Better run today on a great morning.  Felt much better today but not 100%.

Weird week, today I felt like I was in slow motion.  Weird.  Anyway nice to get out otherwise and seen more geese flying over.  They look surprisingly big when they're flying low.

The feeling slightly off week continues.  Glad I got out but still just a little off, not sure what's up.  Switched my normal Thursday and Friday runs again because it wasn't raining this morning.  I guess it's that time of year where you have to take what the weather gives you sometimes.

Cold run this morning with some snow up in South Ogden.  It wasn't snowing but there was snow on the grass from last night.  First snow of the season...bummer that means winter is really coming.

Nice run this morning, I felt much better as compared to last week.  Had a weird mental thing today..I couldn't imagine myself being able to run 13 miles.  It just seemed impossible but I got it done.  Weird.

Great run on a perfect morning.  Just cruisin and taking what the weather gives right now.  Decided to run 10 instead of 8.5 since it's supposed to be bad Thursday-Friday.

So I had a quandry this morning about how to dress....and I did not choose wisely.  I under dressed today and got cold.  Not too bad though.  Still overall good run on a nice morning.  No problems so no complaints.

Surprisingly nice run in the rain this morning.  The rain was good for a change and I just cruised today.

Ok run today, my stomach wasn't really doing to well this morning.  Ate too much for lunch yesterday and paid for it.  I need to remember that next time...

Columbus day and I'm out at 6:20 running.  Wanted to sleep in but the run probably wouldn't have happened so I got up.  Good run today, just missed the rain so nice morning.

Holy crap I'm going to keep beating this perverbial dead horse...I'm cold.  Good run other than I was cold the whole time.  It seemed much colder this morning but my thermometer said only 2 degrees colder.  Lots of other runners out today.

Really, really tired today.  So I didn't push it, since I've run 2 tempo's the last 2 days it wasn't a big deal.  I soooo could have rolled over and kept sleeping.  Why can't this happen on a Saturday or Sunday when I really could sleep in...oh well so is the life of a runner.  Wouldn't trade it for not running.

Nice run this morning just cruisin.  The moon was really awesome this morning.  It was full and setting into the west turning yellow.  Really neat and the only way I'm seeing that is if I'm out running.

First off I'm sick and couldn't sleep last night so there was no way I was getting up this morning.  So I decided since the weather is sooooo nice I'd take a nice easy lunch time run.  Great to get out in the middle of the day for a nice run.  Still not feeling well but I went and got me a Slurpee to help me feel better:)

Wear testing Saucony Kinvara 5's today.  Great shoe so far, very light and very springy and they make me feel fast.  Fits my foot well especially in the fore foot area.

The run was a huge drag today.  I'm pretty sick so it was tough today, felt like I was in a weird daze.  I think I just kicked into automatic mode and ran.  The whole time my brain was telling me you don't feel well enough to do this but my legs kept going thankfully.

Much better this morning, I think I'm starting to break out of this crap.  Made myself really take it super easy today.

Tried to get for a run but I couldn't stop coughing and I really couldn't breathe.  Had to bag it at 2 miles.  This STUPID cold has gone to my chest.
