One mile warm-up around the neighborhood then 14 miles in 1:45 with Jake, Josh, and Nate through Millcreek, Holladay, and down Wasatch Blvd. Mostly above the inversion which was a good thing.

Our Manning prediction was on the money. 266 yards and 4 TDs... at halftime!

Nice effort, Rob - maybe someday you can be #1 on the Mileage Board (look quick, look quick!!)

From Rob Murphy on Sun, Dec 29, 2013 at 16:36:57 from

Jake - check that - 8 TD's

Doug - I'm going out for 5.25 miles now. Kidding. You're doing well.

Thanks - I will rapidly fade to page 2 since that is nearly 50% of my planned mileage for the week :)

How am I supposed to catch up to your yearly mileage when you keep running?
