A.M. Wet snowy long run with Mike. Total of 20 miles. Kids joined us for a part. Benjamin did 3, Jenny did 2, Julia 1 (stomach flu), Jacob 0.5 and Joseph 1. We met a couple - a brother and and sister, their names were Sherri and Dan, and ran with them for a while. Most of the time we managed a bit sub 8:00 pace. Then we did some pickups starting around mile 14. First a mile in 5:31, then in 5:51, then 1.5 in 8:45 (5:50 pace). Benjamin did his 3 miles in 22:07 with the last quarter in 89.
It was one of those runs that I was happy to be done with and have in the books. But that is what builds character.
