13.6 early nice run but a little warm and humid.  .5 detour back home for a potty break, blah blah blah.

Got home and went for a 2 mile cool down with my wife and chloe.  Good stuff.

I really really had a hard time getting out the door this morning.  Finally talked myself into running and it turns out to be one of the warmest mornings all summer with a warm breeze as well.  That being said..had a great run this morning and I'm really glad I talked myself into going out.

Got up late today but at least I got up so a shorter run today.  I had a headache and felt a little nauseous when I first got up so I went back to bed.  Finally talked myself into a shorter run today.  Good run, it felt really good temp wise and I just cruised.  I must have needed a little more sleep because my headache was gone so good news there.

Did not sleep well last night.  Today's run was a grinder, at least it was nice and cool.  I was ready to be done at 5, 6.5, 9.5, and 11 miles.

For some reason I had a big sweatfest today.  Good run, ended up tempoing the last 4.25.  The rain held off until the last .75 so no complaints.

Windy, rainy run today.  No complaints, it didn't rain too hard.  The lightning stayed off in the distance so that worked out.

Windy again this morning, made it a little bit of a push for the first half uphill.  Just cruisin on the way back.  Legs are tired now, I'm tired now.  Hopefully I'll sleep in tomorrow.

Uneventful run this morning, just cruising along.  Just the way I like it.

Windy this morning and the weather report says it's not windy yet.  Good run up into South Ogden for a normal Tuesday.

What an awesome morning, temp was 52 or so and it felt great.  Had to get out a little early to get back and help with an upgrade for work.  Got back in time and got the upgrade done.

Light gloves today, ended up taking them off after I got warmed up.  That was an abrupt change and it was very nice to run in 44 degrees this morning.  Plan was for 10 but I had to take a detour.

Another good run on a great morning.  Enjoy it while we get it this week looks like Thursday may be really so so.  I had a flock of geese fly over honking today.  I wanted to tell them they were flying the wrong way, south, but I don't think they would have listened.

Nice run today again, whoohoo.  Great morning, the sunrise was awesome with the cloud cover going from pink to orange.

Easy peasy today, gave blood yesterday afternoon so no pushing it today.  I decided to switch today and tomorrow's run because it wasn't raining when I got up.  Ended up missing the rain altogether so that was good.  If I have to run on the TM I want it to be as little as possible and that 1.5 miles extra makes a big difference.

Brrrrr....not ready for 35 yet.  Cold until I got warmed up then I was ok.  But it took 3 lighter shirts and light gloves today.  We need  more nice fall weather.

Volunteering at the finish line for the Huntsville Marathon tomorrow..good luck to all those running.

What a grinder today.  Very windy and I felt really uncomfortable the whole time, never got into a good groove today.  I'll have to look back on this run as a character builder because it was a tough one.
