No running. 800 miles of driving and some hiking with Andy around the south rim of the Grand Canyon.

Good to be home. Not too much running and lots of crappy food the last few days.

Five miles after work plus a couple miles of walking with Ann and Andy. Felt good to be moving and not sitting in a car all day.

I think about half my colleagues are out sick today. I'm sure it has nothing to do with being the last day before a five day break.

It's been over two years since I was sick. Seriously, not even a cold. I attribute it to mostly abandoning early morning runs and getting more sleep. Of course, I'm a lot slower as well.

PM: 8.5 miles on the treadmill after work. Five days off now!

10 miles at 8 minute pace around Sugar House Park. Dinner at Ray's Tavern in Green River tonight.

It's poop season in the park. During the winter months, dog owners don't feel the need to pick up after their dogs. I suppose using the logic that frozen poop isn't quite as gross. Problem is, it takes a while to freeze. Two crap encrusted shoes after the run today.

I failed my IQ test today at Dead Horse Point State Park. Walk/jogged for a while looking for a runnable trail that was well enough marked so I wouldn't have to stop every quarter mile or so to make sure I was on the trail. Couldn't do that. So I got on the road and started running back to Moab while Ann and the kids hiked around with Amiee. 

Got 13.25 miles in before they scooped me up. Gave myself a mile for my aimless jogging around the park. Averaged about 7:40.

Hopefully we'll be able to find a Moab restaurant for Thanksgiving!

Lots of hiking and a little jogging around Arches. Finally made it out to Delicate Arch.

500 floors in 56 minutes on the stair master plus a little treadmill warm-up.

It was warm today but I was irritated by the wind so I went indoors. Plus I wanted to watch football.
