AM - 9.25 Twix/PV.  Ran a bit with Twix and then with the team as they did a nice quick workout to get prepped for State.  Rolled and abs.  (Peg green 95.5)

AM - 9.25 Parkway/AC.  Longer run with Twix on the Parkway today as practice was shorter and later this morning.  Then a 20 minute run with the team.  Finished up with rolling and abs.  I am having all sorts of weird pains in my legs and arms the last few days; just sore spots that I am not sure why they are hurting.  (Peg black33 379.25)

evening - 4 Sandy. Usual pre-State run at the park/MS in Sandy and some easy paced striders. Still not trusting the hamstrings too much to actually push the pace. The team seems in good spirits and ready to do good things tomorrow. (Peg black33 383.25)

morning - 9 SLC.  Ran a bit with Robs and Decker and then a little with the team before leaving the hotel.  (Peg green 104.5)

Ran around a lot at the meet (as usual).  Things went pretty well.  I really couldn't say what I expected out of the State meet this year.  Obviously you want to win.  But at the same time, there are times you wonder if that is going to happen.  So we really focused our goal on giving our best effort for the day.  And in that way, I think we really did well.  Not everyone's race was his/her best... but the all gave the best they could today.  Of course, it is very cool to take state with the girls (back to back - but really 3 in a row; I'll never let it go totally!).  Equally proud of the guys even though we came up just short of the title, again (3rd straight 2nd); like I told them, bummed we didn't win, but not disappointed at all.  Good kids.  Good coaches I get to work with.

AM - no practice this morning (especially good after getting home at nearly midnight last night - the powers that be have no clue about the toll that driving all over the state takes on a body; and we had to get up and come to school; why can't State be on a Friday?).  So anyway, took the dogs for a good walk.

afternoon - 8 River Run.  Hit the run in reverse today.  Plenty warm out for mid October.  Tired, but the pace was honest.  (Peg Oly 433)

AM - walk with the dogs. 

afternoon - 8.5 Sullivan. Ran up the River Trail. Good run. The cooler temps made it a lot easier than yesterday. (Boston 137)

morning - 3 DM. Walk with the dogs. Then took Twix up for a bit on the Dirt Mile after going a little with the little girls.  Then as I finished, Al was walking Molly; so Twix and I joined for some more walking  (Cumulus 349.5)

afternoon - 15 Rim Trail.  Planned on going more this afternoon without the dog on some trail  so when I finally got out, I went over to Hurricane and ran the Rim Trail.  It is one of my faves.  Went clear out to the rock pit. I felt pretty good and the temps were nice. A nice and much needed 2 hours out in the dirt.  (Sense 300.5)
