Good run on a warm morning for Oct 3rd, it was around 60 degrees.  Took it easy because my hamstring tightened up Saturday, not really sure why but I didn't want to push it and have a problem.

Good run today although I got rained on 2 times.  The first 1.5 miles and the last 1.75 miles.  The last 1.75 I really got dumped on, here's a picture of the storm rolling in about 5 minutes before the downpour.  What's the old saying...red sky in morning....

Kind of a crappy run with the very windy conditions this morning.  Nothing like running 5.25 miles up hill into that wind.  Legs were pretty hammered after.

Cold and light rain this morning, temp was 40.  First long sleeve and glove run of the season....blah!  I was pretty much cold the whole time especially on the way back running into the Northwest wind.

Better run this morning, not much wind and it seemed warmer although the temp was the same.  Probably due to the lack of wind.  Nice cruiser, didn't worry about pace but I ended up running a decent pace.

Day off from work but I got up at 5:30 anyway and got out for a run, I'm nuts.

Good run.

Woke up with a big headache and my heel was a little sore so I bagged it.  To tell the truth it wouldn't have taken much to bag it and it didn't.

Got home at a little after midnight from the Foo Fighters concert last night.  GREAT concert they really rocked!

Didn't hear my alarm until my wife told me to shut it off.  I was going to bag the run again but I was awake by then.  Good run today, my feet were a little sore from standing on them last night for 2.5+ hours that the Foo Fighters played for.

Tuesday night really caught up to me this morning.  Somehow I managed to get out the door, I think I was still sleeping for the first mile or so because I don't really remember running it.  Good run but I need to start adjusting to the colder weather better.  I was still a little cold with 3 shirts on this morining and it was only 45.

Somewhat of an unofficial tempo for the last 4 miles felt good this morning.

A nice easy cruiser this moring to cap off a tired week.  Made a mental effort not to push it at all today.  Good run on a really nice morning.

Plan was for 12 today but I felt pretty good so I added the Piccolo Bros. pizza extension.  Good run, great morning.  Left calf and right hamstring just a little bit twitchy at times but no big deal.

Nice run again this morning felt pretty good. Traffic around South Ogden Junior high was nice in that there wasn't traffic becuase of the fall break. Usually it's pretty crazy up there.

I seen 3 other runners this morning, that's 2 days in a row seeing other runners when I usually don't.

Nice morning for a so so run today.  First half felt like I was running in slow motion and seemed like it took forever.  Second half was much better.

12 great miles this morning.  Initially my thought was to do an easy run this morning but I ended up pushing it pretty good without really thinking about it.  I love runs like this.  Felt great the entire run on  a perfect morning.

Windy this morning and it was raining lightly for the first 1.25 miles.  The wind was from the N-NW so I got the run at my back for the first half and then into the wind for the 2nd half so I was a little cold.  An easy cruiser this morning.

33 degrees this morning and I didn't want to get out of bed.  Not really sure how I made it given I was looking for excuses not to run in the cold and my iPod needed to be completely resynched and that took about 15 minutes.  Got out the door and man did that feel cold, wind out of the W-NW again this morning made for a really cold 2nd half.  Still had a good run and glad I got out.

Brrrr, cold miles with an awesome sunrise.  Ran 2 .4 fartleks 1 in each half of the run.  Quite invigorating and I was feeling it in the legs a little on the 2nd.

Nice cruiser this moring.  Original plan was to go 8.5 but I decided to add a little.  A little cold at times with 4 shirts, heavy gloves, and shorts.  I don't want to give up the shorts yet.

Supposed to be an easy get out in the beautiful weather run today.  The effort was easy but my pace was much better than I thought it would be.

 Anyway, how about that weather, beautiful day for a run.

A little windy this morning makes it fun to run uphill into the wind.  Good run, pretty uneventful.
