I am in Logan for the next four days spending time with Katey's family. It should be a lot of fun. I was shocked with how warm it was when I started my run today. I ran from the in-laws up into Smithfield. It was a nice out and back. A little hilly which is what I need to be doing more of. 10 miles total.

Another warm day in Logan. Love it! I ran from the in-laws, down the Canyon Rd. and then over to River Heights Elementary. 6:53/mile. I almost took the shirt off but I did not want to scare the women and children.

Same run as Monday except it snowed a little bit. It was actually more like rain but enjoyable none the less.

One last run in Logan. It was 46 degrees when I went out. I did the same run over to River Heights Elementary. I cannot believe how warm it is.

I was supposed to run with Dave this morning but my alarm did not go off. Sorry Dave. Lame excuse. I knew I was in for a long haul all by myself. I started over in Virgin and then did the Hurricane Rim Trail, Jem Trail, Goulds Trail, and extended on to the Goulds Rim Trail. I almost made it down to the highway for the first 15 miles. I passed some mountain bikers on the way down and decided I was going to catch them. I had a good one mile climb and then caught them after about two miles. It was fun chasing them down. I passed a ton of mountain bikers today. The temps were 61 degrees when I ran so I shed the shirt. It was just a great day for a run. I felt great until about 26 miles and then my body decided to shut down. The last 4 were a bit of a drudge fest but I survived. 

I really needed to get home but I forgot to turn off my lights in the truck so it was dead. I had to wait around for about 5 minutes and some mountain bikers came and helped me jump start it. One of them asked me, "Do you know Clyde Behunin?" I replied, "Who doesn't know him?" They noticed my running center sticker and said that they thought I might run with him. I talked to them and found out they are his cousins. Small world! A big thank you to the Behunin Family (Clyde was there in spirit) for the assistance.

Happy with a solid 30 mile run. I realize I need to eat more on my longer runs. I noticed that I drank plenty of fluids but I need to just eat more. I burned 7,440 calories so I will spend the rest of the day eating and relaxing. I love the holiday break!
