Good run today on a great morning...wow 48 on December 2nd.  Felt much better today which is a good sign.  I think it really helped that the inversion cleared up, that really seemed to be bothering me this time around.

Anyway, running along this morning and a guy riding a bike and smoking passed me.  I guess since the inversion cleared up he still needed to breath dirty air.

Epic fail today as far as not being a wimp.  Looked out seen the snow and wind and hit the TM.  Luckily I had a couple of Daily Show's DVR'd to watch that helped with the boring boring run.

So...I really x 10 didn't want to run outside today but I really x 11 didn't want to run on the TM.  By a single really I ended up outside in the 9 degree temp.  At least I ran because I really x 12 thought about not running at all.  Not as bad as I thought it would be, I have to confess it never is.  Then again...5 shirts, tights, pants, gloves, hat I felt like Ralphies brother in 'Christmas Story' all bundled up.

Miserably cold this morning, 5 degrees light wind.  Not much more to say.

Got up a little early and hit the TM this morning while it snowed.  Set it at 7 and cruised, ran the last 1.25 at 7.3.

TM again.  I've kinda decided that I can't really run outside on red air days this year.  The bad air seems to be bothering me more this year than in the past so I don't want to push it.  Of course I may get really really sick of the TM and run outside anyway but for now I'm trying to stick to my guns so to speak.

Woke up the weather said yellow air at the time so I hit it outside.  Apparently whatever a yellow air day means is not good enough to run 13 miles in, now I have a scratchy throat and just don't feel right.  I'll have to remember this next time I get a crazy idea.

Run out in the bad air...boo.  Wore a neck gaiter pulled up over my mouth and nose to see if it would help with the bad air.  It must have helped because I feel better today than Monday.  Felt good to get outside.

Nice to get out for a run this morning.  34 degrees meant shorts..yeah!  Roads still pretty slick in spots almost went down a couple of times.  Interesting running under trees this morning as well, kinda like mini rain, slush, snow storms under each.

Wow, another run outside in shorts.  Cool thing this morning the roads looked like they were glittered and best of all for about 95% they weren't icy.  I'm not sure if it was just me but it seemed overly dark this morning.

Nice run this morning after a great Christmas.  I seem to have misplaced my hat right before a 17 degree morning.  I actually saw 1 other runner out this morning.  This time of year is great to run because the traffic is low due to the holidays, now if it could just be warmer:)

I was out the door running this morning at 3:30.  Couldn't really sleep so I thought why not.  It was really nice and quiet outside, except for the lady walking in shorts everything was pretty normal.  Came home and went to bed for a few hours before work but I can feel it's going to be a long tired day.
