Getting ready to head out.
Watching the geese on our way.
Last night before we went to bed I looked at the forecast and Iris and I made a plan to get up and do 9 miles together, her on her bike, me running. When I got up this morning it was raining! I was sure it would wreck our plans, since Iris can gets pretty grumpy when she is tired/wet/cold. I told her she didn't have to go, and she was upset, but she ended up saying she wanted to go anyways, so we bundled up and headed out.
Luckily, the rain was barely a drizzle when we left the house and it stopped shortly in to our trip. We stripped off our gloves and a layer of clothes 2 miles in.

after her longest bike ride ever!
Happy to have brunch on the way!
Iris said biking with me wasn't the most fun she's ever had, but I am hoping she wants to do it again with me some time soon. I think she at least had enough fun to try again! It was a long bike ride for her, so we definitely need to do more practicing.
