Seven miles at about 8:10 pace. I did some lifting yesterday, including dead lifts and leg presses, so I'm sore today.

Struck out for our cabin in SW Colorado around 2:00 this afternoon. First vacation road trip ever with the dog. Of course he just puked in the hotel room. Fortunately it's the Robber's Roost Motel and they probably won't notice.

Great dinner, as always, at Ray's Tavern here in Green River.

We love staying in places like this.

Moab, Cortez CO, Mesa Verde NP, Durango tommorrow.

Enjoy your vacation Murphy clan. Mesa Verde also happens to be our vacation spot this summer:)

I love dead lifts. Oh, wait.. They ruin me. Really, I wish I did them more often. Have an awesome vacation! And good luck with the pup!

Sounds like a blast. Safe travels! "If you come to a fork in the road, take it".
