Running around the cross country course plus a treadmill run at the gym.

The treadmill run might actually qualify as a workout. Did 6.25 miles with half under 6 minute pace. That's flying these days!

I remembered why we stopped running the Wasatch Rendezvous in 2008. 16 SEPERATE RACES are hard on a coach and a coaches voice. Especially if the coach is the type that believes his runners will run faster if he yells louder.

Ha ha! I hear that. I've tried to chill over the years; with very limited success.

I distinctly remember you poking fun at your sisters if they cheered for you to "run fast Rob" when you were racing in high school. :)

Dave - 2008 when my boys won state was my most relaxing year. Those guys were money in the bank. When the gun went off I'd nap under a tree and then go collect the trophy. I should take a cue from that.

Bret - My sisters had no impact on me but I know other girls did!
