Ran from my house in Ivins out along Snow Canyon Parkway for 5 miles and then came back home. I ran into a lot of people running. This was nice to see. I kept it nice and easy and hit 7:06/mile.

Another easy 4 miles this evening in Ivins. A little cool tonight. No watch.

Did a new variation of the DC trail today. I ran the inside loop backwards from the high school and then extended it over to Man of War and then back to the school. The first couple miles were a touch slow but I had planned on pushing it for the last 10. I ended up averaging 6:21/mile. Nice push for early in the week.

10 this morning with Clyde, Dave, and Steve. We did our usual loop. It was nice having Steve back with us. It truly was a pleasure. Felt pretty good throughout except for the spinach dinner from last night.

10 more miles this afternoon out towards to the new airport. I ran with the kids for 2 miles and then extended it out onto the parkway. Not a ton of traffic but lots of wind. I do not like wind. It is not my friend. Averaged 7:19/mile. Happy with a pretty solid day of running.

I was crazy tired this morning for some reason. I decided to go longer this afternoon. I did my Bloomington Loop extension/DC trail run today. I wanted to get some up tempo miles but nothing crazy out of control. I hit some decent miles and averaged 6:33/mile. A little on the cool side this afternoon.

Paul Petersen ran 2:20:31 and placed 55th at the Olympic Trials. He is my hero. It is fun to think back to 2007 when I was in New York running in the 2008 Olympic Trials with him. I didn't have a great day but Paul did. His race today is even more impressive to me. 4 years later and he is still rocking it. The guy is so humble and gracious about this sport. I look up to him a lot. I will miss running with him in Logan when I visit my in-laws. Congrats Paul!

Dogtown/Lots of hills run - Ran with Steve, Clyde, Dave and Justin today. We started at Dave's house and then went out into the fields, down by Stone Cliff, over Foremaster and then back around. We had some pretty conversation about topics that were quite delicate. I really look forward to running with the guys because it is a great place to just talk about life. Dave and I extended for another 5 miles to get 20 for the day. Nice way to end the week. Happy to get in 90 for week. 7:00/mile. Fair amount of hills today. Felt good for the little Quadsimodo.
