Nice cruiser this morning after the rain.  I saw 3 other runners this morning which is odd for me, one lady had a jogging stroller and a dog I'm not sure how well that worked out.  At least she was out running.

Great run on a perfect morning.  Saw 4 other runners, must be Spring now if I'm seeing other runners.  I actually passed the only one that was headed the same direction.

3rd day in a row now that the same woodpecker has been on the same light pole pecking away when I run by, we must be on the same schedule.  Got to my turn around point and I seen another runner coming my way about .1 away.  I decided not to get passed, I'm not sure how fast he was going, so I hit a pretty hard tempo for the last half, felt good today.  Didn't look back and didn't get passed.

No woodpecker today but I did scare some quails out of the flowers by my driveway when I got home. 

Awesome run, I really felt good today.  Plan was for an easy effort run today, which I did.  The easy effort ended up being my fastest average pace run of the week and on top of that it was Friday I'm supposed to be tired today.  Wish every run could be like today's.

Good run in the wind this morning.  The wind was really kinda swirling coming from the West, Northwest, Northeast a little crazy but still a nice morning.

Great morning for a nice run today.  My hands got a little cold for the first couple of miles but not too bad.  Just the time of year, you kinda have to be ready for when the sun comes out and it warms up fast.

Drug myself through a very tired run this morning.  2 good things: 

1) I ran a good distance even though I was tired. I like these runs in a way because I think it helps in the future or during races when you get tired knowing you can push through it.

2) I had a really great effort for being tired today.

Good run this morning even though I only had about 5.5 hours of sleep.  Went to bed and my brain was going 100mph, I hate when that happens.

10 easy miles today that turned out to be not so easy but easy enough pace wise.  A little cold this morning at 39, I had to wear my light gloves.  What's up with that?

Half Marathon Monday...apparently, great morning and a good run if only my body would have felt the same way.  Got to 6-7 miles and I was done.  Managed to finish but now I'm sitting at work and I feel like I want to take a nap.  Plus some kind of pollen kicked in yesterday or today and my nose is running non-stop and my eyes are watery.

Good hard run today, didn't feel real well but the run was good.  I think the heat and allergies made me not feel good.  Must have subconciously felt like a hard run because I started out at a good pace for me and just went with it.

Decided to do my Friday 10 miler today since it may rain tomorrow and if I have to run on the TM I'd rather be tortured for 8.5 versus 10.  Good run this morning pretty uneventful just cruisin along.

Yahoo!  Rain held off until about 20-30 mintues after I got done and then it broke loose.  Great run this morning felt good.

Warmer and windy this morning, felt like it took me forever to finish today but ended up about normal.  Uneventful this morning and no complaints from me.

Great run today but warm out.  Didn't try to push anything just ran how I felt since my left achilles was a little twingy yesterday.

 PM - 3 easy on a windy but nice afternoon.  Unintended result from trying to turn my wife into a runner is making me realize I really like these afternoon easy jaunts.

Tired run this morning, allergies are kickin me again.  I had to wear light gloves for most of my run this morning, what's up with that it's almost June.  2 other runners out this morning, good to see.

PM - 3 easy on a great afternoon after work de-stresser.  No wind, happy day!

Great morning and a nice run today.  When I got woke up about 2-3AM by the howling wind I thought it was going to be a TM day but the wind died out and anytime I don't have to run on the TM is a good day.  Last 2 miles I stepped it up and ran really hard, felt good.

Perfect morning for a great run.  No traffic because of the holiday made it even better.  Ran 13.1 and when I got home my wife wanted to go out so I went for an easy 2 with her.  Now I'm tired but I have the rest of the day to relax and try to talk myself out of mowing the lawn.

Longest run yet in the Altra's, the more I run in them the better I like them.

Nice uneventful run this morning.  Succeeded in talking myself out of mowing the lawn yesterday so as a result I get to do it tonight.

PM - 2 miles after mowing the lawn.  Awesome evening out there.

This time of year is great, nice coolish morning.  I even got out later than usual because of some work stuff and it still felt nice.

PM - 3 easy in the very warm afternoon. Nice run, feel good.  Ran across something pretty inspiring, a pretty severely handicapped man, looks like he's paralyzed from the chest down, was mowing his lawn in his wheel chair.  You go man!
