AM: Ran 7.25 miles in the gully at 7 am and then did 4 more miles on the treadmill while my kids were running.

If I lived in Missouri, I'd vote for Eric Greitens. Plus he's run a 2:58 marathon.

At the Steiner Sports Complex...

10 miles on the treadmill with 8 x 400 in the middle. Sort of a 400 on, 400 off kind of thing. Started off at 6 minute pace (10 mph) and worked down to 5:27 pace (11 mph) at the end.

Finished with a light strength/core workout and a swim.

Then I sat and read for an hour while Andy finished his day at camp.

10 miles on the PR in 1:16 something-or-other. Ran with Blake, Cubby, Zach, Read, and a few of my fast young Freshmen and Sophomores. Had the new kids stop at 6 miles.

21st wedding anniversary today. Ann and I are escaping the heat for dinner at The Silver Fork Lodge up in Big Cottonwood Canyon tonight.

Pretty good race today. Splits were 5:58, 5:48, 6:01 and whatever for the .1

5ks - used to run them practically every summer weekend. Now, not so much. It's a hard race if you run it right. Of course that's true of every race, but 5ks seem different to me.

I'll run Draper Days in a couple weeks and see if I can dip under 18. It's a much faster course than the Sandy Classic.

I ran 4 seconds faster than two years ago when I was a youngster of 48. So this is my Sandy Classic PR.

Late AM: 1 mile walk in the Highland Park 4th of July Parade. Run through the fire hose after.
