Abby and I met Jake and Andrea this morning up at Jeremy Ranch. Andrea was kind enough to volunteer to watch any combination of my kids/dogs this morning while Jake and I ran. Andy was having some stomach issues this morning (he wouldn't eat bacon for breakfast so I know he wasn't faking!) so just Abby came with me and she spent a couple hours hiking and wading through and falling in the river with Andrea.

I did a quick .5 mile warm-up then Jake and I did the 14.5 mile Jeremy Ranch Road in 1:48:33. Tailwind out, headwind back. Saw Luke Puskedra and some other Nike guys out on the road this morning.

Good soak in the river after has my legs feeling rejuvenated already. Need to remember that. Although most of my runs don't have a convenient mountain stream to soak in at the finish. 

Just a really nice morning.

Sounds like a fun run! Hope Andy starts feeling better soon.

Enjoyed that run. Always a treat to run up there.

A little bit jealous!

Nice! I wouldn't run with Jake unless he was pushing my kids in a stroller. :-)

You have to be a sub 2:10 guy (minimum) to have the fitness to push a stroller on that road!
