he's such a loner

Mason spent time in the childcare room at the YMCA TWICE this past week.

I left him alone for the longest time yet ... a total of 33 minutes.  I spent 31 of those minutes running on the treadmill and the other 2 were spent walking to and from the room.  When I went to pick him up I found him alone in a walker staring at the television because Elmo was on the screen.  On the other side of the room were about 5 or 6 kids doing arts and crafts.  Sigh.  My child the loner.  
I was happy about my run ... I managed to get negative splits which always makes me happy.

Mile 1 - 8:10 minutes
Mile 2 - 15:50 minutes (7:40 minute pace)
Mile 3 - 23:10 minutes (7:20 minute pace)
Mile 4 - 30:28 minutes (7:18 minute pace)

It's funny how much faster I've been running since leaving Mason alone in the childcare room.  It's like I'm in a huge hurry to get back to him in case he has a breakdown.
Once we got home Mason had some words of wisdom for me ... Run Fast.  Will do son, will do.
