Very thankful for the clouds this morning.  It was very warm and windy and the clouds saved me from a very tough run.  I was shaded for about 80% of the run today which was much better than running in the sun when it was 80 degrees at 6:45 this morning.

Didn't sleep well, weird dreams, and woke up with a headache.  It was 80 outside with a stiff warm southern breeze.  If that doesn't spell day off I don't know what does.

Much better night and a perfect morning.  Great run felt refreshing today with temps around 55.  Quite a change from the 80 yesterday.  Added the extra .5 through Rohmer park while my daughter was at Soccer conditioning.

Stupid smoke!  Good run today aside from the smoke pretty uneventful.  After yesterday I guess the days of the cool spring runs are over and now for the hot summer mornings.

New route today, yahoo!  I found a nice loop today instead of my normal out and back.  I ran up Washington Terrace and then down the Adams Ave. Parkway into South Weber, west on South Weber Drive(a little sketchy this road has NO shoulder) into Riverdale, onto River Drive, Riverdale Road over the viaduct and then back up 300W into Washington Terrace.  The only bad thing about this is the big hill back up into Washington Terrace at 10 miles into my run.  Wasn't real easy but not as hard as I thought it would be.
