I took the day off of work to hang out with my mom who is in town for the week. So I was able to do a late morning run around Sugarhouse.

10.25 miles plus some striders on the grass at the park.

Mom graciously offered to pay for a room at the spiffy Spring Hill Suites at Thanksgiving Point Friday night. So I'll be staying down there prior to the race on Saturday.

I'm almost through with Bill Rodger's new book. There are a couple things about it that separate it from the standard sports/runners bio in a good way. I'll try to post a detailed review in the next couple days.

One thing I didn't know about him was that his 2:09:55 win at Boston in 1975 was a 10 minute PR.
