Nice run around Sugar House Park after I got home from work. Had a nice talk with my boys at practice today how we might make it to the state meet with 3 freshmen and a sophomore on the varsity despite being in the same region as Timpview, Timpanogos, Provo, Orem, Mountain View, and Corner Canyon.

Today is Ann's birthday which is always a good day because we met on her 25th birthday back in 1992 in Greenville, SC. I was invited to a surprise party for her by a friend of mine who was dating a friend of hers. The first thing she ever said to me was a comment on the large veins in my forearms and how she appreciated that as a nurse. I was running a fair amount then and I remember I had just run a 10:17 two mile in an Army PT test a couple weeks earlier. We went on our first date a week later. We had dinner in downtown Greenville and then went to see a movie called "Hero" with Dustin Hoffman and Andy Garcia. After that we drove north on Highway 25 to and just drove around the mountains of western North Carolina in my Toyota pickup until about 2 am. Stopped for coffee in Hendersonville. When we got back to her apartment she told me to wait for a second and she ran inside. She came out a minute later with a bottle of windex and some paper towels and cleaned the inside of my windshield. She was worried about me not being able to see.

Today we got take out from Pei Wei and had cake and ice cream that Abby made.

I just realized, the internet didn't really exist at that time. I'm not sure what I did with my time, how I learned things ( books maybe?), or established relationships. 

Yep, a pretty good day.

I did a 6 mile run around Sugar House with Jake and Andrea. We left at about 6:15 when the weather was perfect.

2.5 mile warm-up finishing at the Highland High track.

10 X 400 with a 200 walk/jog interval.

86, 85, 84, 82, 80, 80, 79, 79, 78, 73

The 73 hurt. I'm pretty happy with those splits. It's crazy how long it takes to work into things at 51, but after a while the body gradually warms to the idea of running fastish.

My daughter Abby ran 20:49 today for 3 miles at the Region XC championships. I'm so proud of her.

Cooled down on the track and back to home.
