Just realized the 10:34 is a false read. Treadmill reported my running 3.06 miles, but the app recorded 3.77 miles in the same amount of time, so my actual run was slower than 10:34 min/mi. The Stride Sensor has a calibration factor which I've gotten close, but obviously not spot on ;)

I did another 2.6 miles last night. Felt pretty good. It was chilly and dark. I miss the moon.

I've been such a slug this week, school semester is winding down so things are starting to pile up.. :facepalm: I really don't consider that an excuse.. I can at least run out for half an hour but I've just been a slouch..

Ankle and both knees straight out balked the last time I went out. The wife and I are going shoe shopping next week.

Super fun... there was no snow on the streets... just dry pavement. Temp was in the mid 30s at the start with plenty of sun. I overdressed a bit cuz it looked so chilly with snow on the grass. 3-dot and I ran together. First race we've run all the way together. She out kicked me at the finish, I didn't have it in me to race her to the line. 2-dot crushed the rest of the family... fished about 6 minutes in front of 3-dot and me. 1-dot, Jack-Jack and Mrs. JB finished behind us. Saw lots of friends after the race. Then headed home. Great way to start a great day.

10 miles yesterday afternoon. The last two were pretty rough, I think I hadn't eaten enough earlier to sustain the run... have to work on that.

Heading out for a lunch time run soon... 24°F Feels Like 12°... I know it's not as cold here as where some you are... but it's cold enough.

"Currently the National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory for the Maryland/DC/Virginia area until 8 am Thursday 8 January 2015.

A wind chill advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in frost bite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outdoors, make sure you wear a hat and gloves."

Hat and gloves... check.
