Didn't feel great this morning but forced myself to run 10 outside since it was such a nice morning.  very slow, exactly 9:00 avg pace, I know this cause I stopped my watch right at 10 miles and 1:30.

It's funny how 55 degrees with wind seems freezing but 41 degrees with no wind is warm.  I can't ever get my running wardrobe quite right.

10 miles out to Smiths and back, ran the last mile in 7:05, I was trying to keep it at 6:45 but it's hard to do on an uneven dirt road.

Beautiful morning, 10 miles to Smiths and back.

What do people think about the Sub 2 hour Marathon attempt tomorrow?

I'm in New Orleans for the day, years ago when I used to travel more I came to New Orleans and saw people running down the middle of the train tracks on St. Charles.  I thought they were crazy at the time cause "Mamma said never run on Railroad tracks" I've since figured out that running down the tracks is the thing to do in New Orleans, just stay on the left side so you can see the train coming, they are only going about 15 - 20 MPH so it's pretty easy to just step out of the way and they only come about every 10 minutes. 

4 miles exaclty from the hotel out to Autubon park, 1.75 mile loop around the park, I ran a little further to make sure I got 10 in and then 4 miles back.  I was feeling a little sick towards the end, I'm not used to running in hot humid.

I'm in Sunnyvale for the rest of the week, ran 1 mile on the hotel treadmill and decided that was no fun and went outside to find the river trail.  Very nice run, I love it here because there are trails everywhere and the temperature is always perfect in the morning.

Ran out to Smiths and back, wicked headwind coming back. I ran into Carina on my last mile and ended up chatting with her for a bit and got an extra 1/2 mile in.

Convinced my 15 year old to go running with me today cause sometimes you have to teach them about the tortoise and the hare.  He always is calling me slow cause I can't keep his 5:30 pace when we go for short runs but today I made him stay with me, then guess who was laughing on the final mile.  :)

More hiking than running this morning, alergies are just making it really hard to run lately.
