Nice run on a cool morning.  Decided to take it easy this week just to let things chill out.

Kinda tired this morning so I didn't push it.  I think I paid the price for no sleep Monday night.

PM - Awesome 4.25 on the BST above Weber State.  What a perfect night out.  Very nice.

Hard time getting out of bed today, tired.  Glad I got out, had a good run on a nice morning.  Had to make an unplanned stop but at least it was at the right time when I could.

Great, great run this morning with Oreo on the Sardine loop up at Snow Basin.  Started from the lower parking lot due to some bike races up there this morning.  Trail is beyond $$$$ right now and the views and the colors are awesome.  Thanks Nick!!!

Awesome Columbus day run with Oreo on the BST starting at Rainbows and going south.  Windy and cold to start but trail was great and Oreo took it easy on me...  As always thanks Nick great run.

No run today, bummer.  Walking out the door and work called, talk about bad timing.

Warm, windy, and dark today.  Not sure why it seemed so dark but it was.  Stupid construction up on Adams Ave. in South Odgen keeps messing with me.  Otherwise a good run.  Nice to get out.

Good hard run today, felt good and not so tired today for a change.  I beat the 8 min guy which is good for me.

PM - 5 a little harder than I wanted but still a great run no complaints.  Riverdale parkway with the AFCU running group which tonight included Nick, Brandon, Cindy, Brad.  Fun stuff, great company.

Sore hamstring today so I decided not to run my normal run.  Had the day off work so I took my car to get an oil change, ran home.  Realized I locked myself out so I had to "break" in kinda.  Mowed the lawn and then ran back and picked my car up.  Fun, fun day off.  Wanted to hit a trail but decided not to risk the hammy....

Spent some time in my church this morning.  So happens it was in Wheeler/Icebox canyon, running Nicks loop.  Trail is $$$$.  Yes, that's a 4 out of 4 $ rating.  Awesome, awesome run this morning.  Forgot about deer hunt, didn't wear anything orange.  Glad I didn't get shot ;)  Hammy felt good.

Good run this morning although I was really groggy this morning and it was hard to get up.  Took it a little easy today since my hamstring is a little sore.

Sweet run on Indian Trail from Ogden Canyon to Rainbow Gardens with Nick.  What an awesome trail, but then again there isn't really any bad trails around here.  Still trail was $$$$, yes another 4 $ out of 4 on the rating scale.  Thanks Nick!!!!
