5.07 miles in 53:08 @ 10:28 pace and 146/172 for 716 calories

Tonight we went on a family run after dinner—me behind the jogging stroller and Joanne in front of us.  Emma is quite a motivator, yelling things like “Run Daddy run!” and “Come on, catch up to Mommy!” when Joanne gets too far ahead.  Between pushing Emma’s 36 pounds uphill and trying to talk to her while running, these family runs are good training exercises.

In fact, I did a little comparison tonight.  The first part of the run was with the whole family and the second half was on my own after I dropped off Joanne and Emma.  I measured my lap time in two splits and my pace was 1:26 per mile slower with the stroller than without (11:14 vs. 9:48).  That’s quite a difference.
