  6. Dad and I did our 4.18 "Jamie's Birthday Hike" in 1 hour and 15 min...I could have gone much faster but Dad really wanted to be included and since he really can't run we opted for the hike!!
    Hope the rest of your BD is just wonderful!!!

  14. Oh, sorry... I did a 4 mile walk in 1 hour and 17 minutes.

  15. Final time was 31:39 Over all a pretty good run. Being that it decided to become winter today I probably shouldn't have decided to run on back roads surrounded by fields, more wind than i needed. Also the ice made it a bit slippery. But hindsight is 20/20 and even with the conditions I was able to keep a pretty good pace for my full 5 miles. :-) Hope you had a great birthday Jamie!
