Tired run today, another hard time getting out of bed and out the door.  But as usual once out the door I was glad I got out.  Nice morning and just as the sun was peaking over the mountain, 'Here Comes the Sun' came on the iPod.  Perfect timing for one of my favorite songs.

PM - 6 miles - AWESOME, AWESOME run with Nick (Oreo) on the Bonneville shoreline trail.  Thanks for listening man!!  I can't thank you enough!

Alright, alright, alright...beat the rain this morning.  Good run just cruisin.  Very tired...my neighbors dog barked non-stop all night long.  They had a house fire in January and they aren't living there but the dog is as of this week so lucky me.

It started raining when I woke up and I thought...ok that's good enough to take a day off.  Then it stopped and I ran out of excuses today.  After all that, as usual, I had a good run and I'm glad I got out.

Raining too hard yesterday so no run.  Decided to run out to my daughters soccer game in Roy. Ran up Washington Terrace for 2 miles and then down and into Roy, I wanted to add a few miles because I knew the run to Roy wouldn't be long enough today.  Nice run, didn't get rained on so thats a plus.   Froze at the soccer game but that's ok, my daughter scored and their team won.

Good run this morning but it started out pretty cold for May.  Even though it was cold this is a great time of year to run, as soon as the sun came up it started warming and felt good.

PM - AWESOME 6.9 with Oreo up above the Dee Events center.  Love running the trails with Nick.

Awesome morning and an awesome race.  Thanks to Oreo for running with me and being a good friend.  The race felt slightly hard but not too hard so no complaints.  I wanted a 1:45 and got it, that and a PR on a 60 mile week... I'm very happy with the result what a great day.

Another nice morning but really pretty windy up through South Ogden coming out of the canyon.  Not the best to run into the wind on slightly tired legs but I got it done and as always glad I got out.

Another 10 miler this week.  Looks kinda like a pattern.  Another great morning for a great run.  Almost didn't get out, I was up at 3:30 then fell asleep at 6 and somehow woke up at 6:30 at the last minute to get a run in.

Awesome easy run today on the BST above Weber State.  I got some new shoes yesterday and I think it's an unspoken rule that new trail shoes need to be dirty within 24 hours of being purchased so I HAD to oblige.  Started at Bues pond and ran to the bench above Mt Ogden golf course...awesome.

Legs a little tired today from the "Easy" run yesterday.  Good run today just cruising, saw 3 other runners.  That's like a record or something.  Now to relax for the rest of the day.

A little warm this morning but still ok.  Lots of people out today and by lots maybe 10.  Felt ok today but my brain was spinning on something that I need to take care of so I was distracted.

What a grinder today.  Very warm and windy, struggled to get through at times and had super dry mouth today.

Awesome run this morning up Wheelers, Art Nord, Green Pond, Middle fork, and down Icebox canyon.  New favorite run, thanks Oreo!  Great time this mroning.  It's not often a 9 mile run feels like maybe 5.
