AM: Ran downhill for 20ish minutes, turned around and ran uphill for 30ish minutes. On this run I switched between different runners to help them up those steep hills. Helping others made it so I wasn't a wuss on the uphills. With each runner I told them to use their affirmations they created at the camp workshop with the captains and then again with Amber Green. It was great to practice something we learned at camp. 5.16 miles

All in all camp was an amazing experience! The kids had a great time and the team is meshing together perfectly! Excited for the season! 

PM: Drove to Tropic Reservoir to be with Marieta and her family. We ran the skunk creek trail for 40 minutes. 4.27 miles

So obviously I thought I signed up for the all downhill course. That dang fire changed the Parowan course! Instead of starting up by Yankee Meadow the race started 6 miles up Highway 143. The first 6 miles were nice, scenic and downhill. 7-13 not so much! It wasn't the worst course but I got bored running through all the neighborhoods. I stopped pushing after mile 8 and let my fat man persona take over.

AM: Set out to run 10 with Marieta this morning. Her knee has been hurting so we ended up doing some grass running at Snow Canyon middle. 3.9 miles 

PM: Ran in the storm! Crazy rain, wind, and mud slides. Ran from DSU to diagonal, hit the parkway and hopped onto city creek trail. City creek had a creek running through it. Toon city creek to Owens loop then back on the parkway and home. Couldn't have asked for a better run to end the summer. 10.21

Ran with level 3 guys today. Out to Green Springs, Middleton, Pioneer Pkwy, and even on the boulevard. I ran with them mainly to get more mileage. My guys turned around and I wanted to go longer so I did. It felt good to go a faster pace than I'm used to on an easy run. 8.2 miles

AM: 75 with JD, Tyler, Boston, and Piper. Some others were mixed in a long the way but that is the group I ended with. 8.07 miles 

PM: 30 minute run with Korbin, Caleb, and Jason. 3.27 miles 

PM 2: I changed the oil in my car and got a little dirty. My body told me to go out for another jog so I listened. I've been debating on dropping out of the marathon due to lack of mileage (mainly on saturdays). I'll give it a good go over the next couple of weeks with no pressure then I'll make a decision maybe a week or two before the big day. 3.19 miles
