Ran into a former student/runner of mine who graduated from Alta in 2007 and her dog. Spent a few minutes chatting on the trail. She and her husband expecting their first child in January. Still running 40-50 miles/week. Love those experiences.</p> Tue, 11 Aug 2020 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 10, 2020 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-10-2020.html <p>Rest day.

The school district pushed back the start of school on week so we teachers have two full weeks of prep time before students arrive. It will be good to get back.
