Easy run around Sugarhouse and up to Foothill. Cold, feels like snow but it isn't.

I'm having waffles with blackberries now and a cup of coffee. Heading to church in an hour where the kids are practicing for the Christmas program. Andy is an elf. There shouldn't be elves in a church Christmas program should there? Let's see, there was baby Jesus, Joseph, Mary, the Three Wise Men, barn animals, maybe a little drummer boy. Nope, no elf.

11.5 on the treadmill at the Sandy 24 Hour Fitness. The Sandy 24 Hour Fitness is totally different from the Sugarhouse 24 Hour fitness. It has Lifefitness Treadmills which is better. The treadmills mostly work. There is more space between each treadmill so you don't feel like you are running on top of the person next to you. The whole gym is bigger with about one tenth of the people. The locker room is spacious.

Did most of the run above 9 mph with the last mile in 5:56.

Now I'm home with the family and positively giddy about the new Hawaii Five-0 on tonight!

Unplanned day off. Ate a lot of cherry pie though.

I took a personal day at work today so that I could go to Andy's "Holiday" program at school. Based on the songs they sang I would say that holiday is Christmas. Of course with all kindergarten programs it was off the scale on the cuteness meter.

Still left me with plenty of time to get in a noon run at Liberty Park. My legs appreciated the soft path. 13.25 miles averaging 7:20 pace. Perfect sunny day.

One mile at lunch plus weights/strength training. Hopefully I'll get a run in later.

 Just did an easy five around the neighborhood this evening. Ran into Jake K on his run home from work and we ran together for a little over a mile.

Meeting a group on the JRP tomorrow for 12-14 miles then breakfast at Over the Counter.

13 miles averaging 7:17 along the JRP with a good group of folks. This sport is almost always better in groups!

Sore all over from the weights yesterday. 

Great breakfast after at the Over the Counter Cafe.
