9.3 miles on the Pipeline Trail early. Kept the pace easy.

Our dog Summit died today. He was diagnosed with cancer back in May and he lived a little longer than the vet said he would back then. Up until 2 days ago he was doing ok although slowing down a lot. Still chasing his ball and going for walks. But yesterday he just stopped everything and I had to carry him into the vets office. Hard with a 106 pound dog. Rough day!

AM: 3 mile hike in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah with Andy.

PM: 8.25  miles on the treadmill at 24 Hour Fitness.

If you're one of those people that believes the private sector does everything better than the public sector what with all their competition and accountability, how do you explain a crappy company like 24 Hour Fitness that keeps right on not going out of business? Every government owned gym or health club I've ever been too whether it was operated by Salt Lake County or the U.S. Army is far and away superior.
