I drove up to Jeremy Ranch later than usual cuz of watching the NY marathon this morning. Replaying Shalane Flanagan's run through Central Park kept me motivated the whole way. I don't think anything makes us happier than watching a person achieve a lifetime goal.

Sad about the church shooting in Texas. I believe we have a mass shooting or killing in this country almost every week and, if I'm not mistaken, we are the only country where that is the case. I don't see any solution in the short term. We are who we are.

So I ran the JRR road in some really iffy weather. Lots of mud, rain, wind, a little bit of snow and a little bit of sunshine. I needed to be dressed differently every mile. Decent training lately makes me think I need to have some sort of goal. I'm thinking I might got to Bend in February and run the USATF cross country championships. The masters race is an 8k on a really challenging course. I might be fairly competative in the 50-54 AG.

Just thinking. The real goal these days is to stay healthy and fit.

Turning point of sorts in my life this morning. I had my post cross country season exit interview with the administration this morning and I resigned all my coaching duties here at Alta. After 22 seasons and considering the lack of success my teams have had the past couple years, I just felt it was time. I will really miss the good times though.

PM: 8 miles at 8:13 pace around Sugar House Park.

PM: At the gym I did 5.5 miles on the stair master and then lifted lots of weights so that I'll likely be sore tomorrow.

6.25 miles to Elbow Fork and back. I wanted to do more but I was caught off guard by the sun setting and I forgot my illumination.

Had some nice interactions with people today regarding Veterans Day, running, and life in general.

Nice run at Jeremy Ranch. Happy to have Abby join me. Tried out the spiffy Moose Cafe for breakfast after.
