AM: Walked to downtown Sugar House with the kiddos. Had breakfast at Chic-fil-a   (kids had breakfast, I had coffee), hung out at Barnes & Noble for a while, looked at all the newborn ducklets in the creek, and then walked home. 

PM: 8.25 kind of cold, rainy miles. The street lights were on in my neighborhood at 3:30 in the afternoon it was so dark out.

Not much of a week mileage wise but a great week in other ways. I'm feeling pretty strong with minimal aches and pains. Still looking for that perfect late summer/early fall race while I have time to train and before cross country season gets rolling seriously.

Yes, and we need to get together for a run!

I've run every Deseret News since 2002 but my streak will come to an end this summer. I have a conference in Colorado that weekend.
