Jeremy ranch is even more beautiful than o remember it being. My new job in park city is really close to the trail so I will likely be doing Jeremy ranch pretty often this summer, hopefully the whole thing by sometime on July. The road was a little harder than I remember it being but my Achilles aren't complaining too much, I will find out the real damage in the morning. But yeah solid day, if I can keep this up I can get a 40+ mile week!

Easy run at the pari, ankles weren't feeling too grey and it was very hot.

Took the day off because my ankles weren't feeling good and I've been learning I need to listen to and take care of my body better. I iced 3 or 4 times as well as hot tubbed.

Awesome run with tayte, my first back to mountain running, I held up ok! Tayte is doing a lot of awesome things and I'm really excited to see him compete internationally this year! We ran up bell canyon, it was challenging, its always great training when we run up there. My ankles held up very well, in part because of my nifty mountain running shoes haha. Great way to start off the day! If my ankles are feeling good enough I might to the gully long run tomorrow, I might even go for a couple easy miles later today! Feeling good! Feels like I'm finally back to running. 5 year anniversary of my first sub 5:00 mile!
