It was 70 degrees and very windy this morning.  It did, however, get cooler as I ran.  There is colder weather for today (70).  After yesterdays 97 I will take it.  I ran 8.38 easy.

It was 50 degrees and calm this morning.  I ran 1.5 before meeting our group.  We ran the trail first and I ran all the loops trying to figure out our course for our 5k next Saturday.  Then Barry and I ran a bit more together before I finished by myself.  Total 8.11 miles.

It was 60 degrees this morning.  I ran to Barry's house and we went for a short run.  I ended up with 8.16 miles.  Then we got on our bikes and rode 16.57 miles including some time marking out a course for the July 21st "bandit" race we are doing for the Pioneer Day celebration.  It was a great morning to be out.
