Just get back in shape after slacking hard in 2017.

Maybe run another marathon later in the year.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Maybe run a Marathon once in a while....but I am not in that competitive mode anymore.

It was 33 degrees with some wind this morning.  Not too bad considering it's the first week of January.  I ran 6.41 easy miles after not feeling very good yesterday (headache, chills, etc).

It was weird this morning.  The official temperature at the airport was 19 degrees, but my back yard thermometer said 42, so I wasn't sure how to dress.  Luckily I dressed for about 25 which turned out to be good.  It was really windy when I started and I ran the entire length of Fairway to get some nice rolling hills.  I caught up to Bob as I ran up Satterfield Hill after I had run a bit over 3 miles.  We ran together the rest of the time and even ran the trails above the neighborhood.  As we were coming down the dirt road that comes down to Chubbuck Road, we found the COLD air.  It dropped probably 20 degrees in the span of a quarter of a mile.  It definitely felt around 20 degrees.  With the wind it was even colder.  I ran 6.78 easy, hilly miles.

It was 24 degrees with a wind chill of 15...but it was actually bearable most of the time.  I ran the Fairway hilly loop again before I ran up Satterfield.  Then I hit the trails before coming back down to my house.  Total 7.12 miles.  Hills are a big part of my new strategy for 2012.

It was 25 degrees this morning, but the very high humidity and wind made it feel colder, especially going in to the wind.  I ran around the fairgrounds before doing the entire length of Fairway for the nice, rolling hills.  Then I ran up Satterfield hill before hitting the trails up above that.  Total 9.03 miles.  

Mizuno Nexus 5 Miles: 9.03
