Warm, windy morning at 41 degrees.  Great, uneventful run this morning.  Felt good and back to shorts for today.

Good effort today for a great run.  A little dog jumped out and startled me this morning, the thing that really bothers me about this is the owner just stood about 50 ft away trying to call the dog.  The dog was barking and jumping on me not listening to the owner, she needed to come get the dog instead of yelling at it.

Good pretty much uneventful run this morning.  A different dog came running after me and jumped on me this morning.  It wasn't threatning at all but I had to stop, which I don't want to do.  I had to yell at the house to get them to come get it.  I finally just took off with the dog following me, I let them worry about chasing it.

Warmer and windy this morning.  I'll take windy if it gets me 40 degress all winter.  I'm not sure what was up today but I felt kinda clunky today, not smooth at all.

Got to the top of Washington Terrace today and ran by the remnants of a house that had burned down last night.  The front of the house was still standing but the roof and the rest of the house was burned out.  Fire was out but all the trucks and hoses were still around.  Scary stuff, hopefully everybody made it out.

Really good run this morning that almost didn't happen.  I woke up and saw how strong the wind was blowing and almost went back to bed.  Good tempo for the last half, ran at a good pace but I felt relaxed.
