AM - just under 5 miles with Dan and the dogs early on the horsetrail roads - morning temps are still chilly - in the upper 30's.   Ready for springtime to start feeling more like springtime.

AM - a little over 5.25 miles with Dan and Finn from Dan's house - decent pace today without his dog - who is really sweet, but not much of a runner and she tends to drag back on the leash and slow the pace.  Some days that's good for recovery type runs.

AM - 4.25 miles - awoke a little late and short on time.  Tried out the new AlphaFly Nikes.  Quite an unusual looking shoe - and the first half mile felt like I was running on springs.

AM - 3 easy miles on the treadmill - I awoke with the beginnings of a cold with a sore/swollen throat - and it was raining outside.
