Finally got out at around 10 this morning. Felt a little hard today and I overdressed a bit.

Cold morning for a longer run for me.  Got stopped 2 times by trains, 2 times by lights, and 1 time by a St. Bernard.  Never felt like I got completely warmed up but I felt good today.

A little tired but I got out the door this morning which if I think about it was the real victory.  The run was the cherry on top.  Slogging around Roy/Clinton today.  At least the air quality has stayed on the yellow side instead of the orange this week.

Nice run with a big crew today on the parkway from 21st St pond.

Foggy, icy, and cold this morning.  Figured it was better this morning than it's supposed to be for the next 2 mornings so I went for it.  Didn't fall so that makes it a good run.  The fog started to clear about 5.5 miles in.

Nice run on a really great morning.  Felt good out with nice clean air and not too cold.  Can't complain about that in January.

Slow, clunky slog this moring.  Too bad I didn't feel a little better because it was a great morning to be out.  I think that saved it for me, can't complain about a morning like we had today in January.

Tired and tired legs today plus it was pretty windy not a good combo.  That being said I had a decent run today.  Sometimes it pays off not to listen to the lazy part of your brain.

Felt a little colder this morning but still a nice morning and a good run.  It's been great having clean air in January.

I ran today which means I wasn't lazy and got out of bed this morning so that's a good thing right?

Not as cold this morning...24 vs. 20.  But it made a difference.  Modified my 5 mile route a bit I think it will work out.  No running down 1800 N in Clinton means a good thing.

Felt tired today but I ended up running this same route about 2:30 faster than last week.  Hopefully that means I'm getting back into some sort of shape.

Windy and warm this morning.  The last 2 mile slight uphill with a 20 mph headwind kinda sucked.  Otherwise a good run today.

Great run this morning with Tim, Cody, Brandon, Becky, Heather, Emily, and Nanette on the parkway. I had a really good fast run. Pretty much a tempo for me right now. Good to know i can run kinda fast still.

Nice run on a really great morning.  We've been spoiled this month with the weather.  Legs got a little tired at 7 miles turning from 4800 onto 3100 but I held strong, weathered the tiredness and got through it... ;)

Another perfect morning, very nice today.  Good run supposed to be a nice easy recovery but I ended up pushing the last couple of miles.  I also overdressed a bit, never thought I'd say that in January.

Bummer the clouds covered up the lunar eclipse this morning but if there's a silver lining it was warm this morning at 39.  I wore shorts today because I overdressed a bit yesterday.  Nice run just cruisin around the hood.
