I was awoken by the Beast

So this fact and the fact that I am crammed into the middle of my bed by a 4 year old just made me wake up in a fury.
I was out of bed and in my running clothes at 6:40. I was going to run off the anger before someone got a spanking.
Well it worked. I started with a warm up walk of 5 min and ran 5 min, then 3 min walk, 3 min run and back to 5 min running. Then I continued to finish the 4 miles with a brisk walk.
I noticed a huge difference without the stroller. I barely ever get out without the double jogging stroller and at least 1 kid. Now if I have them both I just figured out it is 70lbs in butt and what ever the stroller weighs. I may try to get out early like this more often. I actually got to use my arms which are the part of me that hurts the most after all that running. Funny isn't it.
Also I am in a MUCH better mood. I am considering a nap though as I have done 10,000 steps and it is just past 10 am.

On a totally other topic- I am trying to run while holding my CD walkman. I need something better as I felt like I was running with a boombox on my shoulder like the 80's queen I am. I can't afford an ipod but I have to figure out something. Maybe Ebay can help.
