Out the door at 6:30 this morning for16.5 miles in about two hours. Ran around Sugarhouse a couple times, down 15th East past the outside breakfast eaters and coffee drinkers at 15th and 15th, and then down to Liberty Park for several miles on the wood chip path. The city recently dumped a lot of fresh wood chip on the trail so it is considerably softer and slower than usual. Nice run, but legs felt a little slow from the hard 800s yesterday.
Ann and the kids met me at the park at 8:45 and we dropped her off at her yoga class. The kids and I went to Barnes and Noble in Sugarhouse for a treat in the cafe and some fun hangin' out in the kids section reading books. I was reading this book by this dude who is apparently a surfing legend named Laird Hamilton called "Force of Nature". I was wondering if I wrote a book about myself if I could use a title like that without gagging. Anyway, the book had lots of glossy pictures of Laird surfing big waves all over the planet, pictures of Laird gazing off into the distance with intensity and deep wisdom, Laird with his incredibly gorgeous family. The book should maybe be called "Force of My Perfection". So I woud never buy this book but there is a lot of worthwhile advice in it so if anyone wanted to buy it for me and have it shipped to my house that would be cool.
