But I&#39;m not complaining. Took the opportunity to head up Millcreek Canyon for a 7.25 mile run in the 90 plus degree heat. Averaged 8:49.

He&#39;s huge with young men these days - many of what I consider to be the brightest kids I teach are disciples of Joe Rogan which is interesting because I think he&#39;s wrong about a lot of things. It makes sense though because he&#39;s charismatic and these are the kids that are paying attention. Less engaged kids don&#39;t know who he is.</p> Fri, 23 Aug 2019 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 21, 2019 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-21-2019.html <p>AM: 2.25 mile walk.</p> <p>PM: 5 miles on the Jeremy Ranch Road.</p> Wed, 21 Aug 2019 06:00:00 Tue, Aug 20, 2019 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-20-2019.html <p>AM: Walked 2.25 miles.</p> <p>PM: Ran 4.5 miles around Liberty Park.</p> Tue, 20 Aug 2019 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 19, 2019 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-19-2019.html <p>PM: 1 mile swim after school. 2 mile walk with Ann and Andy in the evening.</p> Mon, 19 Aug 2019 06:00:00 Sun, Aug 18, 2019 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-18-2019.html <p>Took the day off. Made it home from Missoula in time to get Andy to the Salt Lake Bees game where they recognized his all-star team. He also caught a home run ball over the right field fence.</p> Sun, 18 Aug 2019 06:00:00
