After arriving home from work a few hours early today, I found the baby was taking a nap and the older kids were out with their grandparents. I had a quick decision to make. I could either make it out for a quick run or wait until later to go out a little longer.
My wife was not feeling so good, so I would be on a time crunch. Even if I was feeling great, it would not be right to extend my run more than 3 miles. My plan was to arrive home right before the older kids.
Even as I was out on my run, I thought about going a mile or two longer, but better judgement prevented me. I completed my run and arrived home about 5 minutes after the kids. My wife was glad to see me. Now she could go rest and I took care of the kids.
