Cold again, pretty good head wind out of the North Northwest for the second half today.  I tried to take it a little easy today.  Come on Summer.

Scared 2 Mallard ducks this morning running through a neighborhood.  In 10 years of running through this area that's the first time I've scared 2 ducks off.

New shoes today, they felt pretty good.  Brooks Defyance, so far I'd say a pretty good shoe.

Overall I felt pretty good today especially after 3 hours of mowing and edging the lawn yesterday.

No time today, my iPod sensor fell off my shoe somewhere around 2.5-2.7 miles.  Found it on the second half on the way back.  It had been run over at least 1 time but it's still working.

Another great morning for a run.  Unfortunately I got to see somehting that I don't usually see on my run this morning.  There was a big house fire in Washington Terrace about a mile into my run.  When I ran by the flames were shooting 7-10 feet above the roof, the house looked like a total loss.  The firemen were just running the hoses from the fire hydrant.  A little smokey for the last mile due to the fire.

Could it blow any harder last night, the wind and rain woke me up and I had a hard time keeping up. At least it all blew over and was decent for a good run outside this morning. 5 days to go!

Nice and warm this morning, pretty good breeze out of the North / Northwest.  Today started out as a nice easy run but with about 2 miles to go I decided to push it a little.  Just guessing but I probably averaged around 8:15 - 8:25 per mile for the last 2.  The second half was about .25 further that the first half.

What a great day for a race.  A little cold up in Eden waiting for the race to start but after that who could complain.  This race is so much better than the Salt Lake Half, much better course.  New PR for the Half I beat my previous best by 1:33.

I felt really good up until about 10 miles then I started to get a little tired, no problem finishing though.

Nice run this morning, pretty warm but I felt good after the short run and bike ride yesterday.  No soreness during my run this morning which is great, so it only took 1 recovery day before I started feeling normal after Saturdays half.

Rainy and windy again this morning so it's back to the treadmill.  This mornings treadmill theatre featured the 80's classic movie 'The Secret of My Sucess' with Michael J. Fox.  Classic 80's movie with a great Scooby Doo type ending.

Got to bed a little late last night, we went and seen the new Indiana Jones film.  Good show, definately an Indiana Jones film.  Lots of action, fights, and chases.  It's a fun show as long as you go with the attitude of just enjoying it for what it is and don't be too critical.  Good run this morning, back outside just a little overcast this morning felt good after running the last 2 mornings on the treadmill.

Great morning, temp was perfect and not a cloud in the sky.  Perfect for a good morning run.  Right leg was a little sore this morning but not enough to keep me from running.
