Had a real nice evening run, and cranked out 7 miles, I wore a reflective vest, but only the vest. Note to self: Don't do that again, it causes nipple chaffing. I also played capture the flag for FHE for a solid hour and a half, and I'm counting that as a mile.

Nice hot afternoon run, as well as a cool morning run. Going to the jazz summer league game today, it should be a blast!!!

It was really hard to get out on this run, but I did, and it was a hot sweaty one. I also took a nice moment at the turn around point to just stop and think, it was really refreshing and good for my soul

6x800 meter workout. I did well, all of my times were under 2:34 except for the first one I was a little slow, just getting into the groove I guess. I'm excited for the race this weekend!

What a great race!! I was pumped to hit my goal time, I feel like I'm right on track for my marathon goal, this was a very encouraging sign. Lots of work still to do, but the goal feels a lot more possible now. I started out strong and smooth, and pretty relaxed. The first mile was a little slow at 5:50 pace, but the next mile picked up quite a bit, and mile 3 was a 5:10. From there I was pretty consistantly under 5:30 until the last 2 or 3 miles, at that point I was just fighting to stay under 5:40, and just finish the race strong. I took 5th place, which was great because I won $100. I really wanted to beat Golden, but he got me by about a minute. The good thing is that he's also doing the St. George Marathon, so I'll have a chance to beat him there as well. I'm super sore, but it's totally worth it.

beginning the recovery process. My calves are super tight, but that's ok, I'm just easing back into things. I was also blessed because Glen Harris let me borrow a recover system that has helped a ton!
