Good run on my day off.  Got up early so I didn't have any excuses today.  Feeling better but I'm still maybe 75-80%.  How can the human body produce soooo much snot?

Maybe a light at the end of the tunnel this morning.  While not great, I did feel slightly better.  Less coughing and I caught a little bit of a second wind at about 6 miles or so.

I didn't want to get out of bed this morning, I was ever sooo close to rolling over and sleeping some more.  I think the only thing that got me out the door was my thermometer, it read 41.  Great morning, I felt both good and bad throughout the run today but glad I got out.  Did anybody else see the AWESOME was so red with the clouds through Weber Canyon.

Colder out today but the coughing while running was much less today so I'm happy with that progress.  I'm still fatigued a little but it's getting better although not as fast as I'd like.  Good run today even though I was ready to be done about 6 miles in.

So So run today, just didn't feel it.  Then to top it off at 3 miles the rain/snow started.  I got cold today because I underdressed and didn't plan on being wet.  I guess I've got to change gears and start thinking weather a little bit now....bummer.
