Half Marathon Monday, Yeah!  Except today because I knew right off I wasn't feeling it today.  Got through the run ok, this is one of those runs that I can look back on and know I can do 13 no matter how I feel.  Really started to get hot outside with about 4.5 to go so I trudged home.  Got home and ran the hose on my legs for a little bit, felt good.

Hot, windy, tough miles today.  It was between 75 and 80 with a pretty warm strong wind blowing from the south.  Not sure why but once it gets above 70 especially with a warm wind that really wipes me out.

Awesome run this morning in the coolness in Island Park.  Took a couple of miles to feel completely normal at altitude but no trouble.

Back home in the heat.  Good run today I felt really good, could be coming back from running at altitude but I'll take it.  Ran the South Weber loop with the Joe's Pizza extension.

Trudging through the run today.  Very tired today but it was nice to get out and now I need a nap which I won't get.

Broken record time, the warm mornings are tough on me this year.  I seem to be having a hard time acclimating to the warmer mornings.

Feeling a little better today and had a pretty good run.  Added .5 just before home to make it 9 even this morning.

Out at 5 am so I could get my daughter up to Logan by 8:15 for a soccer game.  Hot, windy, and very smoky this morning.  There's not much worse for running.  It was 75 at 5 am and it's soooooo smoky I think I smoked 2-3 packs today, what's up with that.

Good run today, lots of clouds and even some light rain.  Ran down through South Weber again, that's a nice run.  At one spot probably 10+ miles in there's an automated radar sign that picked me up at 8 MPH, not too shabby for me especially since I'd forgotten about it and was just running without thinking about pace.

New shoe Tuesday.  I love new shoes, especially Kinvara's.  Great run on a cooler morning, uneventful today just out running.

Good run again and a decent ave. pace today.  I must have seen 10-15 other runners today which is really kind of rare for me, I usually see more bikers and walkers.  It was good to see so many other runners out.

Good run today although my legs feel a little tired.  Not really sure why but it is what it is.  Pretty uneventful run on a great morning.  Off to watch my daughter play soccer.

Up a little early so I could get more 'shade' time running, meaning more running before the sun came up.  Great run this morning.  Now I'm off to Roatan to dive for a week....

Back from a week of fabulous diving in Roatan Honduras.  One of the awesome dives we had...we were at about 85 ft and there was a 6-7 ft Nurse Shark napping on a ledge on the wall so we were taking a look and a 3ft Barracuda decided to join the group and stopped in the middle of us staring us down.  I could have reach out and grabbed it.  I was just starting to wonder who was on the menu when the dive master chased it off.

Took the week off from running on purpose to give myself a little break.  Back to the real world.  A little nervous about how I'd do this morning I haven't had a full 9 days off running in over 14 years.  Didn't push anything and had a pretty good run, it started to get hot around 8 or so miles and that made it a little tough but I got through it.  My wind was great no problems there, that's what was really worrying me.  Back to work tomorrow.

Back to the grind, day 2.  Legs slightly sore from yesterday but not too bad.  Still trying to get back to a normal schedule.  Good run today started to feel better about 8 miles in or so.
