start dinner. Life is good.
