I used to run competitively, and maybe I will do so again someday.  Right now I am primarily running to try and get in better shape, and to maintain both physical and emotional health, but also for the simple joy that comes when I run.

I am also the proud daddy of five little ones.  I love the opportunity that I have to be a daddy, and my challenge is to balance my family responsibilities with work and running.

56:40 for approximately 7 miles.

I got out earlier this morning than I did yesterday and I didn't have to make a pit stop, so I was able to run 7 miles.  My average pace was on the slower side as I was running up in the hills.

Approximately 5 miles in 36 minutes.

I planned on running 7 miles, but I got out of the house later than planned, and then had to make an emergency pit stop at a gas station.  This problem was confounded when the gas station bathroom was occupied and I had to wait for a while to use it.  As a result of all of this, I had to shorten my run to 5 miles this morning.
