10 miles on a cool but really nice morning.  I even seen a few of other runners out this morning.

So aside from running Monday without eating I did something else that wasn't super smart.  With about 3.5 miles left I saw a pack of cigarettes in the road at the last second and wanted to smash it to ruin them so kids wouldn't get them.  So without stopping I had to kinda step to the side and twist my hips to step on it.  Well...I could hardly walk for the rest of Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday felt a little better.  Yesterday was probably runnable but I decided not to push it plus I've still got some bad mojo in my head.  So lesson learned, don't go out of my way to step on things, even if they're bad.

Started out a little rainy this morning but turned out to be really nice down on the Ogden River parkway for a good run with Brandon and Dave.

Whoo hoo, it's getting light enough in the morning that I feel like I can run down through South Weber.  So that was good for a change today after running the same thing all winter.

Warm and windy this morning didn't mix too well with tired legs, body, and mind.  I'm sooooo tired, glad I got out though.

Cooler again this morning not too bad.  Good run, felt a little better again today.  I think I'm ready for some warmer weather though.

Good run this morning, no watch as usual but I really just let my body run.  I have no idea about pace or anything but it was enjoyable.

Tired run but otherwise I felt ok.  The last year or so I've liked running but today at 10 miles or so I got a really good feeling and remembered what it was like to really enjoy running again.  I'm glad it's been a while.

Brrr, cold today but as soon as the sun came up it felt good but that didn't happen until about 5 miles.  At least this time of year it doesn't stay cold once the sun comes up.  I felt slow and clunky today.  I'm guessing that was because of the cold.

Almost didn't run today because I woke up with a head ache.  I forced myself out the door and I'm really glad I did.  Head ache went away and I had a great run this morning.  This is just a great time of year to run, everything is getting green, the weather is nice, when the sun comes up you can feel the warmth, the birds are out singing.
