Got out around 1:00 pm for a run on the Legacy Parkway Trail (LPT). Light snow, overcast sky, 36 degrees. Long pants, short sleeves under long sleeves, gloves, hat. I felt over dressed but was thankful for the apparel after the breezes started picking up around mile six.

A really good run for me, Good pace. Felt energetic throughout the run. Legs started to get  a little crampy on the last mile or so.

Ran south on the cattle rd 2 miles where I linked up to the LPT and continued south, then did a 180 and headed back north on the LPT till around 7 miles where I dismounted off the LPT and ran west down Glovers Lane to the cattle rd where my car was waiting, silently for me.

All around felt good. My right IT band flared up yesterday, but it behaved today. Perfect weather with sunshine and low 50's.

Six and a half hillacious miles this morning on the fire break road. Clear skies, 40 degrees. Long sleeves, shorts, gloves and hat.

Rare sighting of another runner out there, I saw her last week too. In the ten years or so that I've been either hiking, running or biking on the fire break road, I can probably count on one hand the number of other runners I've seen there. So it's always cool to see another.

Started early this morning, ran from the house to LPT out and back then back home. The machine worked well this morning. The moon played the role of mother natures' headlamp...batteries included.

Very easy run with the dogs, on leash, around the hood/jr high field. Running with two dogs on leashes is kind of un-fun. Dropped the dogs off at home after 4.5 miles and ran free to 6.25.

And so ends another week of running with James in Funkytown, USA.
