Good morning! Planning 7 if I can get out today. we had an ice storm with more on the way.
qotd: What is strange about your weather this weekend?
Good morning-- Got in just under 4 miles yesterday at the beach. The kiddos and I went biking while DH was kitesurfing. It was a glorious day so the qotd is timely....
qotd: 70s and sunny here. I'll take it since I need to do some garden work before winter sets in. Well, 'winter' as it is in the mid-atlantic region.
Morning! About to head out for about 10. I haven't run double digits in over a month (!!)
QOTD: It's 70 and humid here. For running, I'd prefer the cold. Can't really breathe in this weather w/ asthma.

Hyner 50k: 4/18/15
Laurel Highlands 70M: 6/13/15
10 gritty miles this morning. Saw lots of birds today, they must all be down here because of that crazy weather up north. Lots of pelicans, cormorants, herons, even heard a woodpecker and an owl this morning.
qotd: yesterday in the 70's, today in the 50's, tomorrow in the 30's. Yup, winter in TX, nothin' strange about that. We did have a few thunderstorms go thru yesterday with about 3 to 4 inches of rain.
Grindstone 100 mile, Oct 7
Got out early to try and beat the heavy rain, but about 300 yards from my house, FLASH - BOOM, a thunderstorm popped up. I turned around and ended up doing 7.5 on the treadmill. I can deal with rain, but lightning is a different story.
QOTD: See above. All the snow melted overnight and it's warm today, but chance of snow on Tuesday.
I ran down to the gym, 6 miles, then did a core workout. I'm trying to get back in shape and it's going to require more than just running.
I might go grab some trail miles in a little bit. Depends on what Jo wants to do today.
QOTD: We're having very typical Utah winter weather.
running under the BigSky
Going to try and get in 8-10 miles this morning, got another couple of inches of snow which is helpful as the trails were getting awfully packed and icy
qotd: my plan yesterday was to get in a 18-20 mile run, it was dead calm when I left, an hour later on top of the ridge the wind was howling at close to 35 mph w/ dark clouds rolling in fast- I exited stage left and ended up w/ ~ 11 miles; of course later in the afternoon the sun came out and the wind died down- as the old saying goes if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes
“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”
Laying low for now as our snowstorm is winding to an end. Not much to crow about as I think it will only be about 7" once it stops. I'm sure we will get the usual arctic air rolling in the next few days as a final kick to the groin. I know, embrace it and smile.
Did get in 14.5 yesterday on icy roads and it went real good, Today I'll do about 5 after I watch a bunch of football.
QOTD- Nothing strange, just normal winter weather here.
14 trail miles this morning, trail conditions were radically different than they were
three days ago....
QOTD: On Tues I did a trail run in the snow, temps in teens-today all snow was gone
an temp were 60's. Weird.
No run today. Sunday is brunch day at a local place that is AWESOME. The routine is sleep in. Cup of coffee at home. Awesome Brunch. Work.
QOTD: Lots of rain while snow is still on the ground. Not too weird for around here, but still weird to me.
Are we there yet?
Finally broke through a mental barrier I had when I approached 13 miles. Ran 15.1 in 63F temps.
QOTD: I think the old record high had already been broken when I ran this morning and temps are supposed to reach 72F today.
Also noted that's a weird way to spell weird.
2016 Goals: Exceed 100K in a 24-Hour race, run more trail races (2 currently scheduled)
