Summer Run Streak, Day #23 (Father's Day Eve)

Big day today.

My wife attempted to let me sleep a bit later, in light of my late night last night. She took the kids and headed out of the bedroom around 7, but it was to no avail as I still woke up around 7:26. Went out, cleaned up the kitchen and made breakfast (banana pancakes). Breakfast was pretty good, too, I really liked the way the recipe came out this time.

We decided to do some stuff out today because it is supposed to be fairly hot tomorrow. Went first to a local farm, and did some strawberry picking. The toddler absolutely loved it, as she's a fan of strawberries. We also bought some rhubarb while we were there, as the familial supply of it is dwindling. Came home, as it was still a bit early to go to the carousel. Headed out a bit later and went and rode the carousel. The toddler even rode one of the horses that moves! It scared her a bit, as I expected, but she still did so well. It was awesome.

Both of those things are things I remember doing as a kid with family members, and even in the exact same venues, so they carry quite a bit of nostalgia for me. It is a great thing to be able to share those experiences with my kids. I'm really lucky to get to do that.

We had to run by the supermarket after the carousel, and both kids promptly fell asleep in the car. Short naps, but when we got home I was actually able to get some cooking and cleaning done. We hung around for awhile, and owing to the short nap, we did bath time and bedtime early.

I headed out for my run a bit early, around 9. Got in a good 10k or so, and felt pretty strong. Listened to the entirety of Peter Gabriel's Ovo, which I absolutely love, and of course has some great nostalgia for me.

I'm hoping to do a longer run tomorrow (first in awhile) but it will have to be in the evening after sunset. Just going to be way too hot tomorrow.
