Last run in the sunny & warm land of St George for a while. Went out on the Bear Claw Poppy trail with plans for 7 miles. But miscalculated and ended up needing 10 miles to get back to the condo.

Had a real nice late morning run with Kimi. The hazy sun of SF isn't quite like the St George sunshine I've been enjoying but for January I can't complain. Too bad we need the moisture so bad I hope we get some storms soon!

Six miles in the early morning gunky air with Kimi. Legs felt better than I expected so that was nice. I just really need to do a better job not eating so much junk and work on my winter gut!

Six miles just before lunch in gaggy air. Hope we can get rid of this inversion soon.

14 miles with the lovely and talented Kimi. Dang dogs started barking at 4:50am so we got up and got in 6 miles before meeting up with the SF regulars for 8 more. It was BRRRR cold down in the river bottoms. My nose & cheeks did this weird thing they do sometimes when it's very cold where they go numb and I can't breathe through my nose. It kind of freaks me out and makes me claustrophibic and on the verge of hyperventilating and passing out. Also my face sorta gets frozen in a weird expression so I look like The Joker and I freak everyone else out. Weird stuff, I don't really like it! But on the bright side I got in 48 miles this week, my highest total since before SGM.
