Awesome afternoon on the Parkway at lunch.  Really nice day for a run.  Took yesterday off to rest my hamstring, started feeling a little twinge on Wednesday.  No problems today so it was the right decision but it's always a tougher decision at the time.  I always feel a little lazy and not sure whether I need a day off or not.

Nice run on the Parkway today.  I went north from Pig Farm today instead of south.  Only 1 flooded underpass and 1 dead racoon so not too bad today.

Woke up tired and my legs felt a little sore.  Needed to run this morning instead of at lunch due to a long meeting today.  Ended up having a good run, legs felt good.  Bonus.

Pretty good run for about 3 miles, light rain and some wind but not too bad.  Starting from there it really started raining pretty good.  It was cold rain, felt like running in the Ogden marathon.  I ended up soaked and cold.

Really nice lunch run on the Parkway, the sun felt great.  Lunch run today because I couldn't blast my butt out of bed this morning.  Stupid time change.

Felt much better today on the parkway south from Pig farm.  Nice day a little breezy but it felt good for the 2nd half.

First run since Tuesday. I rolled my ankle on Monday but it didnít really bother me. Then in the last 2 miles on Tuesday it started feeling stiff. No go because of a sore ankle area on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Good choice to rest it.

Nice morning on the parkway with Brandon, Brett, Steve, and Jeff.

Nice afternoon run on the parkway south from pig farm.  Felt a little full, it was waffle day at work this morning.  IT band is a little better today than Saturday but it's still reminding me to be careful.

Donated blood yesterday so today was low energy.  Couldn't really push anything so I went easy today.  Aside from that what a great morning to be out, well worth it.
