Morning:  I don't have to work today so I waited until it was light to run.  It was 30 degrees with light winds this morning.  I ran 16.27 miles nice and easy.  I wanted to get a few extra miles in as I am going to California Tues-Thurs for work and don't know how many miles I can get in.  I am, however, looking forward to running in warmer weather :-)

Afternoon:  Sue and I drove up to the Nordic center outside of town and went cross-country skiing.  We went 3.88 miles and worked pretty good.  It was fun.

Morning:  It was 20 degrees this morning, snowing, and the wind was blowing 20mph.  I only had time for 10.17 this morning as I need to get to the airport for my flight.  More comfortable running the next 2 days :-)

Morning:  It was 40 degrees with light winds in Anaheim, CA this morning.  The 85% humidity made it feel cooler but I was in shorts and a light shirt and I did not care.  I don't know weather it is the temperature, light clothing, or the sea-level air but I was quick this morning.  I ran 12.22 miles with nothing worse than a 7:13 mile! I get 1 more day of this before I am back in the real world of winter.

Morning:  It was 46 degrees with light winds and 99% humidity (it had just finished raining) in Anaheim this morning.  The temps were perfect.  I ran the same route as yesterday, 12.25 miles, but I was 2 1/2 minutes FASTER!!!  I kept all but the first 2 miles under 6:55 and felt awesome.  I fly home tonight so back to the snow....

Morning:  It was 6 degrees this morning.  I'm definitely back home.  That is 40 degrees colder than my run yesterday!!!  I ran 15.28 miles and actually held a good pace the whole way.  Maybe I am getting faster....who knows?
