Three miles on the treadmill plus some really hard lifting. I'll be sore everywhere tomorrow.

Finally got our car fixed today. For the last couple years the electronics (it's a 2007 Hyundai Veracruz) have been completely psycho. Since Hyundai has this 100,000 mile warranty, we've had it in  the shop a bunch of times and they can never get it fixed. We have just chalked it up to demon possession. Well, turns out after Ann got rear ended a couple years ago after dropping me off at the Salt Lake Half starting line that the body shop jammed some wires up where they aren't supposed to be and the exhaust system burned through them. Anyway, the guy finally figured it out today and now it's fixed. Happy day! Now I'll have seat warmers this winter.

I'm feeling really good and can't wait to get back to some serious running. But I'm going to wait a little while longer.
