Today, it took me 4 miles before I felt warmed up. And then I stopped briefly at mile 4.5 to check on the boy, who was banging away on something in the other room (a drum, as it turns out. So at least it was appropriate hitting.) The break messed up my groove. And after that, I felt like I was stomping along as I ran like an ogre. It wasn't pretty. But I finished nonetheless.
