Like the founder of this blog, my name is Sasha. I live in Utah most of the time, but sometimes I live in other places. My partner in life and running is a year-old blue heeler (ACD).

I most prefer to run in the forest, but anywhere is fine. I don't usually train for anything in particular. I just like to run.

Second long run down the Burr Trail. It's a nice place for me to extend my distance because it's paved but still beautiful, and challenging (downhill out, uphill back!). My initial goal was to run to the cattle guard and back-- abt 7.8 miles round trip-- since that's the longest I've done in a while. Ended up going a bit further and I think ended up between 9.5 and 10 miles round trip. I had never run so far except when I did my half marathon in Knoxville a few years ago, so to just be able to pound that out with minimal stress felt awesome. I'm starting to reap the benefits of long-term running.

After the run, met the parents of a dude I've been seeing for the first time. Way harder than running 10 miles. I think I should stick to what I'm good at :x

Shake out after work to stretch and think for a minute. It's getting crisp in the afternoons.

confusing run down deer creek. cows had been run through. I am hoping this was more than 2.7, because it took me about 40 min. It very well might be; I can't ever tell how far I run when I run in the desert.

lower calf creek falls & back. the GSENM website says this is 5.84 but trailhead says 3 each way. whatever. I added the run from the parking lot and my requisite "lose the trail, run up a wash, dead end." usually adds at least .25mi. took me about 70min

random run down hole in the rock road. turned on to a dirt road and ran around until I found highway 12. the autumn weather has me in a low-energy mood lately -.- kept my normal, loping 10min-ish pace.


thinking of the Moab trail marathon next November, preceded by the Top of Utah half in august. I hear logan is pretty that time of year.

Out and back down the Draw rd. Wiped from Thanksgiving! Took a week off after this to recuperate from the season and particpate in the season's-end festivities. They were quite tiring.
