Cold, snowy and windy out today so stayed inside on the TM.  Felt pretty good running and gradually picked up the pace the whole way. Really need to get into a better routine and get back to being consistent.

Cool (28), windy and snowy today but was able to get outside.  It was nice to get out even though it was not the best day.  I felt good and running was pretty easy.  Since it was cool I started off faster then normal to get warm and pretty much kept that same pace throughout.

Warmer today (32) and just light wind so felt really nice out.  Felt good running but trying to ease back into a full time schedule so keeping the miles low.  Just want to get back to running every day then build from there.

It was super windy out today (25-35mph) and I didn't feel like battling he wind so I stayed inside on the TM.  Started out easy and felt pretty good.  Decided to pick it up and ran the last two miles at MP (around 7:00). Nice run.

It was nice out today with temp around 35 and light wind.  Felt pretty good today and just ran easy.  I had actually wanted to run slower but just kind of ran by feel.

It was a pretty nice day out for the middle of Feb.  Temp around 30 with light wind.  Felt good again today but just tried to keep it easy.  Feeling good just getting back in the normal routine and hope to keep it going.

It was a little cool (28) this morning but otherwise pretty good day for running.  I was a little tired and sluggish this morning running but seemed to get better as I went along.  Started off easy and tired to keep it easy the whole way.

Was at the girls show choir competition all day yesterday so didn't get to run so decided to sneak in a few miles today.  It was a nice day.  Temp around 30 with light wind but it was sunny which made it feel nice.  Felt pretty good and was glad to get outside and enjoy the sunshine.

Honolulu, HI:  I flew out yesterday and planned to run when I got in but my flight was delayed 5 hours so was late when I got in and didn't run.

I got out early this morning and it was nice other that being very windy.  It was a nice run and felt pretty good.  Ran up and around Diamond Head.  It was nice to be running this route again.  Last time I was here I was injuried so didn't get to run.  Glad to be back.

Honolulu, HI:  Out early again this morning.  Nice day since the wind was not as bad as yesterday but it did rain on me some of the way.  Ran up around Diamond Head again.  Felt good but just kept it easy.   Nice to be able to get some hills in my runs and definitely felt it going up.

Honolulu, HI:  It was rainy this morning but nice otherwise. I felt pretty good but just ran easy.  Had some meetings early so cut the mileage short. Looking forward to heading back later today.

Philadelphia, PA:  Flew up early this morning so had to run after meetings and before dinner.  Was able to get in 5 miles.  Felt sluggish and tired today.  Could be from a lot of travel lately.  Glad to get in a few miles.
