back from running... we left at midnight, and got back just now. 20 minute runs are still pretty pathetic compared to what we did in cross country, but we keep running a lot further. i convinced eli to do a different and much further run today, but only hitting his favorite hill 1 time instead of 3 .... it took a lot of convincing but he agreed. he really only does the runs for the hill. i prefer to do one huge run instead of a bunch of little ones. kenji almost didn't go today, but we convinced him too -- heheh.
