7.25 treadmill miles. Topped 30 miles this week!

Met Kramer and a few other runners after for a workout. The Foot Locker course at Mt. Sac is much different than the Nike course in Mesa - much more hilly, favors strong runners. So we did a hard, hilly run in the gully for 65 minutes. 

You know what really warms my heart? Running into my former runners doing hill sprints in the gully nine years after they graduated. I did that today with Chelsie Harward, state champion in 2004 in the 798 meter run (2nd in the 800!). Chelsie is now married to Jess Baumgartner who finished third in the 2006 NCAA XC championships for SUU. Jess is finishing up his final year of med school in Iowa and they are in town for Thanksgiving. She looked great despite having a baby five months ago and said she just got nostalgic for the old gully!

I told her that she and Jess definitely need to move into Alta's attendance area and start sending me some runners in a few years. 

I took Abby to the Highland High track for a workout this afternoon. She ran a mile (new PR because it was her first) in 9:31.
