First real winter run of the season. I measured 8 inches of snow on top of my car this morning. We had a busy morning in church with the kiddos singing in both services so I didn't get going on my run until after noon. Ran 11.5 through Sugarhouse and had to endure some heavy eye-stinging pellet snow and high winds. Actually sort of enjoyed it.

A Deseret News photographer took my picture running  in the park and then flagged me down to ask me my name. So If you see a crazy man in the paper running through a blizzard - that's me.

I had to get to the gym early this morning because, if you listen to the Weather Channel, we are about to experience a blizzard that will bring an end to civilization in the Salt Lake Valley. So, I needed to get in a quality workout before that happenes.

1.25 mile warm-up, 8.6 miles in one hour, a little over a mile cool down.

Took a while to get into the run. I have a pretty bad cold.

Cold - 20 degrees and sunny, wind finally stopped after 3 days. So it felt great to be outside.

12.5 miles in 1:39. I felt pretty good today, so it was hard to keep the pace at 8 minutes. But I'm doing a hard 15 tomorrow so I had to.

I had a great run today with Jon Kotter, one of my former runners at Alta who now runs for BYU. Jon is a 28:48 10k guy on the track, so I felt really self conscious about my pathetic pace the entire run. But I'm glad he humored me.

We ended up running 15.5 miles in 1:58:22 (7:38). We meandered up through the University of Utah campus, down along the D-News 10k route into downtown, through the Gateway and then back to my house via Liberty Park.

According to my Garmin I burned 1,777 calories. How many pieces of pumpkin pie is that?

I wanted to do 20 today but questioned my motivation. So I did what I always do in that case and did an out and back run up Emigration Canyon.Once you get 10 miles out, you pretty much have to run 20 right?

Time was 2:33:20. 23 degrees at the start, cloudy.

Hope to devote the rest of the day to football. I'll try to force my kids to watch with me so I can call it family time.
