Miserable run this morning, it was about 80 when I started with a pretty strong hot wind.  The saving grace was some strategically placed clouds so that 80% of my run was in the shade.

Felt like I was getting a blister today which is odd because I never have blister problems.  Behind my right big toe on the ball of my foot was pretty painful from about 1 mile on.  Hopefully it will be ok tomorrow.

Much better run this morning.  Temps about 5-8 degrees cooler and a slight breeze that wasn't hot.  I seem to overheat easily for some reason.  Got out earlier and with some more strategically placed clouds I got shade for the entire run this morning.

Great music today, started out with Van Halen Take Your Whiskey Home and finshed off with Van Halen Little Guitars.

Great run this morning, felt good today.  A little breezy so that felt good.  A lot, by a lot I mean 3, other runners out this morning which is more than I usually see.  Got started a little late needed to get my daughter up for soccer practice so I got a little hot with the sun beating on me for the last mile or so.

Temps were a little cooler this morning, low 60's but I had to start late because I took my daughter to soccer practice.  Just getting miles in today not a great run.  Felt like I was running in place for the entire run, seemed like it took FOREVER to finish.  Glad it's done today and glad I went.

Better run today, got out earlier.  Back to warm and windy but at least I got about 5 miles before the sun came up over the mountain.  Didn't feel like I was running in place today so overall the run was pretty good today.  Pretty uneventful otherwise.

Pretty good run today, I felt better than the last couple of days.  Temps were cooler this morning I think probably helped.

Some great tunes today, Johnny Lang.

No running last week, my wife and I were in Roatan, Honduras on a dive trip all week.  AWESOME!!!!!!  Great time.

Came back from 80 degree high humidity nights, it felt like you could chew the air down there to a 50 degree morning.  Felt really good running this morning for taking the week off, loving the cooler temps.

Good run this morning.  Decided to add a detour through Rohmer park to add .5.  A little warmer today than Monday but overall I felt good today.

Perfect morning for a run.  Temps were upper 40's with no wind and the sky was clear.  Just great being outside.  I wish it would stay like that all winter long.
