Hard time getting out of bed this morning for a tired run.  Tired was the rule of the day but it was a good run and I'm glad I got out.  Finally dry roads to run on, it's sooo nice and then to have clean air on top of that with 37 degrees...WOW!

Half marathon Monday.  Good run today, I felt good and hit a nice overall time.  Looks like the inversion is back.....supposed to clear out Thursday though, here's hoping.

A tale of 2 runs today.  First half the wind was blowing from the SE and it actually blew the fog and smog away.  Running up Washington Terrace and South Ogden the air looked good and I could see the mountains.  Got to my half way point and the wind switched to the NW which blew the inversion, smog, and fog back.  Really weird today.

A little cooler this morning and foggy.  It was really hard to get out the door but I made it.  Running up to the top of Washington Terrace and into South Ogden the fog cleared up and the air looked ever so slightly cleaner so a small bonus. 

Right calf tight today so I took it easy and I'll have to keep being careful.

Starting another wear test today.  Great shoes, especially for a first run.  What a run this morning, the air cleared out and the temps went from 21 when I got up to 35 by the time I got to 7 miles.  Ahhhhhhh.....

Cold this morning but I think inversion cold feels colder so not too bad.  It's always a good run this time of year when the air is clean.  No problems today just cruisin along.

Seems like January is back...cold again this morning.  I saw a stat on the news that 35 of 43 days this year have been below average temperature wise.  Anyway good run today, got out a little early to get to work a little early to fix an issue.

Nice morning out, I kinda over dressed a little which was ok.  Nice being a little warm for a change.  Good run, tired again.

Nice Presidents' Day run on a cooler morning. Just cruisin today, I really like these Cortana 3s too bad they're a little expensive.

Nice morning for a run which made today's run bearable because I was really dragging today.  Decided to do my 2 10 mile runs today and tomorrow due to weather issues later in the week.  So if I have to run on the TM it's only 8.5.

Great morning again made it better to drag my tired butt through the run.  My legs were pretty cooked about 7 miles in but I bucked up and got it done.

Tired run again today in a light snow.  The snow wasn't too bad and it's kinda nice sometimes to be making the only footprints.  I need to kick out of this tired cycle.

Looked outside this morning and there was 2-3 inches of snow and it was snowing pretty good.  Didn't want to do that so I talked myself into running on the TM...blah blah blah.

Good run this morning on a freakin fridgid morning.  Temp was 12, what's up with that?  Anyway I was tired and my hip kinda hurt today, leftover from shoveling over 1 foot of snow on Saturday.  So even with the cold, being tired, and my hip I had a nice run.  Winter needs to go away, we've had enough.

Ok run in the snow this morning.  Actually the run was good the snow was BLAH!!!!  My legs were tired today so I just kept it easy.  I kinda tweaked my hip a little shoveling snow on Saturday so another good reason not to push anything.  It's just an occasional ping nothing too serious.

Ok, now that January part 2 is almost over hopefully we'll get some more spring like weather.  17 this morning and breezy so I'm sure the wind chill was in the lower teens.  I felt cold today, aside from that the run was good.  I felt good today just cruisin.

Decided to listen to my body and my brain for a change and took the day off running today.
