Started the run at 2:00 pm which had me a bit concerned because I didn't eat much beforehard.  The run ended up being one of my more effortless runs.  The pace was on the slow side (8:30 - 9:00) but still a decent effort.

Nice head clearing run to Elephant Rock.  There is more snow on the trail than I expected but it is still runnable.

Met Tara at Davis Blvd.  I was not expecting the snow so I only wore shorts and a long sleeve shirt.  Luckily I had an extra jacket and gloves in my car.  Run felt good only because Tara was willing to run slow.

Met Tara at 5:30 for a run on the LPT to Farmington and back.  Still a little chilly but decent running weather.  Felt good for most of the run.  Miles 11 and 12 were a bit of a struggle.  Fortunately, this was the time that Tara was explaining Maslow's heirarchy of needs (can't remember what she called it but pretty sure this is the same thing) so all I had to do was listen and try to put one foot in front of the other.  Averaged 8:03/mile according to her watch.  We discovered that my Garmin has a hard time with the tunnel which causes me to lose time and distance.  I lose more time than distance so my average pace is a few seconds faster than reality.

Woke up early and was able to convince myself to get out the door instead of laying around like I have been lately.  Just a nice lazy run on one of my old regular loops.  Legs felt dead for the first half then started to wake up towards the end. 

I'm now two weeks with no soda.  I didn't expect immediate results but the belly fat seems to be getting worse.  I think I have been over-compensating the loss of sugar from the soda with too many treats.  I do feel better despite the Budha belly.

Ran from home to the Temple and back again with Becky.  Good effort going up.  More relaxed coming down.  There was a quarter mile stretch going up that I wasn't sure that I was going to be able to keep up with her.  I eventually relaxed and the rest of the run felt a lot better.  I think it was just my body getting used to the uphill (haven't done it in quite awhile).

Regular 8 mile loop. Felt sluggish and slow for the first half.  Legs felt dead for some reason.  Second half felt a lot better.

Ran with Becky on her last 20 miler as she is preparing for Boston.  Started off running 2.5 miles to the LPT Pages Lane trailhead to meet Tara and Kam.  Ran alnong the LPT then connected to the rail trail.  Even though it is only 1/4 mile from the LPT it felt nice to be running somewhere other than the same old route.  The wind was at our back on the way out which made coming back tough.  We averaged 8:50/mile for the run.  I felt good the entire way.  Really not sure how I am able to run 20 milers right now since my running has been all over the place.
