Day off work today so I decided to get a little longer run in today.  Good run, had to come back home at 4.5 miles for a pit stop and then back out for 10.5.

Back to work and back to my normal Tuesday run.  Good run felt colder today because it was a little breezy.  Must have been swirling because I had a headwind for the entire run.

Good run today although it felt like I was running in slow motion today, just slogging along.  Ended up with a good time so no complaints.

Good run and the no snow weird weather continues, looks like at least another week.  I so don't want December/January snow/rain/cold in March and April.  Tempo for the last 4 miles this morning felt good.

Cold this morning but I'm not complaining.  Forecast was for 10-11 actual temp was 21, I'll take 21.  Good run felt good today.  Full moon was cool this morning turning yellow as it set into the clouds out west.

Normal pace run today, just happy to be out in the cold.....not really.  Cmon spring.  Wind from the NW today so 2nd half was cold into the wind.  At least the air is clear today.

Cold, cold run today at 11 degrees.  Wore 6 shirts today, 2 pair of gloves, tights, pants, and 2 hats.  Felt like the little kid from Christmas Story in his snow suit.  Don't like to be cold.

Great, cold run this morning.  School is out so it was a nice quiet, peaceful run.  It's amazing how much more traffic there is when school is in.  Felt good today just cruisin along.

Got up and it was a little windy so I got dressed ready to go.  Walk out the door and it's blowing hard and snowing now.  NEAT!  Felt like I was in a snow globe that just got shaken up.  Good run beside me being insane.  Snow and wind pretty much stopped with 1 - .5 to go.  Thank you snow storm....

Great run today, good effort and good pace for the entire run.  The fact that it was 20 degrees warmer today than yesterday didn't hurt.  Just felt really good today for a hard effort run.

Raining with about an inch of slush on the side of the road this morning, no way I'm going to run in rain and slush.  Hit the Hamster wheel this morning while watching Lincoln Lawyer.  Good show helped keep me distracted for the run.

I'm glad the weather reports were wrong and the snow is holding off until this afternoon.  Took advantage of a warmer morning at 31 and ran a half this morning.  Felt good, nice start to the week except for the part were I almost got hit by a school bus that didn't want to wait for me.

Snowy, icy, slushy slowish run today.  I think there was only about 1.25 miles of plowed road today.  Lots of people out slow blowing this morning looking at me like I'm nuts.  I don't really have a good defense to deny it but it's a good kinda nuts.

Good run the roads were clear, but my legs are a little tired.  They've been a little tired since Monday.  It actually felt slightly warm at 33, I did overdress a little but it was nice.

Decided to go 10 today to get 50 for the week.  Good run although it felt cold and it was, the Hospital sign said 23 with a breeze from the NW.  Nice to have another good run out in the blue dome to cap off the week.

When I left the temp was 26, by the time I got up by the Hospital sign it was 33.  Nice to have a little warmup around 6:30 am.  Good run except for the last 4 miles.  My left calf started feeling cramped and wouldn't let up.  Feels ok now but I'll have to watch it.

Good uneventful run today.  Uneventful included no calf issues which was great, I was a little worried after yesterday.
