Wanted to get off the couch and start this month off with something good.  just a clear cool morning jaunt around the Mill Creek Road loop.  Was just what I needed.  Can tell my cardio stinks overall but felt good miles 4 to 7.  Maybe will start running again haha

Spikes back in the shoes for a run up Pipeline,  burch hollow to elbow fork.  the trail and the blue sky were in perfect shape.  so stunning how much crap there is in the inversion when you truly get above it.

Pipeline is melting fast.  Firm cool trail 3 days ago is now getting slushy in the sun exposed areas.  Beautiful afternoon but trail littered with dog poo and bagged dog poo.  Getting worse up there every year. Felt like poo for half the run and then alright for the 2 mile downhill.

Neighborhood jaunt.  Felt good today just creaky.  Was going to double digits but snow started coming down and slipping around.

Happy Valentines.  Got a Cold so took it slow around the neighborhood hills.  New Cascadia 8 good but feel huge.  Need em huge though so my toes dont die on the downhills.  Wish I could get a quarter size smaller.  Overall feel familiar.

What a beautiful sunny day.  Infamous Big Titty Loop with Happy Trail extension.  Sweet slow time.  avg 9:56. Has some hills and some downs.  Totally nice to have some sun in the face and a salty sweaty nose drip.

Burch Hollow to Elbow Fork Pipeline.  Trail is getting soft with the warmer temps.  Nice to get out.  The initial elevation still giving me chest pain  but a bit better.

Thought I was going for more but to much snow on the trail.  Tried to do Quarry Trail but not packed enough.  So went to little bells reservoir.  Trail up there was great, but posthole ing  around the backside.  Beautiful though.

Snowy Day in Holladay.  Ski day didnt materialize so went on solo neighborhood jaunt through snow lined streets.  About 3 inches of fluff and slush.  Good to get out but man felt heavy sauce today.  Goat head shoe screws did good.

Reverse Big T loop.  Plodding along today for sure...slower than snot ola but good to get out.  Was sunny day initially.  SO cool to see the blue sky...like a dark shroud being lifted.
