Literally not possible to run today. Third zero in the last six days. Don't feel good about that at all. 

Not only that but I'm sitting all day and eating super healthy hotel breakfasts and conference food. Just IDEAL for my race this weekend!

I need to get rid of my job and my family and be in a state that doesn't have 48 straight hours of continuous thunder storms and torrential rain.

1.5 mile walk from my hotel to Cherry Creek High School. Scored two new tennis balls for my dog. CCHS has won 38 state championships in boys tennis and 27 in girls since 1972. That's dominance.

Cherry Creek High has a great track with a college sized stadium. Think I'll do a workout there tonight and run some stadium stems. Jupiter Creek Steeplechase this Saturday!

PM: Ran to CCHS, hopped the fence into their spiffy stadium/track (similar to a D II college I'd say), circled the track for a long time and did 20 stadiums.

People around here like their Jag-U-ars. In fact, while running back to the hotel I saw a wreck involving two Jag-U-ars. It was funny to see their two slicky boy owners in suits obsessively snapping pictures of the damage with their phones. I wanted to shout "it's good to be bad".

The traffic around Denver is insane. Almost approaching Southern California levels in some places.

Ann, Abby, and Andy went back up to Boulder today and spent most of the day tubing down Boulder Creek.

When The Congo achieved its independence from Belgium in 1960, only 12 people in the entire country had a college degree.

Nice night at the Boulder Outlook. "The Cure for the Common Hotel".

I got up at 5 this morning and drove up Boulder Canyon (if that canyon was in Utah we'd have three or four half marathons in it) and ran Mags. 15.75 miles in 2 hours. Hilly, about 9,000 feet.

I can say "Mags" now because I've done it twice.

Other stuff...

Drove Magnolia Road and through Nederland with the family.

Took Andy to his first big leage game at Coors Field. The Pirates beat the Rockies 7-5

Ate dinner in downtown Denver.

Checked into hotel at the Denver Tech Center.
