Decent morning, a little humid. Been a long work week -but at least that is out of the way. Looking forward to the 4th!

Nice morning temp of 60 and modest humditiy lended toward a nice run. I bet you I saw at least 25 rabbits on the trail. There was a decent amount of people running today too. Always that way this time a year as people are ramping up to run the air force marathon. 

Have a great 4th! Read the Declaration of Independence!

A bit humid today, but overall a good run. Been a long week of work - I think it is effecting my runs. Looking forward to relaxing on Saturday.

Humid run today and not much in the legs, I think its a toll from the busy week. I did however see 2 baby deer with a doe. They truly are beautiful and graceful - and taste good too.

Decent run this moring despite the 100% Humidity/65DP/65 Degrees. Not overbearing heat or anything, just wet. Ran a newer part of the bike trails today. Lots of nice people out. Passed by one running couple. Anyone else feel the urge to race people when that happens? I am the one who usually passes people and yet I dont think anything about it, but when I was passed I suddenly felt like today was a good day for speed training :) 

Tropical Smootie Cafe after. Health nut smootie. Yum!

Stopped at a pretty sweet park in Indiana. Needed a break from the drive. Hot/Humid.

Another new park in Indiana. Some goof balls here, but decent place to get a run in.

Warm/humid morning, but good run back home. Threw in some strides for the first time this year trying to test the injury recovery another step. I feel fine. 

Heading to a Boston and surrounding area on a history trip Sunday, going for a week. Love history, hate Mass- My CCW doesn't work in those states and it's rather annoying.

76, 80%. 70DP- however, it did not feel too bad this morning. Kinda odd since we are under a heat advisory until 9pm. 

Deer, bunnies and LOTS of nice bikers on the path today. I am a little annoyed that I keep staining running shirts. The body glide seems to stick to my shirts and set in. I don't even put them in the dryer. Oh well. After the run I did a few hours of mowing and yard work. I think I sweat more doing the yard work. Tropical smoothie seems to make up for it though.

Back from Boston- History trip. Fantasic! I will post some pictures when I get caught up. The only negative was it was so busy and fast paced that I missed 4 days of runs. I ran trials and lots of hills today. I figured I needed the push.

Heating up and heavy air. Good to be running the bike path near home again, but my legs are still heavy from the trip. 

What is even more fatiguing is time back at work. I wonder if IJR has figured out how to skip time ahead yet.

New shoes. Kinvara 5's on sale. There is a nice feeling breaking in new shoes! Warm today, but humidity is shockingly low for Ohio. 44%, I'll take that!! 

That first week back to work after vacation is a killer. It's like you need a vacation from the vacation. 6 Miles.
