Got up early this morning and was out the door at 5:45. Jeff Shadley and his family stayed with us last night after the UVM na we had plans for a big breakfast this morning at Ruth's Diner.

So I ran 15 miles, generally easy, but with the last mile in 5:50. When I got home everyone was up and Jeff gave me a slight hard time about not waking him up to run with me. Said he would have been good for five! I told him I was trying to encourage responsible behavior the day after a 2:42 marathon. There are some hard core runners on this blog.

Anyway, we had a great time with the Shadleys. Jeff and I took the kids to our local pool yesterday afternoon, grilled burgers and hot dogs last night, and a big huge breakfast this morning. After breakfast at Ruth's I was going to show Jeff the fir5st few miles of the Deseret News Marathon course and was surprised to see the road is still closed going up to Big Mountain.

Thanks for being smarter than me! We loved spending time with you and your family...will have to make it a regular occurrence.

Have a great week, travel safely and have a great race on Saturday!
