AM - 11 River Run.  Extended the run out into the Fields and across the bridge.  Good run... no issues with the hammies, and we had a good quick pace.  Rolled and abs.  (Boston 98)

AM - 8 Snow Canyon.  Out and back on the SC Parkway before going up to aid station the marathon.  Pace was nice and quick and I just felt good.  I've always enjoyed running out there.  Had a good time at the marathon. Fun seeing some old buddies out doing their thing.  (Boston 112.75)

Goals for next week: Probably just kinda keep life about where it is at.  I think I might try and run the Snow Canyon Half.

morning - 35 min walk with the dog. It is a nice way to start the day after being able to sleep in a bit. Plan on running a bit longer this afternoon, so no need to double, but I do feel bad when Twix only gets a walk - she lives to run. 

afternoon - 15.25 Chuckwalla/Temple Quarry. Met up with the girls team and ran to the overlook and back. Had a good chat with Robs - such a great guy. When we finished, I ran up the paved trail along the marathon course (always a beast). Then a quick drive down to Temple Quarry. I was a bit tired and was near the back. I eventually turned early and finished up on the road by the old airport. Long run for me, pretty tired, hammies held up pretty well. (Peg Oly 425)

morning - 30 minute walk with both dogs and Laney and Elin.

noon - 8.25 BHNP. Met a little earlier today with the girls and ran a workout with them. They did a great job, and it feels as if they are ready to roll next week. 

afternoon - 7.5 BHNP. Met up with the boys. Warmed and cooked with them and ran around throughout the workout to encourage them. They also looked really strong today. (Boston 128.5)

morning - 8.25 North Desert. Not too bad. A bit tired from the last couple days. Left hammy feeling decent. Right hammy a bit skiddish the last couple days. Twix enjoyed being out in the desert. (Peg green 86.25)

My running was okay this week. It has been a long week in some ways. Glad we had a long weekend.
