Total of 18 miles this morning.

I ran an easy couple miles in the neighborhood finishing at Highland High where I met Jake, Nate, and Kevin. I did a few striders in the parking lot and then ran about 11 miles up through Tanner Park, down Wasatch past the Hogle Zoo and then back down to the school. I wanted to do a few extra so I circled the neighborhood a few times.

Finished up with 16 miles in 1:59. I was feeling the heat a bit towards the end.

So I'm flirting with my first 20 miler in over a year. It could happen.

You forget to mention the gel thief.

Nice run Rob! What would be the significance of running your first 20 miler in over a year on Mother's Day? Coincidence?

Today is Mother's Day?

My brother told me that I am hosting Mother's Day dinner. So I guess it is today.

First 20 of the year needs to be at Jeremy Ranch. Then it counts as 25.

Nice run. I really hate running with you when you tack on a few extra blocks at the end.
