10 miles in St. George again. It is good to be home. I have had a little bit of congestion the last couple days so I was hacking that up for most of the run. 6:41/mile. Suprised I went that quick to start the week.

Did the same loop as last week when I did it with Hayden. I ran with no watch today and just enjoyed it. Temps were around 25 degrees. Got some funny looks and comments from people as I ran by them due to me just wearing short shorts and they were dressed like it was the frozen tundra. 13.5 miles total.

8 easy miles while Norah rode her new bike alongside me. No watch and just enjoyed spending time with her being a Dad. Excited to get back to a routine. Body was tired today so I didn't go as far.

Decided to end the year on a positive note. Ran from my house in Ivins to my parent's house in Little Valley. 16 total miles at 6:55/mile. Only got yelled at by one short, squatty kid with a Dodgers hat. "Run faster and try and catch us." I caught up to the car at the stop light and then he didn't know what to say. Also almost got hit by a lady texting while driving. Everyone, please put down your cell phones while in a vehicle. It is not worth it.

Excited for 2016!

12 total miles to start 2016. Ran with Steve and Haydo on the Chuckwalla trail all the way into Snow Canyon. I have never done the full trail so it was a lot of fun. Pushed it on the way back and then tacked on 2 more miles going up the marathon course. Good start to the year.

Had a lot going on today so I didn't get out until 3pm. I ran from the house and went and did the Barrel Roll loop. It was perfect weather and just what I needed to end the week. Excited to get a solid 4-5 weeks of running under my belt. I am ready to get going again. 13 miles total.

On a side note I only got whistled at by one guy today. Thankful it wasn't more.
