12.2 miles / 3.1mile warmup, 5k, 6 mile run home. over a five week period i've run my best half marathon and one of my worse 5k's. i couldn't push at all today. maybe because i've been sick the last couple of weeks. when the first mile came in @ 7:32 i knew i was done. felt great on the run home though. grateful to be able to run miles. Annie ran too ~ a huge pr for her today as she's been putting in some consistency the last several weeks preparing for her first half marathon in september! met Kam for the first time, right before the race.

 just one quick rant in the form of an observation ~ folks around here (davis county?) need to lighten up a little. everybody seems to be uptight, or nervous or something. are things really that bad nowadays? i feel like i'm missing out on some tragic news that everyone else is privy too.

6 miles. i slept an extra hour this morning, then mowed the lawn, and chilled with my wife for a couple of hours before finally getting out for the run. 90+ degrees at noon. drove to the bird refuge and ran one loop on the buffalo ranch trail, then a loop at the bird refuge. lots of birds, bugs, and rustlings in the brush. at one point there was a huge rustling, and what should pop up in front of me but a doe; a deer, a female deer. love it when that happens.

16.3 miles - soapstone basin - uintas. had a great over night trip. Thayne invited me to come up and camp with his family and do a long run in the morning. even though it was just one night, i love doing stuff like this. to me it's worth the effort of packing up the gear and making the drive - it gives life a little more texture. anyway, our original plan was to drive out 20 miles and run back to camp, then go back and pick up the car afterwards. however after about eight miles of driving on the soapstone basin road we realized that this run was going to be much tougher than we anticipated. plus the drive was taking a long time as driving on rocky, washboard makes for slow going. we came off the dirt road and drove a couple of miles up a highway, and parked. starting the run just over 10 miles from camp. we decided to run some out and backs along the way to add more mileage to the run, and that worked out pretty well. after seeing the terrain we would be running on, very steep. long climbs and descents, we adjusted our plan to an 18 mile run, (which was ultimately adjusted to 16 miles).  we were at about 9,500 hundred feet at the start and dropped over 1,000 feet in the first two miles, then gained back over 700 feet over the next two miles. a great way to start a run. did i mention we were in the uintas? beautiful, beautiful, mountainous meadows. we stayed at around 9,000 ft over the next three and a half miles, rolling up and down, throwing in a couple of short out and backs on suitable roads along the way. then slowly descended to 7600+ feet over the next 7.5 miles with an almost 200 ft climb in the last mile back to the campsite. 16.3 miles, 3+ hours of running at altitude with plenty of climbing and descending...in the uinta's! all around awesome run! our slowest mile was 14:45, out fastest was 9:12. ended up with an 11:32 pace over the distance, including all stops etc. didn't think about pace at all today. walked some of the steeper sections, stopped many times along the way for bladder control, rock from shoe removal etc. great relaxing longish run. thanks Thayne!

edit: i forgot to mention sitting in the river after the run. never tried that before, it felt super good on the legs.

Total Distance

1/2 mile warmup. 10k (45:42). 4 mile cool down. good race for me. a pr (aided - lots of downhill). all my race time these days are both old man PR's and lifetime PR's as i don't have any PR's from when i was young. anyway, i figured to place in the top 20% as that seems to be my lot in life. based on past figures, i figured about 2,000 runners, so i tried to start behind about 400 people. i don't know the official results yet, but i must have been way off on my count because i steadily passed other runners throughout the whole course. i think that i can still improve my time a lot over the next couple of years. this was my first time running des news. good race. the weather was great, low 70's and overcast. after the race i saw fellow bloggers Walter, and Kam. also met for the first time Glidergirl, Catherine and Faceless Ghost. i was going to run back to the start at research park for a cool down  but on the way out of liberty park i saw the shuttle bus and couldn't resist getting a ride back to my car.. on my drive out of salt lake though, i stopped at the capitol and ran a 4 mile cool down through the horse shoe and along 11th ave, then back. splits for race: 7:43, 7:12, 7:19, 7:10, 7:13, 7:20, .2@7:08 pace.

WT 54.4 miles

two twelve

edit: my official time of 45:41.9 gets me 349/1945 overall (18 %), and 18/84 AG (21%) what did i tell you. i'm the 20% man. almost any race i run where i know the total number of runners i can pretty accurately guess where i placed using the 20% rule. however, if it weren't for the entrants that are just trying to finish the distance, or are entered to have an enjoyable walk, i would place somewhere around 50%. yipee mediocrity! lol.

12 miles / 9:20 avg. before work. meandered my way up to emerald park for a drink (7.5 miles) then took a more direct route back to work. started late (8:15 am) and it got pretty toasty. also there was some kind of mini triathlon going on, and they had the nerve to use parts of my running route for their event, so i got a little race environment vibe in the first part my jog.
