Good old Sugar Creek Trails. Early in the year these made me want to puke as I was getting back into shape. Now I could have run multiple loops if I had the time.

49 with a cool wind. After 95 all last week I was chilled, but seriously NO COMPLAINTS. Slow run, as planned. Trying to do some intervals tomorrow. Hope to have some energy.

56 degress and heaviest rain I have ran through in a LONG time. I am not sure if it's from the hurricane I ran from in Mexico telling me 'nice try'. 

I also figure if Joe can have  a 'classic' run so can I :) 

Today I ran the classic... 10 mile warm up and then intervals. 6x1/2mile @ 7:05ish pace w/2 min recoveries. I no where near I was a few years ago, but I am giving it effort... or at least my body tells me I am.

Nice crisp 47 degree run. Very windy, but overall a good day for a run. Quite a few runners out this morning. Saw a few Boston shirts and more than a few seemed to be moving briskly. The Indy marathon is next week and only 2 hours from me so I was wondering if some might be running that. I am still trying to pick my first marathon back. I know I should just run it, but I want to at least give a good showing. One in VA 3 weeks from now looks nice as does one in Delware in December. I'll ponder. Maybe 2016. 

Roughly 6 miles at MP. What was encouraging was a few of those miles did not see to take much effort. Sure hope that trend continues. 8:38/Avg Pace,
