Today I ran 10 miles. I generally wanted to do something that would give me a lot of confidence for a half marathon in a few weeks. Last year around this time I ran the Salt Lake Half in 1:18:06. I'm hoping to go at least a couple minutes faster this year. So here is what I did today...

1 mile in 9:30 - it was early, takes me a while to get rollin.

Went to Great Harvest Bread Company after with Andy. Got a day-old loaf of 9 Grain bread, and a large coffee for $3.89. And they give you generous free samples, so Andy got a big chunk O chocolate chip cookie and I got some cinnamon raisin bread for free. Why would anyone go to Starbucks?
