9.25 miles on the treadmill plus some hot tubbing. Enjoyed a feeling of general well being.

One of my favorite runners, Ashton Arndt, got smacked by a car that ran a red light while coming home from work last night. He spent the night in the ER but will be all right thank God. Wish him luck.

I ran 7 miles in the gully today with my favorite training partners, the Alta XC team.

Also, my favorite band ever, The Replacements, were inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. And without ever producing a single hit.

These guys taught me that you could be a generally successful person while at the same time lacking ambition in the conventional sense.

So, a good day.

Twelve point five miles at Jeremy Ranch with Jake and my team. 

I had the team start out with an easy two followed by three miles tempo and then seven easy. Kramer ran the tempo in 15:55. Not bad on a hill course at altitude. He's ready for state.

This is a really cool youtube video for you track history junkies. Super high quality audio and video for 1969.

I have a question. Why are the NFL and college football so obsessed with breast cancer? You know, with the pink shoes and helmets, and uniforms every single year? I'm just wondering because football is a game played exclusively by men and it's audience disproportionately male. 

Why not focus on prostate cancer? It kills almost as many people as breast cancer does. I don't know this for sure,but I'll bet that men are far less likely to get regular colonoscopies than women are to get mammograms. It seems to me that the NFL could be far more effective on that front.

Easy two miles at practice. The boys did 1 X 1/2 Mile and 2 X 1/4 mile with long rests. The 1/2 mile was hilly with a 180 degree turn. Kramer ran 2:04, 52, 52. Yep, that'll do it.
