Very warm, windy this morning.  That's a double whammy for me I'm beat now.  Ended up running pretty hard today for some unknown reason so it ended up being a huge sweat fest.  Yep, I was putting out the vibe this morning...jk  I saw 7 other runners, all women, this morning which is kinda a lot for me.  What's up with the guys up here?

10 miles early on a great morning.  I almost rolled back over and went to bed this morning because I was sooo tired.  Glad I got up it was at least 10 degrees cooler this morning.

Got home and went for 2 more very easy with my wife and chloe.  Great morning all together.

Awesome easy run with Brandon and Ben on the Ogden River Parkway from Monroe park down to the confluence of the Ogden and Weber rivers and back.  Great run and great company.

Half marathon Monday.  Good run today down through South Weber and then back up into Washington Terrace.  Not too warm so everything went well and I felt pretty good running up 300 W. from Riverdale road into the Terrace to finish it off.

It was hard to get out of bed today I'm feeling lazy.  Finally drug myself out for a good run.  I have to run through 2 construction zones now even though I stick to the back roads.  The second one started Friday last week.  Hopefully they get it done before school starts because that area gets kinda crazy in the mornings when school's in.

New route today, I decided to mix it up a little.  Ran down 300W to Riverdale Road, west to the Weber River parkway and then north to about 27th St. and then back.  Good route, it's nice to run by the river for a while plus it's a little cooler down there.  I used MapmyRun today, I don't usually time myself, but it ended up being 7:59 min/mile ave.  So I'm happy with that.

Blahhhh.  Did not want to wake up this morning, I'm not sure why I'm sooo tired.  Got out for an easy run and glad I did but I think I did the Zombie run because I definately felt dead today.

Tired miles today on a great morning.  Still tired but glad I got out.  Up a little late last night because we were in Brigham City for my son's LAX game so got to bed late and then up earlier than normal to run this morning.  Not a good idea if you're tired but the LAX game was fun.

Ok so whatever 'IT' is I usually don't have very much 'IT' but today I didn't have any 'IT'.  Grinder today, just not feelin it. My son has a cold so hopefully it's not the beginning of that.

Woke up with a head ache and not much motivation to get out of bed today.  Boy am I glad I did.  Had a great run this morning.  The head ache went away and I ended up doing a tempo for pretty much the whole run.  Feelin good now after as well.  Good running day today.

Good run on a slightly smokey morning.  Cmon firefighters...get those fires out.  For as dry as it is here we've been pretty lucky so far fire wise.

Nice run up Washington Terrace, down into South Weber, back into Riverdale and up again into Washington Terrace.  A little warm at the end but overall a great run today.

Easy cruiser on a pretty warm morning.  Cloud cover kept it toasty.  First day of school....back to busy traffic.  Blah Blah Blah

So for a change today I decided to let it rain on me..jk.  I did get rained on, big drops, for about .5 then a light sprinkle for about 4 more.  Nice change this morning it was nice to get rained on.

Got out a little late this morning but it turned out ok because there were clouds to give some shade and keep the temps nice.  10 miles at HMP today, not really trying to do that but it ended up that way.  Happy with the workout.

Didn't really feel to good today, so so run on a warm windy morning.  Had to make a .5 detour home at 5 miles to make a potty stop.  Ok after but still not feeling great.

Had a hard time getting out of bed today, it was one of those days when my alarm clock went off I almost slept through it because it was more irritating than anything else and it took a few seconds to realize it was my alarm.  Good run today once I got myself out of bed and out the door.

Nice run mostly on the Weber River parkway from Riverdale down to Ogden and back.  Klutzy moment of the day....under the 24th St. overpass I tripped and fell in an uneven spot (about 3in difference).  I need to have some excuse;)

Tired run up through Wash. Terrace and South Ogden today.  Woke up around 2 miles in and just cruised from there.

I owe this run to my dog.  If she wouldn't have gotten up when my alarm went off I wouldn't have run.  Soooooo tired today, not sure what's up.  Ended up having a great run.  Got home and found that one of my water bottles fell out somewhere so I had to hop in the car and find it.  It fell out just after I turned around and I found it in good shape, luckily it hadn't been run over.
