So yesterday I went for a 3 mile run on my treadmill (well mostly run but a bit of walking too). I felt pretty good afterwards like I usually do when I go that distance. Then in the afternoon my parents came through town on their way home. They were only here for an hour but the kids begged to go on a bike ride. We did 4 miles which doesn't sound like much but I had my 40 pound toddler on the back of my mtn bike and in those four miles we managed a 328 ft elevation gain. I barely made it home. Naturally my house has to be at the top of a hill. I couldn't believe how much more difficult it was with my 3.5 yr old on my bike. He was especially encouraging saying, "Are you tired Mom? I am not tired. You are tired." Super helpful. It just made me that much more excited to say goodbye to the 40 extra pounds I carry daily.
