....doppler radar has issued a Running Warning for the following areas....

Welcome to the new faithful followers!  I look forward to getting around to meet you.  Please feel free to become a constant commenter so we can get to know eachother.  I can use all the advice and encouragement I can get.

Yeah the return of Biking Sherpa!  I missed her
Run # 72 (6.5/52:27)

Last night I sent of a Running Warning forecast.  Doppler radar had pick up the presence of an increase in motivational pressure quickly moving into my area.  The forecast was for a fast moving storm containing moderate amounts of moisture and steady wind to overtake the area around 6 p.m. and move out of the area by 7 p.m.  Luckily Biking sherpa got the update and responded.

...or maybe she passed out from the run...I better check.

We had a great run.  We did a usual route in reverse, Biking Sherpa's favorite way.  I felt slow and heavy at first but loosened up as we got past some of the lengthy inclines.  I wanted to extend the run a bit but Biking Sherpa wasn't up for anything extarordinary so we finished up and chatted for a while.  But as you can see, Biking Sherpa clearly had a little extra energy for being silly after the run!
Maybe tonight she'll be energized to go again?!

Post run silliness

This morning I was tired.  LBM is staying up way too late at night and getting up early.  So this morning off we went for a wake up run.  3.5 miles 27:07  It was actually chilly.  I am not complaining, of course.  I am simply noting the conditions for comparison sake.  I was a bit speedier this morning dispite having run last night and the fact that it was run # 74.  The cooler conditions may have helped me quicken the pace.

Run # 73 (3.5/27:07)
