JOE - 3.6 miles in 23:49 for a 6:37 avg pace
then the next morning I ran
ME - 2.5 miles in 24:22 for a 9:36 avg pace.
Clearly - he would need to run slower! 'cause I can't run that fast!
It was a sunny but chilly day in Madison. Temp was 23 with strong 14 mph winds out of the north. This makes the wind chill somewhere in the 10 degree range . . . brrrrrrr. One of these days - Spring will come!
We headed out - I wasn't sure just how far we should go with Sophie - she has only run 6 miles before. But she did GREAT. She just kept running - only having to stop a few times for sniffing breaks - which occurred during mile 5.
Right around mile 7 we returned to our neighborhood. Since I wanted to get closer to 10 - I was going to do our neighborhood 2 mile loop, while Sophie and Joe were going to turn off and head directly to our house. Well, Sophie would have none of that - while I kept going, Joe and Sophie turned left onto our street and I guess she came to a stop - she wasn't budging. So all of a sudden I hear them behind me - Joe turned around and he and Sophie caught up to me and we finished the loop together for exactly 9 miles.
Here are our splits:
1 - 8:59
2 - 9:12
3 - 9:45
4 - 9:25
5 - 10:09 - we stopped several times for Sophie to sniff
6 - 9:49
7 - 9:29
8 - 9:37
9 - 9:05
for an avg pace of 9:30.
Great day! Great run! Great time with family!
