Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

10 miles at 8 pm in Logan.  First 6 miles at 7:30 pace, then 2 at 6:45 pace, slowed a bit, then did 0.3 mile at 5 min pace just for fun, then a cool down.  Finished up 10 miles total in 1:13.

It's a good thing I don't have the sleep tracker on my blog- I have only had more than 5 hours of sleep once in the past 5 nights.  I am starting to feel a bit better from the bad cold I had for the past week or so, though I am still real stuffed up and a bit sluggish.  I'll be happy when it is gone.

7 miles with the snow steadily falling and about 3 inches of new stuff already down.  Planetwalk is now runnable, with the fresh powder providing acceptable traction over the old ice (at least until the snow compacts and turns to ice again).  And, running with my cold in the cold cleared out my sinuses- I blew the biggest farmer blow of my life.  Awesome.

I finally got home from my day at about 9 pm.  I really really, really, really did not feel like going running in the dark, on very snowy and icy roads, in the single digit temperature (0 deg windchill).  I eventually put on an extra long sleeve shirt so at least I would stay warm (it's easier to go out in the cold if you know you will stay somewhat warm).  Did 6 miles at about 7:30 pace- not too bad supposing it was icy and dark and I really couldn't see where I was going (no moon).  I was glad I went, though, but I sure hope the running gods noticed my dedication tonight.  Especially that I gave up precious time with my wife and two kids.

From my house to the canal (7:45 pace), then along the very snowy canal (~9:30 pace), through the island, up cliffside, and home through River Heights.  8.5 miles in the dark, felt better than yesterday.  It would be nice to be able to run on dry, non-slippery roads sometime.  Running faster than 7:30 pace would be a lot easier.

Finally had time to run at 11 pm.  I have had runs this week at 8 pm, 7 pm, 9:30 pm, and 11 pm.  Not because I want to, but because that is the first opportunity.  Take what you can get, I guess.  Marci and I are getting ready to sell our house and buy a new one, so we have been meeting with realtors and looking at houses all week.  Stressful and very time consuming.

Anyways, easy 4.5 miles in the lightly falling snow.  Very little traffic- probably cause it is a snowy night in Logan at 11 pm.  Felt relaxed and good.  No watch, but felt around 7:30 pace.   It was a very warm 26 degrees out, probably the warmest run in a while.  Felt good to not be so cold.

Family in town but it's NFL playoffs week.  Plus Marci and I don't have a TV.  So what is a football fan to do???  For probably the first time in my life, I chose to not run outside on a pretty nice day (stiffing Cody in the process) and ran at the rec center on the treadmills instead.  The start of my run just happened to coincide with kickoff. I was able to watch all the way until 10 minutes left in the Packers-Seahawks game.  I was happy to see the Packers play great.  I would love to see a Packers-Colts Superbowl, with the Pack pulling it out.  I really don't want to see NE win it all.  The run was fine- definitely the longest and quickest treadmill run of my life.  First 8-10 miles at sub-7:30 pace.  Then I figured out that the slower I ran, the more I could watch, so I slowed down to 8:00 pace.  Did a 1/2 mile towards the end at 6:30 pace.  Felt pretty good, though I wanted a nap afterwards.  Considered running another 20 miles or so so I could watch the Jag-Pats game, but decided I better call it a day and not risk injury.
