I needed some mountains today so I delegated practice today to the assistant coach and took Abby up to Alta to run.

7 miles up at Albion Basin. Beautiful and much needed. I've been frazzled a lot lately.

Abby is a super kid. I had three seperate moments today when I was just really proud to be her dad.

Today is my 51st birthday. I ran 5.1 miles in 51 minutes.

Fancy family dinner tonight at Chipotle followed by conferences at Andy's school with hs teacher, a visit to the book fair, and birthday cherry pie and ice cream on the front porch.

AM: 3 mile walk...

I had a lot of fun with this race today at the Round Valley Trails. Splits were 6:28, 6:23, 5:50. I actually borrowed a pair of spikes from Read Hadfield, my #1 runner. So I sort of looked like a real cross country runner. Pretty decent race considering my 30 mile weeks these days.

It ain't the St. George Marathon but it was still fun and way cheaper.

Got a funny birthday card from my sister today. The outside has a cartoon picture of the Grim Reaper hopping on stones across a river and it says "birthdays are like stepping-stones to death".

Then on the inside it says "but the stones are really pretty and there are lots of bars along the way".

Nine miles at Liberty Park. I ran the first lap with Abby and then we ran in opposite directions so I could pass her twice every lap. Abby ran 7.5 miles.

Lots of food trucks in Liberty Park. Food trucks are the thing these days.
