Beautiful morning here and I really wanted to run but my heel is aching bad.

Three mile walk instead. Maybe some swimming this afternoon.

AM: Did my Old Man three mile walk/jog around the neighborhood. I'll give myself one mile of running. To make myself feel even more Old Mannish, I ran (walked) into Jon Kotter and Nate Ogden and had a nice chat with them by the Blue Plate. This neighborhood just keeps getting faster all the time.

PM: 12:25 hot miles up at Jeremy Ranch.

I don't know if I've ever mentioned this but my son Andy is obsessed with money. I think his main role model is Mr.Krabbs from Sponge Bob. He never walks by a newspaper machine, drink machine, pay phone without checking the coin return and looking under the machine for money. He also collects aluminum cans. Up at Jeremy Ranch today he was picking up cans on the side of the dirt road while I ran when a man in a big white truck stopped and asked him if he was picking up cans. Then he told Andy that he was the "owner of this here ranch" and gave him five dollars for helping keep his ranch clean!

AM: One easy mile warming up with my team. Had the boys run 6 x 200 this morning. Kramer was running them in the 27-28 range without too much trouble. Makes me wish I was young again.

I wandered up to Jeremy Ranch at 8 AM hoping to bump into someone up there to do a longish run with. It figures that the one Saturday I can make it up in the last month there's nobody else there.

Pretty nice solo run though - 15 miles in 1:54. A bit faster than I normally do that run.

Had a pretty good meet for my boys last night. I should comment on the ridiculous improvement in high school XC in Utah over the past few years.The Murray Invitational is a good comparison because the course has remained standard and the weather is almost always the same.

In 2006 Davis won the meet with a combined team time of 1:25:04 and 89 points. My Alta team finished 3rd out of 30 teams with a team time of 1:27:20 and 136 points.

Fast forward to this year. Davis runs 1:21:40 and has to win on a 6th man tie-breaker. Their team score was in the 80s, virtually identical to what their 1:25 got them in 2006. My boys ran 1:25:53 to finish 8th out of 37 teams. We had 309 points!

My #1 runner, Kramer Morton finished FIFTH in 15:51.

In 2006 Luke Puskedra of Judge WON in 15:56. 

 

PM: Super easy three miles in the neighborhood.
