Late AM: 3 mile walk with Andy. The walk included a stop a Maverick to rent a movie at the Redbox and split an ice cream sandwich. We also walked by a lemonade stand operated by one of Andy's classmates so we had to patronize that establisment as well. I didn't have any cash but the young entrepreneur was willing to accept the Chick-fil-a gift card in my wallet with a balance of $1.77 on it in exchange for some lomonade.

PM: 4.25 of ellipticaling plus some weights/strength training.

AM: 2.5 mile hike up at Alta with Andy. Also did some rock lifting.

PM: 8.5 miles on the Pipester with Jake and Andrea. They used to blog here :)

I feel like in about 6 months it will be me and about 50 high school kids blogging here. Even Sasha hardly ever posts.

Swamped! This is being the most hectic summer ever. I thought teachers had summers off.

20 miles on the treadmill. 7:20 pace.

I don't find long treadmill runs to be any more boring than than any long run unless it's in an incredible natural setting with great trails. If it's in the gym, where I can watch TV and people watch, it gives me plenty to look at and think about. Plus I have a simple brain that requires little stumulation.
