Good run this morning after the vacation since Thursday.  I was lazy and decided not to run on Friday so this was a 3 day weekend.  We were up in Island Park, Idaho.  Awesome weekend, went fishing, ATV riding, boating.  We had a great time.  Went over to Henry's Lake Outlet to do some flyfishing and my son drove over on the ATV to tell me breakfast was ready, right then a big bull came out of the bushes and started grunting and moaning.  Made us kind of nervous so we got out of there pretty quick without incident.  But I caught a few nice fish beside the bull problem.

Nice morning, it actually cooled down to the lower 60's felt good.  Just a nice run this morning, lots of other walkers and runners out there today.  A couple of new runners that I hadn't seen before.  Hopefully they'll keep up the good work.

Just a short nice easy run today.  A little smoky but not too bad.  I got to get me some new headphones, the right side is shorting out and it keeps going on and off every couple of seconds it's driving me nuts.  Didn't feel tired at all today.

Felt a little tired this morning when I got up, slept really well though.  That tired feeling didn't carry over into my run this morning, I felt good today.  Nice morning, I tried to race the sunrise this morning on the first half since I run south and east.  It was close but I made it half way, the sun was trying to peak over Mt. Ogden for about the last mile but I beat it.

Finally remembered to get some new headphones yesterday so the music didn't keep cutting in and out driving me nuts today.  I got some smaller ear bud type I'm hoping they last longer than they have in the past.  I keep sweating them out and they stop working.

Good run today, I felt like pushing it a little bit on the 5th mile but I held back just trying to take it easy today.
