Had a hard time waking up again this morning.  Managed to get out of bed and run though.  Great run this morning.  I felt good and ran a little long for me today.  Temps were pretty good at 45, I kinda think that's a pretty good temp to run at.

Had a couple of older guys out walking this morning kinda cheer me on, I like when they do that kinda makes me feel good.

Lazy this morning.  The wind was blowing pretty hard from the North, pretty cold and I just couldn't get the motivation to go run in it.  Slept in a little then hit the TM for 4 miles.  I think I'll try to run a couple more after work.

Talked myself into another 3.1 on the TM when I got home while cooking dinner.  Just watched the news and ground it out.

After work party on the TM watching A River Runs Through It.  Great show especially for us Fly Fishermen.

I was a little lazy last week, had to go to SLC for an Oracle conference so that's my excuse good or not.

Kind of had a weird feeling this morning as I was getting ready.  For some reason I couldn't imagine myself running 6 miles today.  Completely weird, it was like there was no way I could run and finish. 

Had to wait and leave a little late waiting for the rain to slow up.  Great run today, I felt good.  Which is odd considering my thoughts getting ready.

Good day today, the rain held off and the temps were good at 45 and there was no wind.  Great run again today, I felt really good again hopefully it keeps up.  Was only going to go 5 today but I got out a little early and just decided to push it a couple of miles.

I think now that the trees are green and there's no more snow, although we're having a cold wet spring, I'm out of the winter funk and that's helping my runs.

No excuses for yesterday just lazy and didn't want to run.

Very nice outside this morning, blue sky and a slight breeze.  Great run again, I felt pretty good again even though I didn't sleep very well last night.  A few more people out running and walking this morning.

Legs were tired this morning so I just took it nice and easy.  Great run though, aside from tired legs I felt good again.  I think a lot of it has to do with the time of year, this is just a great time of year to run and this morning was no exception.

Great morning for a run although a little warmer that I'm used to at between 55-60.  Although I'm not complaining.  Felt good today, hopefully the 8.5 mile runs start feeling a little easier.  Ran into an old neighbor of my parents growing up and stopped for a minute to catch up.  It was good to see him.

Nice morning, perfect temps arount 50.  Good run, I felt pretty good again today.  Not much more than that today just a good run kinda blah but I'm not complaining.

Another good Foo Fighters song on the Ipod random play today.  'All my life' was the track, great song to run to and I had to listen to it twice.

Weather report said there was some rain on the way so I got out and tried to beat it.  I hit some very light sprinkles but nothing too serious.  Otherwise it was a great morning for a good run.  Tried to run a little longer run, for me anyway, again today to see how I felt.  So far so good, it's nice to get out for a little longer run and feel good.

Cloudy and a bit rainy for the second half this morning but not bad.  Had to get up early so I could get my daughter to school.  Initally ran 6.25 and my daughter wasn't quite ready to go and I relized that I was .25 short of 30 miles for the week so I ran another .5 mile.

Good week running, I have a little chafe problem but not too bad.  I feel pretty good right now and I've got no little nagging injuries, knock on wood, for the first time in a couple of years.

Very rainy yesterday morning so no run.

Great morning today, temps low 40's, blue sky, and no wind.  Felt good today, had an older guy cheering me on about 3.5 miles in.  I've seen him a couple of other times out walking and he always cheers me on.

Warm, overcast, and a little windy this morning.  Good run this morning, a little tired but I felt ok.  I'm trying to increase my mileage a little bit and so far so good.  Great song again this morning, Feeling of Jazz by Wynton Marsalis.  If you like some jazz it's great to run to.

Great run this morning, got up a little early and hit it.  Felt good today after not feeling very well yesterday.  Great weather, sunny temps around 50-55.  I need to get acclimated to the warmer temps since we've been cold this spring.

Heading up to Island Park this afternoon for a long weekend, can't wait.

Got to squeeze a run in up in Island Park.  Really rainy, snowy, and windy all weekend.  Still had a good weekend doing nothing though.  Great run, they always are up there.  Wind started blowing again pretty hard for the second half so kind of wiped my out being 2000+ ft higher in altitude than I'm used to.

Its just really nice to run up there in the pine trees.
