Philadelphia:  Had early morning meetings today so stayed in on the TM and had to cut my run a little short.  I felt better today but just crusied along.  Gradually picked it up as I went along.

It was a nice morning today around 32 with light wind.  I felt pretty good but just took it easy as I continue to try to get the mileage back up.

Had a stomach virus today. Couldn't get out of the bathroom long enough to consider running.

Nice day today with temp in mid 40s and light wind.  I felt much better but just took it easy and wanted to get back in the swing of things.

I had to get up a 4 for a flight and then had meetings all day until around 9 so no running today.  Pretty wiped out.

DC:  I just ran on the hotel TM.  I felt pretty good but didn't have a lot of time so had to cut the run short.  Glad to get in a run and some inconsistent days lately.

DC:  Hotel TM again today.  I felt good but just ran easy.  Trying to get back into a groove running wise.  Starting to feel stronger just have to get my consistency back.

Cool (28) and windy day so it felt colder than normal.  I felt pretty good today and just took it easy.  It was nice to get outside after a couple of days on the TM.  I didn't really dress warm enough for the weather so was cold going out into the wind but much better the last half.

It was snowing and windy out today so just stayed inside on the TM.  I felt good and didn't really push it but increased the pace as I went along.  Ended up the last mile around 7:24.

Kauai, HI:  Traveled out here yesterday and was tired when we got in so didn't run.  I got out early this morning and it was nice.  It was around 70 with some wind.  I went out on a country type road and it was nice to just enjoy the peace and quiet.  I could really see the stars and really enjoyed the run.

Kauai, HI:  Was out early again this morning and just stayed on the same route since I enjoyed it so much.  It is mostly out into the wind and mostly up hill.  That makes the run back fun with the wind at my back and mostly a gently downhill.  Felt pretty good today and pushed it a little on the way back.

Kauai, HI:  Another nice morning and ran the same route.  I was a little tired today.  May be the jet lag catching up with me and not sleeping enough.  I just took it easy but still enjoyed the run.  It is hard not to enjoy anything out here since it is so beautiful.

Went surfing today and then came back to the hotel and went to the beach with my wife.  The surfing took more out of me than I thought it would and just decided to take it easy today.

Kauai, HI:  Another nice morning for running.  Today I went down another road that turned into a dirt road that I followed until it dead ended a a beach.  It was a beautiful location and came back to this point later with my wife.  I felt pretty good today and ran easy.  It was real windy so that slowed me down some.

It was a nice day today with temp around 40 and some light wind.  I felt pretty good today.  A little jet lag but otherwise was good.  It was a nice run and I just took in easy and enjoyed the nice day.

It was a beautiful morning but a little cool (28) with some light wind.  I felt good this morning and it was nice getting out today.  Nothing special on the run but it is good to get in the miles without any problems.  Hope it can stay this way for a while.

Off and on rain today and very windy so stayed in on the TM.  I felt pretty good today and ran easy.  I gradually picked it up as I went along and was good the whole way.  The rest of the week looks really good so should be able to get outside the rest of the time.

Super windy and rainy out today so ran on the TM.  I felt good and took it pretty easy.  I did increase the pace as I went along and ended up pretty good.

Honolulu, HI: Traveled out yesterday and got in too late for a run.  I got out early this morning and did the run up to Diamond Head. I felt good this morning and just ran along.  I didn't have Garmin so just ran by feel.

Honolulu, HI: Nice morning out today.  I ran down by the beach around 4:30 so it was pretty quiet and beautiful with the stars shining and the waves coming in.  I felt good and just took it easy today.
