Good run today after not running yesterday.  Just overall exhausted yesterday so I slept in.  What's with this summer and the warm mornings.  Pushing 80 again this morning before the sun was up, the roads are still warm at those temps makes my feet hot.  I've now determined that the higher the temps get above 75 the slower I run, not that I'm fast anyway.

A little cooler this morning made for a really nice run.  Didn't hurt that I had to be out the door a little early so I was 7+ miles in before the sun came up.  Aside from 2 dogs being loose at about 8 miles in, I have to thank the cat and other runner that came along to distract them, pretty uneventful today.

Nice easy run this morning when I woke up at 6:30.  A runners curse is waking up early on a Saturday without an alarm.

Just watched Galen Rupp win silver in the 10K, AWESOME!

Grinder down through South Weber this morning because it was pretty warm this morning.  Good run otherwise.  I wish I could adjust to the heat better.  Same dog loose at the same spot as Friday today, hopefully this won't continue.

Great run today but a really weird morning.  Looking at the mountains it looks smoky but I couldn't smell any smoke so that was good.  The sun coming up was really red this morning through all the smoke by the mountains.  It made for a really cool redish light this morning.

I added the Rohmer park extension for an extra .5 this morning.

Good but slightly uncomfortable run today because I had to make a pit stop from about mile 3.5 on without anywhere to make a pit stop.  3 dogs out today, including my neighbors, hopefully it didn't crap on my lawn.  None of the dogs bothered me though so that was good.

Warm and humid today made for a big sweatfest.  I was a sweaty dude today.  Great run otherwise I really felt good today and had a really good effort.  To make it even better some well placed clouds gave me shade for about 8 miles.

Nice run down through South Weber this morning.  Nice morning because the cloud cover giving me lots of shade.  Legs started feeling it a little bit running up 300 W, the hill from Riverdale Rd. back up into Washington Terrace for the last .5.

Half Marathon Monday and a nice run this morning, although I had to add .5 for a detour back home at 3 miles or so.  Clouds around the mountains kept the direct sunlight off me for around 9 miles.  I must be chaneling Ryan Hall a little because I had some tightness in my hamstring this morning so I took it a little easy.

Better run this morning, I wasn't so tired.  Plus it was a little cooler at around 67, it felt good.  I think I seen 5 other runners out this morning, it's getting too crowded on my route with that many other runners.

Good morning, felt tired but the run today was a really good effort so I think that's why I was tired.  Pretty smoky out although I can smell or taste it, hopefully it clears out soon.

Nice run down, took my South Weber route this morning.  Good choice, it was noticably cooler at the bottom of the hill with a slight breeze and it felt good.  My legs felt it running up 300 W into Washington Terrace for the last .5 though.

An I haven't seen this before note, some people on South Weber drive are growing Egg Plants in their garden.  I bet they have at least 30 plants.

Nice run down through South Weber.  This run is a really good change of pace for me.  A little worried because my back and hip were a little sore from helping my son change his brakes and rotors yesterday afternoon but no problem running.

Really nice run today aside from the smoke.  Normal walkers and a couple of new runners out this morning.  Took the Rohmer park extension for  the extra .5 today.  Uneventful run today, no complaints.   Enjoying a nice bowl of oatmeal now...mmm tasty.

Warm and muggy today but the smoke is gone, YAHOO!  Back to high traffic days as school started.  I had to wait everytime I had to cross a street, blah blah blah!  Run seemed to take FOREVER today, what's up with that?

What a great morning and a really good run.  I was cruising along today and I didn't have to stop for traffic either.

Another nice run down through South Weber and then back up into Washington Terrace.  Seems like the smoke is back though...not good.  Dead animal total on the road today:  cat, deer, racoon, skunk, and bird.  I didn't notice any of these on Monday when I ran through so not a good week down in South Weber for animals.

Very nice run this morning that was pretty uneventful other than a .5 detour home at about 4.5 miles for a potty break.  Felt warm this morning after being in Yellowstone this weekend fishing.  Awesome fishing trip catching yellowstone cuts.  We were up around Ashton, and I kinda had the urge to run in the Mesa Falls half but the fishing was much more fun.

10 easy miles today because it was very hot this morning.  80 degrees at 6 AM on August 29th is hot.  After running a little hard yesterday I decided to take it a little easy today.  Good run altogether.

Forgot I was supposed to get up a little early for an appointment at my daughters school. So, I ended up running an 8.5 mile tempo today.  The pace felt pretty hard but maintainable, which was great.  Made it to the appointment a couple of minutes late so overall it worked out and I got a good tempo in for the week.

Nice run down through South Weber this morning.  Felt ok after the big tempo yesterday but didn't really push it today.  A guy getting his mail asked me if I was having fun yet.  Funny question, I answered 'heck, yeah'.  I think he thought I was kidding because he laughed. 

Allergies are killing me the last couple of weeks, looking at the pollen counts looks like it's chenopods that are doing it to me.

Nice month for me, 230 miles.  That's definately in my top 5.
