Barely walking

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.
