It was 68 degrees and a bit muggy and smokey this morning.  I ran a couple miles before our group run, then ran another 5 with Barry before running home.  Total 7.91 miles.

It was 58 degrees this morning.  When I started my Garmin it said "battery low".  I know I put it in the charger, hopefully I just did it wrong and it is not going bad.  Needless to say it died halfway through my run.  I ran approximately 8 miles.

Brooks Trance 5 Miles: 8.00

It was 68 degrees and overcast this morning.  I ran 10.32 easy miles so I can save some for the butt-kicking Kory and Penny will give me tomorrow.

I met Kory, Shannon, and Keaton at Century at 5:30 and we drove up to the top of Buckskin.  It was in the low 60's with a good breeze.  We even got rained on pretty hard coming out of Inkom for about a mile and it was great.  I ran 20.02 easy miles, mostly with Shannon.  I didn't want to push it too hard with Park City next week.
