Fifteen miles around Liberty Park in 1:55. Close to as perfect a morning for running as it gets.

Ran into Fritz, James, and Allie for the last lap.

Five miles around the "Fairyland" loop and Rim Trail at Bryce. The Fairyland trail is a more manly trail run than the name implies.

I was going to do more but I was way over dressed and was a miserable, soaking wet mess on the more strenuous climbs. I'll go back later and get some miles in on the Rim Trail.

PM: Twelve miles on the Bryce Canyon Rim Trail. Pretty empty trail except for the areas around the parking lots and view points.

Ann revealed to me at dinner tonight that she had a crush on Faron Young as a child. Seriously, just google the name to get a sense of how much she rocked in the seventies.

I did an encore of the Bryce Canyon Rim Trail this morning from Fairyland Point to Bryce Point and backwhich is exactly 11 miles plus a little extra in the parking lot. 1:41 with the last mile in 7:23. Slowest mile was 10:01.

Definitely a bucket list run. I started around 7 am and saw maybe ten people the whole way on a perfect morning.

PM: 3 mile walk with Ann. I'm a bit sore.

PM: 5.25 on the treadmill while Abby was practicing.

Lots of walking today too. Back and forth to the school with Andy to play wall ball and back and forth to the Maverick to get some cigarettes and beer.

Fifteen miles up at Jeremy Ranch in 1:56. Really "challenging" headwind on the way back and quite a lot of traffic. Lots of dirt in the eyes and mouth. 

Closed with a 6:17 last mile. Not bad.

The positive was the nice tailwind going out!

Five miles super easy around the neighborhood and Highland High track.

Managed to almost completely avoid paved roads and concrete this week. With the easy day today, I should be primed for a decent workout tomorrow if I can squeeze it in sometime.
