Great run this morning although it was only 29 degrees.  Wimped out and wore long pants and shirts because I felt cold when I got out of bed.  I knocked 12 minutes off my last Ogden half time and my route is a tougher route(more uphill) than Odgen so I'm happy with the effort this morning.

Nicer morning today although it was quite windy.  Felt like it was coming out of Weber Canyon.  Good run this morning just cruizin along.  Must be spring time....I've seen more runners out this week than I seen for all of Winter.

Sunrise this morning was pretty awsome...started pink went to orange and then yellow, very nice to match my run this morning.  Good cruiser today hit the last mile really hard.  Felt like I'm starting to get a shin splint during yesterday's run so I wore my calf sleeve and it felt really good today.

Since the weather is supposed to be cold and soso tomorrow I decided to switch days.  Plan was for 10 miles easy.  I promised myself an easy effort today since I've been running hard all week.  Succeeded in running easy and I felt really good so I tacked on a couple of miles.

A sure sign of spring....I've seen more runners this week than I seen all winter.

PM - 5.25 mile easy run up 2700 N in Farr West while my daughter had soccer practice.

Awesome morning and a great run.  Had to push it a little because I realized I had to be to work.  Felt good and was only a couple of minutes late.....

Nice run, aside from the detour home for a pit stop, that added .5.  Perfect morning, now I've got to psych myself up for a possible TM run tomorrow.

Worm dodging this morning, good run and a pretty nice morning besides the overcast skies and rain for the last 2.5.  Decided to do a good tempo when it started raining, felt good.

Great run this morning and I was happy with my effort.  Ran fairly hard from the start and kept it going for the entire run.  Ended up finishing in 1:24 and that included a couple of stops at traffic lights and a drink break.

Went out for an easy 2 with my wife and then added another 3 to try out my new shoes.  Very nice, I like them already.

Good run today, just cruising along.  Started out chilly at 38 then the sun came up and it quickly warmed up and I was slightly overdressed.

Raining pretty good outside this morning, so after 15-20 minutes of talking myself into it I hit the TM.  Set it at 7 and tried to put my blinders on, got lucky and the latest Pirates movie was on so that kept me a little distracted.

Good run today but I was tired, didn't sleep real well last night.  Today was a bookend run of sorts.  It was a light sprinkle for the first 2 miles and a light rain for the last 2 miles.

Rainy, worm dodging run today.  Rain let up after about 3 miles so not too bad.  Felt good today even though I'm fairly tired, I think I'm mentally tired and physically ok this week.

Great run this morning, went out and just ran at a relaxed medium pace today.  Pretty uneventful otherwise, just like I like it.

Plan was for 12 this morning but it was so nice out that I added 2.  Now my legs are a little tired but a good run.

Good run on a great morning.  Legs felt heavy and tired from the sweat fest yesterday.  Great running song, Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes, played today on the old iPod.

Great run on a perfect morning.  Temps where just right and there was a coolish breeze.  Felt great today and hit a good pace for the entire run.

I drug my butt through the run today on tired legs.  Glad I got out though, kinda uneventful otherwise.  Ended up doing a little bit of a tempo for the last half, didn't consciously think about it just ended up that way.  The whole tired legs theory kinda goes out the window knowing that but they're tired.

Great run this morning, felt as good as I've felt all week.  I don't want to admit it but the colder morning probably had a lot to do with that.

I think I've found the worst part of running for me....garbage day on a warm morning with garbage trucks.  I almost threw up yesterday morning.

2 easy with my wife about 6:30 before The Killing started.  What a great evening for a run and even better with her.
