It was 62 degrees this morning.  I ran 13.27 miles in a pretty easy pace.  I was chased by 2 dogs today but nothing serious.  I just realized that I passed my previous all-time yearly mileage total recently.  In 2002 I ran 2403 miles for the year and I am now ahead of that.

 OK....this was my Monday run, I just put it on the wrong day.

It was 60 degrees and a little breezy....it felt good.  I ran 16.24 miles in a decent pace.  I did not have time for a long run today like normal Tuesdays.  We have a ton to do today for the wedding so we will be running around doing that.

It was 52 degrees and breezy....a very nice morning.  I ran 15.26 miles with some great miles at a good tempo.  I really opened it up and it felt good.  The cool breeze made it very comfortable.

It was 53 degrees with a breeze again.  The last few days have been very nice.  I ran 12.54 miles nice and easy.  6 of them were with Bob.  I am planning a long run tomorrow.

It was 51 degrees this morning and it felt even cooler on the top of Buckskin.  I picked-up Kory a little after 5:30 and was kinda tired since I only got 5 hours of sleep last night.  We ran the first 22 miles of the marathon course.  Kory and I stayed together the first 16 miles and then he took off to push the last 6.  I was still averaging 7:15 miles and he dropped me like a bad habit the last 5 miles.  I ran 22.04 miles in 2:38 and considering the sleep situation I felt pretty good.
