Took Friday off, we were at University of Great Falls on a campus visit for my daughter.  She got offered a really nice scholarship to play soccer, I'm sooo proud of her.

Anyway, nice run on a really good morning for late November.  I'm not really sure what the difference is between the Kinvara 5 A/B pairs but I definately like the A pair better, no doubt.

I was cold this morning.  Of course I tried to be tough and wear shorts but I guess I'm not tough enough for that.  I'm usually ok around 28-29 degrees for shorts.  At one point my thumb started hurting so I had to tuck it into my fist, what's up with that?  I feel like a big wuss.  Now I'm sitting at my desk with a hot chocolate and a jacket and I'm still cold.

Slowly getting back to normal after being sick.  I'm probably about 90% now generally.  Good run on this Turkey Day, they're always good because there's no traffic and it's quiet and enjoyable.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Post Thanksgiving daze run this morning, but it was all made better when Riviera Paradise by Stevie Ray Vaughn came on the old iPod.  Great song to relax to during a good run on a quiet morning.
