It was 12 degrees this morning with light winds towards the end of my run.  I had to wear all the normal winter gear and when I got home I had ice build-up on my neck warmer.  Yep....it's looking like winter running already.  I ran 8.53 miles slow but only had a few icy spots left over from Saturday's snow.

Saucony Omni 7 Miles: 8.53

It was 17 degrees this morning but it felt warmer than that except when the wind was in your face.  I ran 8.56 miles easy.  I saw Kory this morning and he looked like he was going too fast for me so I did not turn and run with him, I just said hi.  When I was finishing my run I scared up 6-7 pheasants in the field by my house.
