Record Time

George and I went for our nightly walk last night. Amy didn't go because she wasn't feeling very good. So George and I took the girls. George is a speed demon. Here he is pushing the girls in the bike trailer, which is a total of about 90 pounds (bike trailer 15 + 75 pounds for the girls) and I can barely keep up with him. Of course he says "It rolls so it isn't a big deal". But if I were to push it, especially when we go uphill, I would never make it.

Monday night Amy wasn't able to go either. On the walk I felt like I was practically jogging to keep up with George. After about two miles I said "I miss Amy, I really need her on these walks". Usually George is busting a move about 100 feet ahead of us with the girls and Amy and I just give up trying to keep up with him. So we talk and walk and we are usually gone on our 4 mile walks anywhere from 60-75 minutes. Well, I kept right up with George Monday night and boy could I feel it. But I didn't have anyone else to talk to, so if I wanted to talk his ear off I had to keep up. Last night we made record time. We finished our walk in 53 minutes! I was stoked! I think it helped that 1/2 way through I had to pee so bad I thought I was going to die. I just wanted to get home so I could use the bathroom :). I was even tempted as we passed some houses of people in our ward to ask if I could use their bathroom. That is how bad I had to go, but I chickened out. Anyway, a few times I was even walking ahead of George. Hard to believe, but it is true. So I am really excited to go again tonight to see if we can keep up with that record time of 53 minutes.

Wish I could be there to go walking with you guys. It's too cold and icy here to walk outside but I did 1.25 miles on the treadmill today.
