Happily married with one kid! I didn't pick up running seriously until junior year at BYU. Now I live in Idaho, where I leave for work at 5am and don't get home until 5:40pm. I still usually manage a good jog on most week days after work, but the weekends are where I try to do enough to see improvement.

5 miles on treadmill at work. Did some strides at 5:56/mi, and a whole minute at that pace close the end. It was hard, but I was pleased with how natural it felt.
