Time: 7 minutes
Hooray! 7 consecutive (minus Sunday) days of running! This is definitely the first time in my life I've done this.
I'm glad I didn't make running in the morning part of the goal. That's definitely not happening much. I love me my bed a little too much.
Tonight was another dark run. I found a good night route that follows the parking lot so it's well lit and close to people. I just need to make sure I keep my distance from the dumpsters (see day 3).
Today was a fun day. Lillian and I went to the mall play place and she loved it! For the first ten minutes or so she just watched all of the older kids running around and jumping from place to place. After she'd taken it all in, she began crawling through the many tunnels and begging for rides down the slide. She made three friends. A brother and sister who took an interest in her. There was also a cute little boy who couldn't have been more than a few months older than Lilly who followed her around saying "baby!" Lilly particularly liked this little boy. They would approach each other and mimic whatever sounds the other was making loudly yelling things like "ba-ba, da-da, etc." together.
After the mall Lilly got a short nap and then we picked up some friends of ours and dropped them at the airport. They are a really fun couple and I always love hanging out with them--even if it's just on the way to the airport! Lilly also enjoyed having another car seat next to hers and getting to play with her little friend in the car.
