10 miles from the house looping through Bloomington and to the Calvary Chapel. Cooler temps but it did warm up after I got started. Dang stomach muscle doesn't want to get better.

6.75 miles this afternoon. Blazing hot today. 70+ degrees made 800m Webb Hills repeats memorable. Happy with how the TEAM did today. Lots of positive vibes going on. Very happy.

Had some funerals to plan around this morning. Sad to see great people go but always nice to reflect on the great things they did in their life.

Didn't get out until later in the afternoon and it was quite warm. 70+ degrees for February 3rd. Crazy! I ran from the house and went out along Navajo Dr. towards the Bloomington Cave. I cannot believe how many people are out on that trail. It is nice to see so many people using it but the trash is out of control. Please clean up your trash people. Enjoyed the run and didn't stress too much about the pace. 7:34/mile for just over 15 miles. Thought about a lot of things on my run. I wish I had a few more people to run with. Always fun to run with others.

Wish my stomach muscle would release so I am not in constant pain. I think I just am getting old.

10 miles this morning along the River Trail. Cannot complain about 40 degree weather. Good stuff.

7.5 miles total this afternoon. 3x1000m, 4x400m progression finishes, and 2x200m finishes. Did this with some of the girls I don't usually run with. Lots of 9th graders who are working hard. Love it.

Today was an extremely memorable day. We took some of our runners to run the West Rim Trail in Zion. I was slightly nervous about snow but it worked out okay. We got the vehicles stuck in snow when we first got up there so we got some cross training in trying to push them out. It was snowing a little bit and cold so I started to get a little nervous. We said a prayer and decided to go for it.

We started the run at Lava Point and had the first mile in about a foot of snow. Some of the kids weren't excited but they really started to enjoy it. After a mile, we hit nothing but great trails the rest of the way. We stopped a couple times for some incredible pics but we just enjoyed being out in nature and having so much fun with each other. We actually saw 4 hikers who were going the opposite direction. They were surprised to see 20+ runners. We were just as surprised to see them.

We had a little bit of wind and cooler temps but we saw some cool things. Great views of Zion, 3 elk (one huge bull), and a leg of a deer (bear or cougar) probably ate it. Freaked the kids out a little bit so they picked up the pace :)

We came up above Angel's Landing just as it was getting dark so we hammered the last 2 miles down. 17 miles total. We went a little longer than planned due to the snow but the kids were nothing but smiles afterward. So much fun and one of the best experiences I have had in a long time. Crazy to think we ran this on February 10th without a ton of snow. Amazing!

Easy 2 miles this morning to loosen up the calves.

6.5 miles total this afternoon. 20x200m @ goal pace with the TEAM in the rain. It was nice to have rain because we need it so bad. Funny to see St. George kids think rain and 45 degrees is freezing.

6.5 miles this afternoon. Supposed to do the workout on the track but the soccer tournament is in town. Yeah! Did the workout along River Road and it went well. Dealt with some adversity and adjustment and everyone did well.

Katey went to breakfast with some of her friends so I didn't start my run until later. Started from the house and planned to loop around the Airport Parkway. Lots of rolling hills and climbs. Needed to do a 20+ mile run since I haven't done one in a while. Felt pretty good throughout. Saw Trinity and Gage biking along with John Powell. They were nice enough to give me some fluids. I had to stop at the park to soak my hat and shirt because I was so warm. Crazy weather right now. Saw a ton of bikers who kept saying, "Looking good" and "Good job." I just replied with "Thanks."

Got through a Parade of Homes mess and released that if I ran all the way home that it would have been close to 26 miles. More than I wanted to do today so I ran to my Dad's house. My grandparents happened to be there so I caught a ride with them and then came home. Got Myla in the jogging stroller and had Oliver tag along on his bike for 2 more miles through Bloomington. 

22.5 total. 7:15/mile. Happy with this run. Wish my stomach would feel better so I can start doing some speed work. I need to do better with my mornings but I am moving in the right direction.

Had a few honeydos around the house this morning so the TEAM ran without me. Duty calls. Got some ceiling fans up and finished up some painting. Glad I was inside due to the snow. Yes, it snowed! 15 minutes later the sun came out. The kids were a little disappointed.

Got out and ran from the house over to SunRiver. Felt really good for some reason on this run. Maybe putting up ceiling fans helps me out with my running. 12 total miles and felt really good on the way back so I pushed the last 4 miles as a mini progression run. Low 6:00s and then finished off with a 5:58 mile. 6:50/mile overall. Really happy with how the run went. Great start to the week.

A few miles before meeting up with the TEAM. We ran a big section of the Dirty Hurty Half this marathon. Lots of great discussion along with beautiful weather and scenery. You cannot beat the view over there. Some of my favorite trails around. 13 miles total. Hoped to get more in but had important family stuff. Another great week.
