Unexpected conflicts arose and I won't be able to make it down to St. George to race this weekend.

I've had a really difficult last 36 hours, mostly at work. But I think it has passed. We just re-financed our mortgage and we closed on that this afternoon. 3.24 % for 15 years - pretty good deal.

Good mental health run this evening and I needed it. 10 miles in 1:12 with several hard striders on the HH track. Also pushed the hills hard in Sugarhouse Park.

Sorry you won't be able to make the race, life gets in the way a lot when you have family and work commitments.

Hope the conflicts aren't serious in nature.

thumbs down. Hope things are ok.

Glad you have weathered the storm for now. Runs that clear the head are always good.

I think the inner SHP loop is going to be where I do most of my tempos to get ready for Boston. If you can run that loop hard, it makes you very strong.
