So we were discussing the most influential Americans of all time in class today and a student got mad at me for saying Jesus wasn't an American.

Nice Liberty Park run with some striders, push-up, sit-ups, and drills.

Got to meet Roo, The Dog of the Blog, tonight.

I took the whole day off for the state meet today. Usually I'm so hyped up and jittery that I end up showing a film in class anyway so I thought I'd let the sub handle the difficult task of pressing "play" on the DVD player. Should be a barn-burner, three of the top six teams in the U.S. on Dyestat from Utah. Six I think in the top thirty. 

Walked Andy to school. Drove Abby to school. Went for a nice run around the neighborhood. 8.25 miles in 1:04. I love running.

Bittersweet state meet today since it will be my last one. We Murphys are moving at the end of this school year to a whole other state (Forrest Gump reference). There are so many people I will miss and I'll miss the awesomeness of this great state. I'm almost certain Ann and I will move back for at least part of the year when we retire. Old people can ski practically free. Lots of work to do now getting the house ready to sell, packing, getting new jobs, etc. Exciting though.

The team this year has been one of the most rewarding to coach. I'll write more about them this evening after the meet no matter how they do. Heading over now to watch the races. 

Our run of perfect state meet weather continues...

Five miles plus some rope jumping, push-ups and sit-ups.

Lots of walking too. I walked about 4 miles yesterday to Chick fil a and back with the kids and 3 miles today with Andy and around Sugar House Park. I try to walk a lot and keep track of it when I'm in reduced training mode like I am now so I can keep my weight the same.

I've been thinking about racing the USATF cross country championships in Boulder in February. An 8k cross country race seems like fun and it would be good for my coaching to stay connected. It would be fun to put together a masters team.
