Ufda!

So I ran a little today. I have a bad cold and feel like a complete turd but I ran 2.25 miles with Abby after work and then a couple more on my own. I excreted a gallon of snot during the run and actually feel a little better now!

Proud of Abby

I'm thrilled to announce my return to the gully after a several month absence due to gas pipeline installation and Indian ruin excavation.

Gully longer run in about 57 minutes. Not a bad run. Thought mostly about what I'm going to say at our track awards dinner tonight.

Repeat performance in the gully today because I'm just so giddy about it being open. Averaged 7:54 for the Gully Longer Run.

Good first day of running today for my xc runners. Pretty good group of upcoming freshmen plus a senior transfering from Rock Springs. 

PM: I ran 2.25 miles with Abigail Pumpkin Pie in 20 minutes-ish. We met Ann and Andy at the nifty new Imperial Park the city built in our neighborhood. Hung out there for a while - it seemed like Andy's whole 3rd grade class was there so he had spastic fun for a long time.

Then we walked home and had Taco Thursday.

Congrats to the Alta Hawks for winning the 5A state soccer championship today!

2 miles at practice with the team plus 10 stadiums. That's all I had time for. I'm hoping Andy's baseball game gets rained out so I have time for some more.

PM: 3 miles plus some core stuff, push-ups and sit-ups around the fields at Andy's baseball game. I think some of the other parents think I'm odd.

Why are adds for "sweet Asian women" popping up here on the FRB????

AM: Walked to downtown Sugar House with the kiddos. Had breakfast at Chic-fil-a   (kids had breakfast, I had coffee), hung out at Barnes & Noble for a while, looked at all the newborn ducklets in the creek, and then walked home. 

PM: 8.25 kind of cold, rainy miles. The street lights were on in my neighborhood at 3:30 in the afternoon it was so dark out.

Not much of a week mileage wise but a great week in other ways. I'm feeling pretty strong with minimal aches and pains. Still looking for that perfect late summer/early fall race while I have time to train and before cross country season gets rolling seriously.
