Cold front came through last night and it was nice and cool this morning.  At around 60 it was probably 15 or so cooler than yesterday morning.  Had a hard time waking up this morning even after I got up I felt asleep.

Run went ok and I finally woke up around 2.5-3 miles.  After mentally waking up I felt pretty good so I ran a 4 mile tempo for the last 4 miles.

Great run today, felt good and felt fast.  Ran the same pace as my tempo yesterday for the last 3 miles without even trying.  Good to get out.

Another great run up in Island Park.  Three deer scared the crap out of me jumping through the trees being up in bear country kinda makes you nervous.

No run today, sore right heel.  I think I'm going to rest it for a couple of days.

Chomping at the bit to get out for a run after two days resting my sore heel.  Still a little sore but better than it was on Monday after the run.  Maybe not my best idea to go 12 today but I was really feeling restless and needed to get out.  Ran the hose over my legs and heel for 5 mins or so after was cold but felt good.  So far so good with the soreness we'll see how the day goes.

I was up in Logan late at my daughters soccer game so tired run today was the plan.  Starting feeling ok with about 3 miles to run and ended up doing a tempo for the last 3 miles.

It was around 61 today, pretty bad when 61 feels a little warm.  It was mid-40's in Island Park for Saturday and Monday's runs.  It actually felt cool but great up there.

Great run today, felt really good.  Some soreness still in my right heel but I think it's getting better.  A lot of other runners out today, good to see.

Good run today and I was able to maintain a pretty good pace for me for the whole run.  Nice and cool outside, I could take this year round.  Only 1 other runner out this morning vs. 10 or so yesterday.

Had to be in SLC at 8 this morning.  I just couldn't drag myself out of bed early enough this morning so no run.

Dragging this morning, couldn't wake up.  Got myself out the door and had an absolutely great run.  Felt really good this morning, planned on going 8.5 but I added 2 miles.  Sunrise was pretty cool this morning at one point the light and sky was a light orangish color especially up through Weber Canyon.  Great to be outside today.

Great run today felt really good again.  Luckily we didn't get any smoke from the fire in Centerville, it was clear air this morning.

Got up and ran to make up for Wednesday.  Cool out this morning after  the rain last night.  Kinda wish I would have had a light pair of gloves, unfortunately.

Good run today, got about a mile in and decided to push the pace.  Pushed the pace not too fast but faster than normal for the next 11 miles.  Something in the air is making me a big booger machine when I run, seems like my nose never stops running.

Uneventful run today, didn't think about pace just ran.  Felt good, need to keep this good mojo going.

Very sleepy and tired today, had a hard time waking up.  That translated into a tired run today, glad I got out but I was tired for the whole run.

The week of tiredness continues.  Felt tired and my legs felt heavy today.  Overall a good run for being tired again.  Should be better next week, just having one of those tired weeks.

Good run today, felt much better than the last few days.  Just a nice cruiser on a great 1st day of fall.  2 different flocks of Canadian Geese flew over to celebrate. 

My heel felt better today than it has in a couple of weeks so hopefully I've turned the corner on that problem.

Good run this morning until about 4 miles left.  At this point I had to use the potty and had nothing available until I got home.  Made it back ok so that's the good news.

Up early to run because I have a lot of stuff to do today, my daughters soccer game is in Hyrum and my mother-in-laws retirement luncheon is today so I have to leave work early.  Good run aside from the potty problem again.....grrrrrr.

Haven't slept really well Sunday and Monday night so I was REALLY tired this morning.  Dragged myself out the door and had a good run.  A nice cruiser in the ever darkening morning.

I'm so not looking forward to winter.

A little tired today, pretty sure it was because I gave blood yesterday but otherwise a great run on another great morning.  Good tempo for the last 3.5 miles today even though I was tired.  I like to think if I can do it tired then I can do it anytime.

Great run this morning with a big flock of geese flying over honking away.  They fly pretty low seems like 30-40 feet over my head.

Tempo for the last 4 miles, hit it at 30 min.  Which is good for me.  I was trying to make it home early to prove to my wife that I could be home and ready before she got up and ready to go.  I WON!!!! Hahahahahaha
