Beautiful morning for a run with perfect temps. Was nice to still have energy toward the end enough to keep up with Ken for a couple miles.

Another perfect temp morning. Ended up doing a bunch of random speed stuff: 6 strides, 3 quarter mile repeats (around 6:30 pace), 2 halfs (around 7 min pace) and 1 MP mile at the end (just over 8 min).

Fires are back but so far smoke not too bad in our neighborhood.

Fires exploded during the day yesterday and by last night the hills surrounding mouth of Payson Canyon were fully ablaze visible throughout Utah County. Headed up the hill and south this morning to take a look and happy to no longer see any visible flames, but the smoke in the valleys was horrible again just like early August so I cut the run short and walked back home. Hopefully those evacuated from Elkridge, Payson, Salem and Woodland Hills can return home today and find everything intact.

Gotta start running in the evenings now with the smoke from the fires being so horrible during the AM hours.

Finally got a clear morning with no horribly smoky air! Couple that with temps in the 50's and it made for a dandy run!

Back to smoky air mornings after a 1 day reprieve. Hit the eliptical for 60 min cross-train workout.
