Had to cut this short as I was caught in a thunderstorm... I like rain but running in lighting was not a good idea.

8 min miles- felt sluggish today, not completely sure why! I took miles for my legs to wake up.

Very humid today, totally sapped my strength. I need a better way to hydrate on days like these.

Usually run the morning, but had a running partner so I ran tonight instead. I always think it feels better in the morning since I get a little sluggish in the afternoon if I do not run. I wonder if any other feel that way...

Nice easy run, felt very nice today since the weather has cooled off some and humidity is down.

I wanted to run a 5K a month while I add base miles. Although not spectacular I set me PR and was very happy about that!

Good run today, much of it in the rain. I may ask this on the board, but I ran a 5K last night, so obviously I ran hard. This morning when I ran I felt very good. I would think my legs would be fatigued. I didn't push myself this morning because I didn't think it would be smart, but I am curious why I feel so good after an evening run.

Tired to start my run, picked up nicely. It's great when you run the area so long that you know who has dogs and when they are out :) Of course today I was totally surprised by a little yappy dog that made me jump!  I guess someone got a new dog or they let him out at an unusual time! Talk about throwing off the rhythm... oh well good day anyway.

I am on a short business trip so I went hunting for a place to run. Found a middle school with a track there that was open so I was able to push out 8 miles today. That made me happy as traveling can mess with running schedules. I plan on hitting it tomorrow too. 

I pulled the trigger and bought the Kinvara's. I really like them, they are very light and feel great. It was a tough choice so that means I will likely buy some Boston's in a few weeks!

Hot and humid today, had to gut out some of those miles. Wind felt good at times but was against me for more of the miles. I feel more accomplishment on days like these at times.

Great run. I went a little shorter because of the running team I went with- they run shorter distances and had to con them into more miles :)

It was lightly raining for part of this so I really enjoyed that!

Finally back home. That half was nice, that bad part is its HOT. Heat warnings out for our area. Angel rode her bike and brought water so that was nice. Overall nice strong run.

Up this morning and much cooler :) Good, seemed to get a pain/cramp in my lower left back around 5 1/2 miles but it worked itself out as I kept at it and was gone by mile 7.

Started out a little sluggish today, but eventually got moving through the morning. My wife says it is going to cool down tomorrow.... I am not holding my breath on that one.
