Steady run, with only 2 other runners and 1 slow biker on the bike path. I did see 8 deer though. Totally graceful in how they leapt through the woods. I thought about racing them, but with the whole family there I did not want to embarrass them. &nbsp;14, a few fast, last mile 6:47&nbsp;into the wind.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 04 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Mar 03, 2017 <p>Back home and rested again. Lots of travel and happy to be home... although.... that means cold still. 29&ordm; w/ 19&ordm; WC that &nbsp;was brisk.</p> <p>Not many people on the bike path today at all. Only 3 runners and a few dog walkers. No bikers, but that is to be expected.&nbsp;</p> <p>10 Miles. 4 steady and then 11x30s striders. The first few were steady and then I let it loose best I could.

From Sunny warm flat land to 25&ordm; WC, &nbsp;heavy snow flurries in a 25 mph wind with hills. Loving it. Reading Born to Run and had a great vacation. Tom is a great guy to run with and will even narrate the surroundings like Morgan Freeman.&nbsp;</p> <p>The vacation did me good as I had a decent run and just went out to have fun. Depsite the non favorable conditions I had about 4 MP miles including a 7:12 into the wind without it seeming like I was pushing it. That made me smile.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 25 Feb 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Feb 22, 2017 <p>Heavy rain for the first half mile and then sun came out. Last day in Siesta and then driving home tomorrow. 2 MP miles, 8:05 ap. I will miss waking up late and flat running land :)&nbsp;</p> Wed, 22 Feb 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Feb 21, 2017 <p>Slept in from yesterday. 70&ordm;, which is warm for me. Ended with MP miles and ran up beach road and back. &nbsp;</p> Tue, 21 Feb 2017 07:00:00
