We got buried in snow this morning and SLC was slow to plow as usual so I went to the gym and treadmilled. 13.5 miles of treadmilling plus some strength training.

Finally returning to Alex Hutchinson's Endure  after getting sidetracked my another book.

Roger Bannister died today. Along with most people, I was a big fan.

7.5 treadmill miles at about 7:25 pace. 1 mile on the quad masher.

Nice, short tribute to Roger Bannister by Malcolm Gladwell at newyorker.com. David Epstein also wrote a more lengthy piece for Sports Illustrated. I reccomend both.

10 miles at exactly 8:00 pace around the school/Sandy environs. Just roaming aimlessly.

Today the world learned that our president goes by the name David Dennison when he's shacking up with porn stars.

6 miles of gully running to Dimple Dell Road and then 6 hard hill sprints in the gully. Pleasantly tired now.

AM: Five miles of walking.Walked from home to Ray's Barbershop to get my hair cut. Walked from Rays to the King's English bookstore where I picked up a copy of David Roberts latest, and probably last, book. Then crossed the street to Caputo's Deli where I had the Grand Parma breakfast sandwich and a cup of coffee. Then walked home through Sugar House Park.

PM: 10 miles circling Liberty Park. Thumbs-up to the girl who was playing the bagpipes in the park.
