afternoon - 14 2xCity Creek.  No run this morning, but a longer walk with the dog and Elin.  Then practice at the State times this afternoon.  Both runs did City Creek trail with the beginning on the Owens Loop.  In between I ran out on the the T-Bone for a few miles.  The run with the girls was good and Robs and I had a good chat as we chilled in the back.  Then with the boys I showed my age and fell off the pace a bit.  Up hills are still quite hard on my achilles; it has, however, improved quite a bit.  (Speedgoat 298.75)

morning - long walk with Twix. 

noon - 10 White Reef. This trail is one of my favs. Has a similar feel to Prospector, but just up above Red Cliffs, so some different scenery. Felt good. Achilles has been improving. (Peg grey 580.25)

AM - 6.25 Twix/AC.  Short walk and decent run with the dog.  Shorter run for practice this morning.  Abs.  I shouldn't have said that my achilles was improving, because it is wretched today.  Took nearly 4 miles to warm up and still hurts.  (Ravenna 642.5)

evening - 3.5 SLC. Some grass loops at the park near the hotel. (Peg NOP 77.5)

AM - Long walk with Twix after getting home from a very succesful state championships.  Boys 1st, girls 2nd.  Both teams 5th overall in the Utah merge.

afternoon - 8 Green Springs.  Group was kind fractured all over the place today.  My group wasn't pushing as hard as some, and I'm pretty sure it was me that was holding them back.  (Peg NOP 92.5)

AM - long walk with Twix.

afternoon - 8.75 River Trail.  We got supremely pranked today by Christian Allen of Weber St. He said he was a new kid moving into our school and we were pretty stoked about what that might do for us heading into Nike.  But a little into the run, some of the team (Ry, Jess, Jose) thought he looked exactly like Carson's friend from Weber.  I put those pieces together with the fact that he didn't answer me when I called his name earlier and we decided it was a prank.  But he had the top guys going through the whole run.  It was pretty good stuff.  When we finished and he was telling the guys, I heard him say he went to Copper Hills, his name came right back to me and I totally remembered him.  I'm still laughing about it.  (Peg Purple 290)

afternoon - 10 Black Ridge.  I've always wondered about this trail off the freeway going up the Black Ridge, and last week Decker mentioned it as well.  So, today I went up there and went exploring.  The trail isn't too bad in most places and is very runnable.  A couple places the lava is pretty tough, but very limited areas.  Really enjoyed the run and saw some cool stuff - some pretty blue birds that had a wierd call I'd never heard, a huge trantula as large as my hand, and an enormous gopher snake with beautiful golden color and brown markings (it was over 5 feet long!).  Toward the end of the run I was feeling pretty blah, but I enjoyed the run and the new trail.  (Peg green 416.25)

AM - 5.75 Twix/Halls.  Short walk with Twix and then a little run as I watched the storm roll in.  Got to practice just in time for the storm to hit - lots of lightening and rain.  So, we had to run in the halls.  I usually don't run in the halls with the team, but joined them today.  Abs after.  (Peg blue 637.5)

afternoon - 10.5 Sand Hill.  Drove over to the desert and ran Sand Hill for the first time since the summer.  The sand was in great condition because of the plethera of rain today.  This plus the great shape the kids are in led to some amazing times.  I was a ways back and still hit a 9:40 up and 5:30 down.  Julien went 7:30 up and Jess went 10:40 up!  Crazy fast stuff.  Cooled by heading up City Wells and then across Dino Tracks; I was trashed.  (Ravenna 353)

morning - 10 Junction. Good paced run out toward the highway junction. Haven’t run out here in awhile. Pace was good, cadence was good, had a little more zip than all week, but achilles wasn’t super swell at first. (Peg NOP 110)

AM - 6 Twix/AC.  Short walk and run with Twix.  Then practice.  Have been working on my cadence again.  Hit 170 both Saturday and this morning.  I don't know how people are up at 180+.  (Peg green 426.25)

afternoon - 7 Old Man.  Ran over with the team to do some hill circuits.  Ran a little with them here and there and also did a little bit of bounding to help them out, but didn't want to anger the achilles too much.  Then ran back with the boys the long way to get all our minutes.  (Peg NOP 117)
