    5.9 miles this morning in our heat wave - it had warmed up to 0º!

    But then when I left for work I saw that the temps were back down to -4º. :freeze:

    5.9 miles last night. iPod shuffle was dead, headlamp needed new batteries, and my motivation was wearing thin...but I got out there which was needed for some me time.

    That's great! I've stopped/started numerous times for many different reasons. Starting back up can be a struggle but once you get the routine going again it will better. Keep it going!

    Had an old boss tell me she started up running and ran 5 miles the previous evening since she knew I ran. Then for the next 5 days I heard complaints as to how I can run so long and not be so sore. Building up has its advantages to stave off soreness and injury.

    As for last night I got in another 5.9 miles. By the end I was regretting my decision for tights and should have gone with shorts as I was too warm. Capped it off with some ice cream and warm brownies.

    Does anything beat brownie and ice cream after a run?

    I just finished 18.1 miles on a lovely NorCal evening. Here's a pic taken at mile 17.5.

    5 miles after work today. I usually run in the morning but didn't get up early enough today. It's such a different experience compared to running early in the morning.

    I'm a morning runner also but every so often I have to run in the evening. Definitely a whole different experience. But I always seem to enjoy the morning better than the evening runs.

    22 for me today. It was going to be longer, but I cut it short because I don't need to rip open a blister (one formed on the side of the second toe on my right foot) this close to my race. 21 days to go!

    First run since last Saturday and ran the same route (with less dilly dallying). 13 miles. I need to be better about running more and drinking less when I travel for work :/

    Really good 8 miles this morning. Weather is perfect out, sunny but not too hot and not too cold. Broke in a new pair of sneakers. I had been using the Brooks Glycerin 10 for about 16 months, which is probably about 6 months too long. Picked up the Glycerin 11 yesterday and used them for the first time today. They felt pretty identical to the 10's, so I'm sure I'll be using these until I wear them out.

    First time 5 km running with "only" :) two walks in between (2 and 3 minutes). (Total: 37 minutes.)

    The shoes (and me) have done about 100 miles now.

    How many miles did you put on your last pair? What's your normal replacement interval?
