...and december comes roaring in... 

8 miles. JAJA run. the wind this morning was comical. there is no other way to describe it. there were some gusts that were so strong that we were literally blown sideways -- andrea almost went off into the road at one point. i was wearing two beanies to protect myself from the weather, but the wind only mocked me by stealing both of them. i spent the whole second half of the run trying not to trip or choke because my hair was swirling in my eyes and mouth. now it's in one giant knot. sounds fun, right?  i still have a few leaf particles in my eye. 

wind victims: garbage cans, garbage bags, garbage, fence panels, a rain gutter, a large plastic jug, a metal sign, countless tree branches (some were huge), lawn chairs, a cat, two beanies, and my race bib# from last week's turkey trot.

8 miles, blithely. sunnyside up. calm and cold this morning. i had to hurdle over several downed tree branches, and i passed three houses that had their fences completely ripped apart. i could even hear chainsaws roaring at 4:30am. that was quite the windstorm that blew through yesterday -- so much damage, especially in davis county. i hope everyone out there stayed safe.

11 miles on the JRP with james, rob, andrea, jake, bryan, and emily. the trail had a very light layer of snow on it, but luckily it wasn't too slippery. i couldn't even ski-slide. james wore his pirate pants. great run on a lovely and cold december morning.

8 miles. sunnyside swirlwind.

it was another windy morning out, but this time it was combined with bitter cold air. the headwind was fairly strong running up sunnyside, and the constant blasting of cold air was giving me brain freeze.

8 mile JAJA run. this included a visit to christmas street, but unfortunately most of the lights and inflatables were shut off at that hour.

 i was overdressed this morning -- i layered up for sub-20 but it was actually closer to 30 degrees. it was nice to finish up the run feeling warm instead of numb.

13 miles on the JRP. fun and big group this morning -- chad, adam, jake, andrea, james, rob, kam, kelli and scott. i had a nice time chatting with scott for a good portion of the run. i didn't even say hi to kelli or kam (sorry) -- so it goes when there is a big group.

it was very cold until the sun came out, then it became quite pleasant. the river was steaming. the ground was covered in frost. andrea was playing with the geese. it was a perfect winter scene. 

off to work all day and night.

8 miles, JAJA style. usual route through sugarhouse, with a few new surprises and one spooky lane. lest i be too productive at work, i started my day by creating a map of our run:

14 miles with james on my favorite convoluted millcreek loop. we went out early because james had to catch a flight, so no group run for us this morning. it was still dark at 7:30am!

5 miles. liberty park loops. i live a tomato's throw from the park, but i rarely run there anymore because i don't like it in the dark if james isn't with me. it was nice, but i wasn't really feeling it today. i'm also very busy with a few big projects, so i kept it short and easy, just like my pancakes and eggs.
