Cold with snow today, light snow for the first 1.5 or so then again at 6.  Cold north/northwest wind for the last 4.5.  Run was great I hit a pretty good pace for me, cold/snow is BLAH!

What a crappy run, first run ever completely ruined by bad shoes.  It was torture today, I'll never wear those again.

Nice run down through South Weber this morning.  Great weather, nice to be outside.  South Weber drive was as busy with traffic this morning as I've ever seen it.  I run down there because it's not busy traffic wise.  That road has a lot of curves and there's no shoulder.

Just missed the rain, bummer.  Nice run again this morning in perfect temps, although it felt a little humid.  No complaints though.  I felt good this morning just cruisin.

Great run on a super nice morning, at least for me.  There was a water main break a block or so from my house and when I ran by this morning at about 6:30am there was a waterfall in the backyard of this 4-plex the whole yard was a lake and it was just starting to run down the stairs into the bottom floor apartments....bummer.

Run was good today, my stomach was on fire from a small piece of boston creme pie that I ate last night.  I have a little lactose problem and it's weird what things really affect me, like the pudding in the pie.  Anyway...tempo'd the last 2 miles.

Wierd knee pain after Monday's run so I took a few days off now to save really hurting myself.  Decided to try a run this morning, knee felt ok but it's not better yet.  I thought if I ran this morning that I'd rest it over the weekend and see how it goes.

Where to start....Ogden Half Marathon today....Very rainy, windy, and cold.  I haven't run any race let alone this one in a few years and it's getting way too crowded but that's to be expected because it's a great race and course.

I was hoping for anything in the 1:40's time frame.  I took my watch but promised myself I wouldn't look at it until the end.  I actually made it and didn't look until the end.  I wanted to run by feel and had a great race for me.  

 Tried to start out easy and then just run by feel.   Splits:  9:08 (lots of people to get around), 8:44, 8:32, 8:28, 8:10, 8:09, 8:00, 7:53, 7:47, 7:53, 8:12 (crowded parkway), 8:06, 8:00, 8:02 pace for .22. 

Anyway happy with the results this is definitely a PR for me and 15 minutes faster than the last time I ran the Ogden Half.

Wanted 10 easy this morning but an early work meeting made that impossible.  So I ran it at a pretty good pace today.

Now that I'm cooled down and relaxed at work there is some soreness coming back from Saturday.  Sore quads and my right calf is tight.  I'm not sure what it is about the Ogden course but I get sore everytime I run it.  I guess it's the downhill.

Recovery continues....still some residual soreness to work through from the race and yesterday.  Today was nice and easy cruisin along.

Nice surprise this morning, my daughter decided to run with me.  Awesome run, it was great to have company and it's nice to know that the old man had to hold back today:)

Some residual soreness still....stupid legs so it was a perfect day for a nice easy run.

Great run on a perfect morning.  Just cruisin today, legs started to get tired with about 1 mile to go so I'm pretty much recovered.  Although that seems strange that I'd have to recover since I do a half marathon every week but it is what it is.

Nice morning for a run until about 9.5 miles when it started raining.  Not too bad though it didn't rain too hard.  Luckily the rain really picked up right after I got home, not too often I can say that.  Usually I'm out in the middle of the downpour. 

Soooooo this makes the 2nd 13.1 mile run in a row that I've gotten rained on, last one was the Ogden half last weekend.

So so run today.  Tired, legs felt heavy, and I felt clunky.  Definately didn't feel fast today just ran how I felt.  Still happy to get out though.  A few sprinkles of rain here and there again today.
