Run w/ Jackson (Shafran & back) 1:02:34  7.0 km (8:56 / km)
shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI
late afternoon, 35F, raining (not just drizzle, but depressing dark gray rain)
Its days like these that having a training partner really helps get one out the door. So when I got home from work and it was obvious the boys had been housebound just a little too long for sanity - out the door Jackson & I went. Actually quite an enjoyable run and rather brisk pace (for an 8 year old) on the return. Water company to Shafran over to the parking lot on Eaton and then back with a couple extra mileage loops on the way back. Probably the last mile or so back to Brown's bridge Jackson was running at a pace that was average conversational for me, so for him it was really trucking along - bashing through wet laurel, through the streams and quite impressive until a face plant back on the old trolley line slowed him down - but only a couple hundred meters back to the road where we jogged home at a leisurely pace...
