Guilted into another run on the trail because I wont be able to run for a few days and want to keep the miles up.  This was a beautiful view run along the pipeline trail from church fork to the city overlook.  Was great scenery and views but the big glass of OJ and bowl of raisin bran pre run was a bad idea.  first mile up was slow walk and jog 12 minutes rest between 8:30 and 9:00

Couldnt sleep this fine morning so went on jaunt through the misty neighborhood streets around Holliday at 6am.  Nobody else out strangely.  Was nice to stretch the legs before busting on a trip to Hawaii.  right butt cheek starting to hurt again.  not sure what brings this on.  Mozzer, your Yazmin Bleeth is in the mail.

Great to be living in Hawaii for a few days.  Did an early am trail run with Brother Nick around the Keana State park point on the tip of the West Coast and around to the North Shore side.  the run was coastline with great views out over the ocean and inland mountain range.  The area we were in is apparently the highest area for car breakins, and there are miles of shanty town homeless along the beaches leading up to the area.

I call this the poison gas run because we got into some chemical plant trail run near the hotel where the air smelled and tasted like death was coming. Then had a nice run up the frontage of the beach amidst the palms and ocean. Nice. avg 8:45 or so.

How great is Hawaii?  Ran the Aiea Loop trail with the brother.  Fantastic and beautiful trail and jungle and spectacular views.  Almost lost Nick over the side again.  Mozzer, next time you need to be here.  Had some decent ups and downs.  Sweating like a pig.  Actually the terrain made you feel like you were running on one of the pig trails right out of Lost.

Started this one out with a 2. 5 hour car ride in traffic.  Lousy.  However the Maunawili Trail was worth it.  We ran the first two miles in stunning jungle.  next 2 was basically  a side trail to the Mauniwili Falls.  Waterfall nothing special but the ridgeline trail views coming back with the scalloped Jurrasic Park mountains shooting up in the mist was awesome.  Maybe the most beautiful outdoor site I have ever seen.  Took a few headshots with overlying canopy branches and a few near death stumbles but it was 5 star.  Back to the cold on Saturday

Wanted to go for a trailrun today but life not cooperating.  Slogged out a few in the dark tonight just to clear the soul and the sinuses

Wanted to get some good mileage in and today 10 was all I had in the tank.  Drove to Millcreek canyon and started up Churchfork and then "ran" up to the end of pipeline and continued up the main road just to hit 5 miles and then came back.  Lots of people on the trail today.  Walked most of the trail up the switchbacks around Burch Hollow as felt low energy and was walking faster than running.  avg overall just over 10:00 per with 1:47 or so for the run.  Nice to again be in the beautiful mountails.

Overdressed this one so am sweating like a beast. Thought it was still cold because of earlier snow, but must have been in mid 40s.  I like being sweaty though so not too shabby.  Ran a 8:31 avg on a Holladay route out to the Market Street Grill area.  Nice tunes today.  It's interesting that its the same music list I have in the ipod but some days it fires on great songs and sometimes it is full of suckitude.

Wowza.  Got a call from a neighbor who has run 25 marathons in the past 4 years to see if I wanted to run with him this am.  I of course am trying to gear up for the first one.  I now call him the drill sergeant.  He wanted to run hills, so we started out and ran up 45th south all the way up to the mouth of Neffs canyon in Olympus cove.  I had to power walk here and there and catch up.  3.7 miles of pretty steep ups.  Then down to base of millcreek canyon where he wanted to do some sprint work.  did 3 30sec sprinting hill repeats.  totally gassed at this point.  then we started running up millcreek canyon and got to log haven restaurant.  he had another appt so his wife picked us up and drove us down the canyon to his house.  run 10.5 at this point so i went alone back home to get the 13.  He is a task master and a bit too intense about it all for my taste.  Good work out nonetheless.  Nothing too fast with all the up.  avg at the end 9:48
