26 miles in 3:15. I mostly averaged around 7:30 pace after doing the first couple miles between eight and nine minute pace.

This is easily the longest I've ever gone on a training run. I feel good, no aches or pains. Maybe It'll pay off in May and June. Now we are off to Sunday School for the kids (Starbucks across the street for me) and church. Abby is participating in the service today and is excited.

Today is Andy's adoption Day (the anniversary of the day we finalized his adoption), and as always, we will go to Bucca Di Beppo tonight to celebrate with friends.

Today I left Alta and headed South on 13th East into a hellacious headwind. Major changes in the weather the next few days with cold rain/snow and high winds in the forecast. Headed up the Porter Rockwell Trail for five miles and then turned around. Awesome tailwind on the way back. Ran with Garrett, Skyler, Ryan, and Jesse but had them turn around before me.

Today was mostly a strength training/core workout day. I did a warm-up and cool-down on the treadmill. It's been a couple weeks since I lifted, so I'll be pretty sore tomorrow.

Ten miles in 1:10. I ran the Best Buy Loop plus a bunch of laps around the Alta Track while my AP U.S. History students were taking an after school practice exam. The essay portion of the exam takes over two hours, so I multi-tasked and went for a run while they were writing.
