Had a bunch of activities with the family today so got in a quick run on the TM.  Felt good and ran easy.  Picked up as I went along.

It was a beautiful day today with temp around 55 and some wind.  I felt kind of tired but the pace was pretty good.

It was an amazing day here in Indiana.  Temp was also 60 but it was very windy.  Got to run for the first time in shorts and short sleeves here at home.  I felt pretty good but was a little rough fighting the wind.  Pace was pretty good considering the wind.

It was raining and T-storms this morning so stayed inside on the TM.  I felt ok this morning and just did the usual.  Started off slow to get loose and then picked it up as I went along.  Still trying to work into a consistent routine.  Work has been crazy and stressful but hopefully settling down where I can get some more time.

Pretty nice day today.  It was around 40 but super windy.  I didn't feel the best today.  I just felt sluggish and never really got going.  It was also a struggle battling the wind.  Just glad to get in the some miles today.

Great day out today with temp around 50 and some wind.  I felt sluggish again today.  I wasn't able to run until this afternoon and probably ran too close after lunch so that might have something to do with it.  Pretty good pace considering I didn't feel the best.

Another great spring day.  It was warm around 55 with some wind.  I felt pretty good today and it was just great being outside on such a nice day.  Spring sure puts some energy in my running and want to use this to really get going.

Philadelphia, PA: Traveled up here yesterday early and had a busy day of meetings so didn't get to run.  Today I just ran in the hotel TM since there was not really a good place to run by the hotel.  Either the TM was off or I was really struggling because the pace felt a lot harder than it should have.  It was also very warm in the fitness center so that didn't help.

Awesome day today with temps around 75 and some wind.  This is definitely not normal for this time of the year.  Felt ok today but was still dragging a little.  I just took it easy and tried not to fight the wind too much.  Hoping the weather stays like this for awhile.  Great day.

I wasn't feeling good today and was very busy so just squeezed in a few miles to say I ran.  Not much of a run but glad I got out.

Another unbelievable day in Indiana.  This is the weather we normally have in late May.  I am thankful for it and definitely enjoying it.  Felt pretty good today but ran close to eating so stomach was full.  Just took it real easy and enjoyed being outside on a beautiful day.

Redington Beach, FL: Trying to catch up on my entries and this is about as far back as I can remember.  Went to FL with the family for spring break.  It was a nice morning and just got out for a few miles.

Redington Beach, FL:  Great  morning today.  I ran along the beach today.  The sand was packed very tightly and was a great place to run.  Felt good but ran with a friend at a very easy pace.
