5.5 in the morning before work. Some normal Monday aches and pains but I felt good after getting into it. I got off work a little earlier today so I threw in another 6 with the guys on the ridge. Good stuff!

Slept in so I got out in the afternoon for my run before heading up north for Thanksgiving. It was weird because I was working all morning, then we went to Don Pedro's to eat lunch around noon and I at some good mexican food, so when I started running at about 1:30 I felt like I was going soooooo slow. I had all that food in my stomach and I was tired from work so I was thinking that I would go through the first mile at 8:30 pace or something like that, but I hit the first mile and it said 6:30. Haha, it's crazy because I do the same run pretty much every morning, and I always feel like I'm going super fast, but I've never come through that first mile in the morning faster than like 6:45ish. I think Don Pedro put something in my chimichanga. Good run, I felt pretty good and really didn't have any stomach problems until like the last 100m of my run.

6.5 mile loop around my grandma's neighborhood with Alex, my brother-in-law, up here in Sandy. It was a great to spend time with family and eat some good food. I'm thankful for all of the little things that make life so good. Happy thanksgiving everyone!

Good Saturday long run. Pretty much the same run as last week but we started from the road which added on a couple more miles. I had a great time running with an old thunder-cat-turned-thunder-bird. The blogosphere might know him as Ducote, but I know him as Sagebrush. A didgeri-dang good time with that pal. We’ll meet again on the battlefield one of these days. 

I went to Zion later with some other high school pals and now my legs are trashed! Tomorrow will be a solid recovery day.
