AM: 4.25 easy miles on the POS hotel treadmill - early while everyone else was still sleeping. Now down to the spiffy Hampton Inn breakfast!

PM: 13.75 on the Mineral Belt Trail in Leadville, Co.

This definitely ranks as one of my five most unique and enjoyable runs ever. The Mineral Belt Trail is a twelve mile trail that circumnavigates the town of Leadville and all the closed down silver mines. www.mineralbelttrail.com.

The awesome awesomeness of this place can not be over stated. More tomorrow after I do some running on the Leadville 100 course.

Hectic travel day. Unable and unwilling to squeeze a run in like I planned.

Drove home from Grand Junction today. Had a cheeseburger at Ray's Tavern in Green River along the way. Best burgers in Utah and it's probably worth a drive to Green River just for that. Also went to the John Wesley Powell Museum which is really nice. Topped it all off with a spin through the Prehistoric Museum at the College of Eastern Utah in Price. Cool if you like dinosaurs and prehistoric stuff.

Tired when I got home, but managed a couple laps around Sugarhouse Park. Was pleased to find it not 100 degrees like it was yesterday in Colorado.

Think I might need to think about training for something.

AM: Met James, Allie, Fritz, Jake, and Andrea at Highland High this morning for an easy seven. Nice to run with a group after a week of solo running.

Chilly this morning. Almost needed gloves. 

PM: Nine miles at Alta - up and around the Albion Basin campground three times and back down. Nice to have Jake and Kevin along.

Today I walked four miles around cross country practice at Sugarhouse and to and from the gym. This while wearing a heavy backpack loaded with books and gym gear. Imagine!

At the gym I rode 20 miles on the lifecycle in 55:30. Generated gallons of sweat.

I counted all of this as 10 miles. 

Yes, my foot hurts. Why doesn't this injury go away?

8.25 miles on the treadmill at seven minute pace. Decided to pay attention to my heart rate a little bit. It stayed at 132-135 the whole time.

Looking forward to the trials 10,000. Also excited about my long trail run planned for tomorrow. Or, long for me these days.

Twelve miles easy around Liberty Park. Hot already, but didn't notice the smoke from the fire like yesterday.
