Rainey Labor day! Was going to head out this morning, but the rain sent me down to the Tm... So I decided to try and get a good run in. Here are the splits: 8:00,  7:53, 7:47, 7:41, 7:30, 7:19, 6:45. Incline 1.0. Legs felt great. Hoping to get some good miles in this month. Maybe sign-up for a race or two.

My afternoon run with the Boothman got foiled, so I decided to get a good run in when I got home. Took the Hwy down to Skyline trail head and North Arm back. Pretty good head wind to the trail head (3.34 miles) My legs were heavier on the way back because of it. (That's my excuse anyways). Splits: 8:08, 8:08, 7:55, 7:48, 8:08, 8:15, 8:04, .55 at 7:27 pace.

A good but hotter bench run today. Meet Chad at Rainbows and headed up and out to the canyon overlook and then took the upper trail to the top. I forgot how much up there is. I started out feeling good, but about 55 mins in I started over heating a bit. Need to keep hitting the trails!

Great early morning run around Eden. Did my 10k loop. It was colder than expected, but nice. Had a good week, look to keep building back up.

Good early evening run. Ran home from my parents place and added a little North Arm on. Was pretty warm when I started, but cooled off about half way into the run.

A great run this evening. Headed out along the North Arm trail. It was a little muddy from this afternoons rain storm, but great as ever. Need to make my way to the Stk Center for my daughters soccer game so, I hit the newly emerged old Hwy that cuts across Pineview when the dam gets low enough. My right leg and foot seem a little tight - never felt in the groove.

Needed to get up early to get a Tm run in. My schedule lately has been crazy!! Started out with a couple 8:00's, then 7:53, 7:47, 7:41 and finished with 6:58. everything felt good. Hopefully will get a good run in tomorrow!

Great early morning run with the Boothman... Shane joined us for the first few miles too. We hit the extended North Arm loop. Took it down past the Skyline trail head about 1/2 mile and then ran it back. We kept it pretty easy the whole way 8:20 ish a mile. My garmin lap memory filled up about 6 miles in so I lost the last 3 mile splits... Great beautiful run!

Great morning Tm run  (if you can have one). Needed to get out before the day started so I hit the Tm. First 2 miles 8:00, 7:53, 7:41, 7:30, 6:55(ish), last .25 at 6:30 pace, then a .25 cool down. Was adjusting the incline up and down throughout the run. Hoping to get a good week in!

Another early morning Tm run. Decided to get up and get it done. First mile 8:00, next two at 7:47, then 7:41, 7:24, 6:53 next .25 at 6:23 pace and then a cool down .25. Left the incline at 1.0 for the run. Felt good after yesterdays run....Hoping for the same result today!

Great moonlight pre sunrise run. Booth and I hit the 10k loop Kept it nice and easy. Time was around 50 mins so, I think that puts us just around 8:00 min avg. Good start to the week for me! Need to make sure I keep it going!!

Nice early evening run. My bro. Anthony and I ran from my house to Valley School. To hit 7 we added on a bit in the town of Huntsville. Running past the Shooting star.... that star burger was smelling good!!!

Another early morning Tm run.. ughhh. I had to motivate myself this morning. I could only manage just over 5. 2 miles at 8:00, 7:53, 7:47 and the last mile is the only one that really counted 7:10. Incline 1.0. It's been a few weeks since I've made it out daily. It's felt good so far. Hoping for a good run tomorrow!

Had a great run with Jamie after Alex's soccer game. We hit the loop. Nice and easy. Had a great week of running. My right leg and foot have been a little tight the last few weeks. I think it helped them out by getting a few extra miles in this week. Will try and have another great week next week!

Early morning Tm run... Cold and dark so, I opted for the cold and dark basement Tm run. I know. 2 miles at 8:00, then hit 7:47, 7:41, 7:30, 7:19, 6:45. Incline set at 1.0. Legs felt good. Let's have a good week!

Nice Ogden bench run after work. Temps were almost perfect. Cloud cover was there, but a little warm. Did the 29th st. loop. I was proud I made it up the big climb without stopping, but paid for it once on top. Took a bit to get the legs going again. Was going to add on past the car, but need to find a pit stop!

On the advice of the Boothman - Did an Awesome Wheelers canyon run with Ice Box, maple, green pond add on loop. The first 3 miles are basically uphill and the last three are down. Awesome temps and the leaves are changing so, it's hard to beat. Ran with my Bro. Anthony.

Sweet, but hot afternoon striders 7! Was hoping for some cloud cover, but not in the cards today. I heard there was around 150 runners. 3:00 pm start time. They bused us up to the top of 29th street and the gun went off. Tried to start off somewhat up front, so I wouldn't get trapped on the single track. First mile was about 8:30 up hill - forgot how much up!! 2nd mile hit a 6:48 way to fast especially because it's rolling and I hadn't hit the down yet and I was starting to feel the heat. 3rd and 4th miles were right around 7:05+-. 5th mile 7:30 started to over heat on the pathway. Only 1 water station. 6th mile 7:44 and starting to fade glad the finish line was in sight. Not sure on the .85 forgot to stop my watch. Tried picking it up though no one passed me on Grant! - A little over heated, but a great race.

They had me AVG 7:17's - I'm happy with that considering the conditions and taking 1st in the 30-39 group! PS. lots of good swag...
