Breaking out of the cold!

The cold is finally leaving us and it was so nice this evening (50 degrees!)  that I had to get out for a run. The dogs have been cooped up in the house for most of the last two days too, so I decided to take them with me on my run tonight. Cricket doesn't have the same stamina as Casey, so I did two laps from the house so that I could drop him off after the first lap. I did 3 minutes running followed by 1 minute of walking for this run since it was still on the cooler side and I knew the dogs would be ready to run as soon as we started.

Mile 1 - 10:43
Mile 2 - 13:55 <-- doggie pit stop
Mile 3 - 9:51 <-- about half of this was just with Casey, I dropped Cricket off after 2.4 miles
Mile 4 - 10:55
Mile 5 - 11:20
Last .1 - 9:40

It was a terribly inconsistent pace, but it was nice to run with the dogs for a change and it's something I want to do more of this year. Plus, as an added benefit, the dogs are now both passed out and probably will be for the rest of the night! Casey did indulge me for a quick picture at the end of our run, though she was not interested in looking at the camera.

Did the warmer weather convince you to head outside for a run?
