AM- I woke up early but wasn't feeling it for a run. I eventually drove myself out to the AZ strip. I ran out towards Little Black Mtn. On my way back I did pick ups of 1,2,3 & 1,2,3. I mainly did this because I wanted the run to be over faster since it was getting hot. 7.03 miles

PM- Weights at my parents and saw the girls out running. 

PM- 6 mile loop with Metler. We talked about NBA free agency and many other things. The time went by fast and the heat was bad but bearable. I averaged a 7:33 mile pace. That isn't saying much I know, but it’s been a while since I’ve ran that pace. 5.96 miles

PM- Ran a section forest to get to my cabin. I overestimated how long it was. 1.56 miles 

 
PM2- Ran from the Wolf Creek resort up SR-158. Then I found a wolf creek trail and some of deer/moose highways to run on. I climbed a lot and crushed on the downhills. Probably a good way to get ready for Bryce. 7.14 miles

Tackled Ben Lomond Peak this morning. I obviously didn’t run the whole way up because I didn’t want to burn out early. My goal was to run on any flat or slight uphill areas. The peak was awesome and I really enjoyed the climb! Then I crushed it on the way back down the mountain. 15 miles total, I’d say I ran 11 of it. Hard to say with those uphills. 2 gopher snakes on the trail bringing my total to 5. 11 miles (running)

After a long drive from Ogden to the cabin I got out and ran just a little bit. My legs felt really tired, probably from the driving. I wish I would have gotten up early and gone this morning.  3.26 miles

Marieta got sick from partying too hard with her family all week. So naturally there was no sleep to be had the night before the Bryce half. I was up until 2am and needed to leave around 4:30 to make it to the race. I threw in the towel on the race and just decided to run from the cabin. It turned out pretty good! I explored Harris Flat and almost got run over by some pronghorn. Also 6 snakes for the week. 10.42 miles

AM- Made some dumb mistakes today. I thought I was ready for sand hill but as soon as we got going I felt tired and nauseous. Then as I passed the main water tank road Zack, Keaton, Kenny, and Wesley were coming down. I should have gone with them from the beginning. They told me how some of the other kids ran the wrong route. Had I been there I could’ve pointed them in the right direction. 7.02 miles 

PM- Went out around 4pm and did a little 4 mile loop. 4.02 miles

Lone Mtn to Bonanza trail. I mixed in 3 1-min tempos, 3 1-min threshold then 5 30 second CVs. Finished off 3 threshold and 3 tempo. I ran a 6:45-7:00 pace for tempos. 6:35-6:45 for thresholds and 6:05-6:20 for CVs. I had some favorable downhills so I focused on effort instead of the pace on my watch. I got really overheated towards the end of the run. I blame Vegas! 8.01 miles

PM- Weights were disappointing as far as the turn out but fun with the kids and Roberts. Then on the run I pushed to stay up with Tyler, Matt, Jason, and Carter. Added a little with Marieta after that. She hated the heat. 5.05 miles

AM- Hopped on the VRRT from our camp site.  I took the lead once we crossed the Webster Flat road per request of JD. A couple of minutes later I tripped and popped right back up.  I have bad sinuses today and that made breathing hard. 5.13 miles 

PM- Ran another easy 25. The team was out to help each other after some great capain meetings. It was fun to see! 2.58 miles

AM- Ran from camp and headed back out on the VRRT (love that trail). My focus was to help "Chad" out. He did awesome and turned around about 30 minutes into the run.  I decided to press on vs head back with Nathan.  Then I caught up to Roberts and the girls.  I took a little lead and Keaton followed and passed me. I encouraged him to press on and I followed him all the way to the van at Te-Ah campground.  I ran well and I was very impressed by Keaton. Our run was about 100 minutes and had some good climbs. We even ran a little extra once we got to the van. The rain was nice!  I added a little once we got back to camp to make sure everyone was back. 10.71 miles 

PM- Muddy and fun 20 with the team. Everyone was goofing around in the mud and rain. I am very proud to be a part of this team! 2.52 miles
