Nine at Liberty Park. Sunny and warmish once again so I got to soak up some Vitamin D.

I also walked about 3.5 miles today.

10.25 miles on the treadmill.

Hectic week getting ready to take 30 kids down to Arizonaland (thanks Johnny Cash) to run Nike Southwest. My boys got new uniforms today which look mighty spiffy. Black shorts, white singlet, bright red "Alta" in the same block lettering we always use. Got one for Jake which he probably won't wear it because it's Nike.

150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address today which was a mighty fine speech.

I also heartily reccomend today's Radio West broadcast dealing with Mormons and Non-Mormons in Utah. Y'all want to know what has been responsible for me finally getting some close Mormon friends after 12 years of living in Utah? This blog. 

I'm especially thinking of my good buddy Steve Anderson who runs across the Grand Canyon every weekend as a routine training run and who I haven't seen in way too long. I'm tipping a cold Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in your direction Steve... not that you'd drink it!

Nothing like a shared obsession to bring people together. 

Shoot! The Johnny Cash link won't work. Just go to youtube and type in "The Ballad of Ira Hayes".

Easy 4.25 on the Hampton Inn treadmill. More later at the race.

About 1.5 inches of rain yesterday in Phoenix breaking the old record for the date which was something like .5 inches.
