It was 37 degrees with winds 15-20mph this morning.  It was also raining lightly when I left the house.  I ran 3 miles before our group run.  By the end of the group run it was a rain/snow mix.  Barry and Chad wanted to run the trail up the hill from Satterfield after the group left.  We headed up the hill and it was a muddy mess.  By the time we got to the top it was snowing pretty hard!  We headed back down the trail carefully as it was getting pretty slick from the mud.  After that I ran a couple with Chad and then headed home.  Total 10.11 miles.  I was wet and cold when I got home.

It was 36 degrees but no wind or rain so it was a nice morning.  I ran 3 miles before meeting with our group.  The we ran the group on the golf course to get some beginning hill work in with them.  The Barry, Chad, and I ran across Satterfield and turned down our normal route.  When we started down the loops, I picked up the pace a bit but today they held back.  So I did 3 tempo miles on my own before meeting up with them at the end of our normal run.  Then we ran 2 cool down miles.  Total 10.13 miles.  Legs are feeling pretty good for Ogden in 10 days!

It was 42 degrees and calm this morning.  Another great day.  I ran 3 before meeting with the group.  We had about 15 this morning because the high school runners are at district track or tennis.  I ran a few with Barry and Chad after the group run and then finished on my own.  Total 10.27 miles.
