Raining pretty good this morning made me lazy so I rolled over and fell asleep.  Felt a little guilty so I hit the TM for 5.5, that's all I had time and the will to live on the TM for.

Nice to get back outside after yesterday on the TM.  Good run in the dark.  Some dog being walked on a leash scared the crap out of me at a dark spot, didn't see it and it came after me until it got choked out by the leash.

Plan was 8.5 but I felt really good today so I added the Piccalo pizza extension for 10.  Felt like I could keep on running, great day.

Nice easy cruiser in the warm, windy morning.  Nice run although I over dressed a little by design so I could have a good sweat.  Not sure what's up the last 2 days but the traffic has been crazy, seems like non-stop cars even on the back roads.

Nice run this morning, not too cold but first run in a while with snow on the ground.  Still holding strong and wearing shorts.

Colder this morning at around 27.  I think I found a 4 shirt layer combination that keeps me a little warmer.  Still hanging strong in shorts although not sure how much colder I can go, my legs felt cold.

Gave in and wore pants today, it was professionaly cold out at 21.  My hands are still cold and I've been done for more than 2 hours.  Good morning and a good run otherwise.

Good run this morning even though I'm feeling a little tired since I'm not sleeping real well since the time change.  Great moon set in the west and sun rise in the east this morning, nice to be out.

Great run this morning on my day off.  Plan was for an easy cruiser for my 2nd half marathon of the week.  Ended up beating my last Ogden time by 5-6 minutes, so overall I'm happy with that.

Warm, windy morning at 41 degrees.  Great, uneventful run this morning.  Felt good and back to shorts for today.

Good effort today for a great run.  A little dog jumped out and startled me this morning, the thing that really bothers me about this is the owner just stood about 50 ft away trying to call the dog.  The dog was barking and jumping on me not listening to the owner, she needed to come get the dog instead of yelling at it.

Good pretty much uneventful run this morning.  A different dog came running after me and jumped on me this morning.  It wasn't threatning at all but I had to stop, which I don't want to do.  I had to yell at the house to get them to come get it.  I finally just took off with the dog following me, I let them worry about chasing it.

Warmer and windy this morning.  I'll take windy if it gets me 40 degress all winter.  I'm not sure what was up today but I felt kinda clunky today, not smooth at all.

Got to the top of Washington Terrace today and ran by the remnants of a house that had burned down last night.  The front of the house was still standing but the roof and the rest of the house was burned out.  Fire was out but all the trucks and hoses were still around.  Scary stuff, hopefully everybody made it out.

Really good run this morning that almost didn't happen.  I woke up and saw how strong the wind was blowing and almost went back to bed.  Good tempo for the last half, ran at a good pace but I felt relaxed.

My wife is sick this weekend so we've done absolutely nothing.  Got a little stir crazy so I hit the TM for a nice easy run.

Back out into the great outdoors this morning for fog and rain.  The rain was switching back and forth between a light drizzle and a light rain.  Kinda funny seeing a few walkers out this morning in heavy parkas and I'm in shorts.  Good run much better than the TM.

Easy cruiser this morning, a little icy in spots today.  Not enough to slip and fall just enough to effect push off a little.

Not a great run this morning but glad I got out.  My head just wasn't in it until about 7 miles or so.  I was actually ready to be done before I got 2 miles in.

Heard the Union Pacific stream engine that was down in Ogden blow it's whistle this morning as it was leaving.  Pretty cool sound and not something you hear everyday anymore.

Easy run this morning, a little windy out of the canyon this morning but otherwise uneventful.

Nice morning for a run.  Had to get out a little early so that we could get to Ephriam for my wife's grandmas funeral.  Sad day she was a great lady.
