6 miles this morning. Ran a couple miles before practice with the team. Lots of kids are showing up so I am very happy. This should be a great season.

6 more miles this evening. I ran into Santa Clara and back later this evening. Just getting in the miles. Felt a little sluggish.

6 miles this morning. Did a little before practice and then the rest with the team. Still a good group coming out.

Rest of the day was busy with homework, parent meeting, and a school board meeting so only one run today.

Ran with the Circle again. It has been a few weeks. Happy to get out again on a cool morning. Did a little with the team at practice. Good morning of running. Probably will go out again later this afternoon.

6 miles this morning.

6.60 miles this evening. I took the truck in to get "new" tires and then ran home from the auto place. Decided I needed to push it a little tonight. I ran from Bluff and then all along Sunset through Santa Clara and back home. I was sub-6:00/mile for the first 4 and then just relaxed the last 2 miles. 6:22/mile. Nothing fancy but it felt good to push the legs for a little bit.

Easy 4 miles with some of the kids this morning. I did another .50 mile running around while the tires on the truck got squared away.

6 more miles this evening after taking care of two sick kids for most of the day.

Ran from my house and hit the trails across the street from the Jacob Hamblin house. I ran all the way over to the Green Valley Gap. I forgot how much fun it was to run on those trails. I was cruising along and all of a sudden my foot caught a rock and I took a good little tumble. Luckily my handheld was with me because it helped brace my fall. The downside was my lid came off and most of my water was gone. I survived and can live to tell about it. Great day to be out running. Perfect weather.

Hit a decent week for what I could do. Kids were sick most of the week and I had a ton of homework for school. Hope to get a little more next week though.

In honor of those running Ragnar this weekend, I had 5 roadkills of mountain bikers this morning. Loved it. Blew by them like they were standing still.
