Way to windy outside and I had no motivation for a TM run.  Decided it was a good day to relax and not run.

Nice, peaceful run this morning.  Out the door an hour or so early so I could get to work early made it nice because there was very little traffic.  Cold at 21 but it didn't seem to bother me like it has recently.

Good run this morning made better by having no wind.  Coldest morning in a while, in an effort to find something positive about the cold.....slushy Powerade.  My Powerade was slushy, yummy!

Cold again at 15, according to the temp on the Hospital sign.  Good run, 2 months or so to go until we're out of the coldest, darkest part of the year.

Just think 1 week ago we were getting blown away.  Today was a great morning, my thermometer said 28 and I didn't believe it.  I should have because I overdressed a little and ended up pushing my sleeves up and taking my hat off.  Great run today, by the time was was about 1.5 miles in I realized I was pushing the pace so I went with it and had a good hard effort for the entire run.  Felt good.

10 easy squizy miles today.  Good run just chillin', figuratively and literaly.  Broke out some old Mizuno Wave Riders to run in today, not sure why just felt like it.

12 great miles on the 12th.  Air was supposed to be bad but it didn't look too bad so I ran outside.  Probably worse than it looks.

Light snow shower today, wasn't supposed to snow at all.  Good run especially with the 31 degree temp.  I'll take a light snow shower if it means 31.

10 easy today on snowy, slick, slushy roads.  Not sure what was up today but I had to wait a lot of different times for cars at intersections today.

I did not want to run today and the whole run felt like a struggle.  Glad I got out though, I like to use these day's as motivation for future tough days.

Had a hard time waking up this morning but once I woke up had a good run.  Nice tempo for the 2nd half.  Didn't see anybody else out this morning, I usually run into at least some walkers.

Good run this morning, I think I actually saw 3 people out this morning.  Kinda crowded.....  Good tempo for the last 4.25, tried to run hard but concentrate on relaxing.  Worked out well.

Cold run this morning.  My thermometer said 27, the Hospital sign was 20 and there was a NNW wind which made my 2nd half pretty much into a cold head wind.  Brrrrr.....  Treated myself to a hot shower and a hot chocolate for breakfast.

Why is it the colder it gets the more my nose runs and my eyes water.  Which is exactly what you don't want when its 12 degrees out.  Cold run on a quiet morning with very light traffic, made it nice along with slushy powerade.

Kinda bored this morning so I hopped on the TM for a good 10k.  Ready for 2 parties and then Santa tonight.

Good run this morning, I actually passed another runner and best of all it was on an uphill.

Really, really, really, really didn't want to get out of bed this morning.  Forced myself up and out the door for a good run this morning.  Figured I'd hit 10 today instead of tomorrow, if my motivation this week continues to wane then I only have 8.5's left this week.

 Nice sunrise through Weber canyon this morning:

Not too motivated again today but had a good effort for the run today.  It was a tropical heat wave this morning at 35, very nice for the end of December.

I can't wait for Spring.  Spring like morning today, 45 degrees and a light rain.  Very nice for the 29th of December.  Easy run today, tried not to push it which was good because my legs were tired today.

Cmon spring, another nice morning at 47 degrees no rain today.  Good run a bit tired so I took it easy.

Very pleased with my running year, initially I was shooting for 1400 - 1500 miles.  2100 miles is great, very happy with the year.
