16.75 miles in 2:00 - 7:10 pace.Finally, a run that left me feeling a little bit optimistic for the upcoming season.

40.25 miles over the last three days. That is high mileage for me, a guy who has never even once in my life hit 90 for a week.

Spring has sprung here in Salt Lake. My run today took me through Sugarhouse and Liberty Parks - both were crammed with people exuding giddyness at the warm waether. I don't ever remember getting this feeling when I was growing up in Florida.

That's because in Florida its a precursor to oppressive heat and humidity which tend to NOT elicit feelings of giddiness, but rather misery. Nice speed on your run today - guess the lungs are clear.

I like it when people exude giddyness. Sweet training!

Ya - we had our week of spring last week - this week we've jumped to summer - 88 and humid today, oh joy!
