It was another warm morning in Sandy, but who cares....I slep in and decided it was a good day for a rest. So no mileage today. Next run - friday morning.

 

Virtually nothing comes out right the first time. Failures, repeated faliures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. The only time you don't want to fail is the last time you try something...One fails forward toward success.

It's been a pretty good week for early morning running. The temps have been fairly cool with no rain, wind, dogs and very few vehicles on the road to contend with.

got up and out the door at 5am and got in a 17 miler. Sure was hot and muggy this morning. At least the sun was filtered with the clouds as it came up. At the end of my run I stopped at Draper Park and watched as they finished the Draper Days 5K Dash. I forgot all about this race this year, guess I'll have to put it on the calendar for next year. They looked like they were having a great time.

I took today off from running for a well deserved break from Saturdays over heated run. Although I never felt like I was under hydrated I sure did feel the heat.......

This mornings 3:30a run was much better even though it was 70+ degrees out there. Hey everybody, were in the dog days of summer and we need to pay attention to our hydration and salt intake. Pack it or stash it but get that water out there on your runs and get it in you on all your runs no matter how short or long!!!!
