Morning run in Seattle, a little nippy but no rain so it was all good.

Raining pretty heavy so had to do a lovely treadmill run. At least I had my bluetooth headphones and some good tunes.

Ran up Loafer with Dan. Wasn't feeling the love today as I haven't been sleeping well this week and especially last night. Thinking maybe the big full moon is to blame!

In St George. Went hiking with Kim near the condo 3rd Ravine and Zen trails. Just shy of 5 miles I believe.

Ran from the condo to Chuckwalla trail head where I meet up with Kim. Then about 4 miles mix of hiking and trail running on Chuckwalla, Turtle Wall, and Paradise Rim trails. Then parted ways with Kimi and ran back to the condo. Desert is beautiful this time of year with the wild flowers in full bloom!

Bottom front of my right foot a little sore so I dusted off the Hoka clown shoes and it seems to have done the trick.

Foot pain seems to be gone but I think I'll stick with the Hokas for a few more days.

Morning run with Kimi in St George on the Zen trail. Good times and nobody did a face plant so that was nice.

Had no energy the last half of the run for some reason. A bit nippy for late April but a pretty morning.
