First run of 2015 was short, easy, and uneventful. Also about 60 degrees colder than my last run of 2014. I felt good though. Ran a little bit with Andy who wants to run the SLTC 5K at the end of the month.

Observation. I ran the first couple miles of my run today in a pair of Saucony Ride 6's. I thought my toes were frostbitten they were so cold. Went home and changed into a pair of Asics Gel Cumulus and my toes were warm and toasty the rest of the way. I was looking at the upper in the forefoot of my Saucony's and there's basically nothing there. Very ventillated! 

I was wondering if they make winter and summer versions?

I'm happy with the results of both football games last night.

I was rooting against FSU and Alabama, too. I think much of the country was. Just wish the games didn't run past midnight

One of the benefits of living in the Mountain Time Zone as I'm sure you remember.
