PM: 15.5 miles in City Creek Cañon. Half road, half trail. Averaged 8:12. The weather cooperated and it was nice to have it a bit cool.

Didn't run today. Needed a day off and my hips hurt. Hips are becomming my most problematic body part. Walked a couple miles.

No time for running today. Likely the same tomorrow. Probably cancel my plans to race this weekend.

Maybe the most miserable race I've ever run??? Cold, torrential rain, strong headwind. Suffering from hypothermia at the end. Pleased with time considering the conditions. I feel really bad for people on this blog who ran or are running the full.

My right knee and right hamstring were not cooperating after mile 5 and that kept me from pushing harder when my other body parts wanted to. I'll have to figure that out in future races this year. On a positive note, my hip felt great.

Splits - 6:28, 6:15, 6:08, 6:20, 5:55, 6:18, 6:24, 6:19, 6:06, 6:21, 6:25, 6:25, 6:39, .34

One more note. In the 2 years since I've run a serious road race people have started wearing these fat shoes that look like pancakes. I don't know how good they are but they look really slow and dorky.
