The first 2.2 miles felt great.  The I turned the corner and started running into the wind; not so great.   All in all, I felt pretty good and relaxed.  It was nice to add an extra 2 and a half miles on than what I normally run lately.

One mile warm up with my daughter Mary.  She wants to do the two-mile race for London's Run at the end of the month.  I set the Garmin to alert me at half mile intervals, but I must've hit the wrong button when we began because it didn't start.  So I ran to where I believed was a half mile away and then started the Garmin.  We ran for a quarter mile and she got a side ache and had to start walking.  We walked for a bit and then she started going again.  As soon as Garmin alerted me that we had gone half a mile, she stopped.  But we were only about 100 feet from our house.  The last half mile including the walking took us exactly 6 minutes.  Then I went and ran a mile alone next to the Queen Creek Wash, turned around and came back.  When I got home my 5 year old was waiting to go running.  I told her we could go to the end of the street and come back.  That ended up being two tenths of a mile; perfect for her.  Below are the stats for my two mile run:

Time: 17:21 (avg. pace 8:41)

Splits: 8:35, 8:47
