9 miles this morning from Bloomington over into Bloomington Hills. A little chilly this morning. 

Did another 3 miles for the Color Run for Gold Rush. Lots of fun. Happy to see my parents come out and support this.

Long drive last night to Salt Lake. Staying in Murray for a couple days and doing Christmas a little early with my side of the family in Herriman.

Slept in and it actually felt really good. I went from the hotel and caught the Jordan River Trail and took it South. Nice little head wind for pretty much the entire way out. 7 miles out and then 7 miles back. Loved the tail wind on the way back. Blue skies and clear air for this run. Loved looking at the beautiful mountains along with the 48 degree weather. Awesome. 7:16/mile.

Added another mile on the treadmill at the hotel just to cool down the legs. Added some swimming and then 15 minutes of aqua jogging.

15 miles total today. Lots on my mind but very happy today. Today is our 13th Wedding Anniversary! I love Katey so much. She is an amazing women and puts up with a lot from me. I am truly blessed.

Lots of family stuff today so I didn't get out until 4pm. Started at my sister's house in Herriman and went exploring up by the high school. Beautiful with the mountains as the backdrop. Tons of building and growth taking place around there. No wonder they needed another high school. 7:10/mile.

A skif of rain and snow but it "fun" on the trails today. Felt like I was ice skating more than anything. Happy with the effort though. Ran from the hotel and caught the Jordan River Trail again but headed north this time. Lots of fun stuff. Quite a few people on the trail. 25 degrees when I started but it felt much warmer. I was steaming all over and it "frightened" some of the other hotel guests when I got back.

12.5 miles total. 7:26/mile. The pace felt slower because of all the ice. Not a bad way to end the week.

Went for my run at 9am. Absolutely perfect weather. Ran from the house and did my SunRiver loop. I extended out on the dirt where they are starting to develop way too many houses. Might as well run on the dirt while I can. 12.10 miles at 7:21/mile. Good start to the week. Probably will go out for more later.

3 more miles this afternoon with Norah as she rode her bike alongside me. Good times. Short sleeves this afternoon.

Merry Christmas to everyone. Such a fun night and morning with the kids. Fun to see them get so excited. So many blessings right now and much to be grateful for. 

It rained last night and so I waited until it let up a little bit to go out. I ran from the house over to Dixie Drive, up Valley View Drive, back around along the mountain, and then caught the River Trail back home. I did .25 mile pickups for the last 3 miles. 5:15 - 5:30/mile pace. Felt good to get the body moving a little quicker. 7:00/mile total for 11 miles.

Got out when it was a little warmer. 51 degrees. Ran from the house and then caught the River Trail. Got past River Road and then came back. Kept it relaxed and felt great throughout. 7:08/mile overall. I thought it would be a little slower. 12 miles total.

31 degrees this morning. Did the SunRiver loop backwards. 7:26/mile. Warmed up quick. Probably will do a small workout later.

Took Oliver up to the high school to do a workout. He rode his bike while I warmed up two miles and then he rode his new skateboard around while I started 800s. I ran 2:41 for my first one (windy and cold) and he said he needed to go number two and I didn't have a key to the school. Had to hurry home so we didn't have an accident. Bummer!
