Well from the weather forecast looks like this may have been the last nice morning for a bit.  Glad I got out today for a nice run.

Supposed to be an easy lunch cruiser but that wind was brutal...

Hurt my foot on Tuesday so I took Wednesday off and tried to keep it easy today.  It's all good.  Ended up chasing a herd of cows down the Emigrant trail in Syracuse by Schneiders Bluff golf course.  I'm glad they kept running in front of me and then cut off the trail.

First run of the season in snow.  Just a light snow shower but I'll claim it as a snow run...  Kinda caught up to the tail end of a bunch of National Guard guys doing some kind of timed run today toward the end of my run.  They had a car riding along with 2 guys at the back so somebody could "motivate" them to keep going, kinda funny.  That's a first in 17+ years of running.

Easy cruiser on the Emigrant trail.  A little slippery on a wooden bridge of all places.

Sweet run this morning on snowy muddy trails with Oreo and Gdoc.  We eventually made it to the mule ear trail after taking a detour to the waterfall trail in North Fork.  Thanks guys that was awesome.

Easy does it today, trying to keep my foot runnable at this point so no pushing things.  Everything was a-ok...

AM - Easy 3 on the TM watching last night's Daily Show.  Good show...and the TM was the TM.  Unfortunately it hasn't changed

5 at lunch with Nick from Pig Farm on the riverdale Parkway.  Great temps and a great way to avoid fast food...

Soooo hard to get out of bed this morning but I blasted my butt out and had a good run.  Not great but good and I'll take it.  Windy out this morning from the North/Northwest which is kinda rare for the morning.

Happy Thanksgiving...slow and clunky today on snowy, icy roads.  Good to get out on a great clear day.

Another snowy, icy run again this morning.  This time alone at home so not as fun as Saturday but still good to get out.  Woke up at 3:15 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep so I gave up about 4:45 and went out early.  Now I'm going to be tired all day.
