Took care of sick people all day. Finished off the year with a big fat 0 miles. 

Looking back on the year I am happy to have been able to run still while in graduate school. Life has been extra busy in 2012 with the addition of a new baby, new responsibilities, and everything else that goes on in life. 

Got 2 solid 50 mile races in this summer and happy with the results. Looking forward to being done with graduate school in May and then back to training.

Spent the new year at a masquerade ball. Interesting people there. Woke up for my last day in the frozen tundra often called Logan, Utah. I ran from the Holiday Inn Express in North Logan, went out towards the airport, ran along 1000 west, along the highway, into Providence and then Fruit Heights, through the university and back to my in-laws. Great way to start off the year. Just under 7:30/mile overall.

Back in the warmer weather now. Ran after school and did my Bloomington Loop route. Nice 10 miles and then did a little on the track to get 12 total.

Same route as yesterday but did it the opposite direction. The afternoons are great right now.

Ran up and back along the marathon course with Steve and Dave today. It was extremely cold this morning. Solid pace going up and was very happy to turn around. Dave wanted to tempo back so I told myself I wanted to do at least 5 miles worth of tempo since I did not want to overdo it. Felt pretty good on the tempo miles and then just put it in cruise control for the rest of the run. Solid way to end the week. I think I can occasionally get some faster miles in every now and then during the spring until graduate school is done. Should be good.

Happy to still hit 70+ on only 5 days of running.
