Was gonna do a long bike ride w Parker & Collin but had to change to a run due to bike problems. Since I was already up in North Lehi at Collins house I decided to do Jail Trail backwards. Been a fat minute since I've been there. It was a ton of fun. There are so many different paths and its such a great time. Was sweating bullets! It was a hot one this morning.

Ran with Collin aka Salt boy. We ran over to skyridge to see if the xc team was there, they weren't. I told him how the night before I was thinking about how I was itching to run fast and wanted to do a 400. He joined in. I got 57.xx and he ran 58 high. It hurt haha but it was so much fun. Wrecked me for the rest of the run tho. We then ran down to the creek to see if the team was there, they weren't. Ran back up to his house, the Eaglecrest hill killed me haha.

Alpine Loop. Haha very memorable time. Going up, I realized I hadn't ate dinner the night before and I could feel my body shutting down. There was a guy up at the top who was an answer to prayers and offered me some food #praisethelord Saw Dan and his group at the top. Got to Murdock and started to feel awful. Barely made it to the twins house and the angel Mama Hinckley let me have a bunch of food before I passed out. Good times.

3 mile warm up and then 3x400 with a goal of 65's. I hit 66/62/61. I wasn't trying to crush the 2nd and 3rd but the first one took enough out of me I thought I was going to have to push really hard to hit 65 and they ended up being faster.

Alpine Loop. Brought food this time. Hamstrings and calves were sore after yesterdays 400s, probably one of my slower times up to the summit. Took a few pics, enjoyed the ride. Late start time so it was hot by the time I finished.

On the way down to St George I stopped in Beaver to do the ride that Bri suggested. It was super beautiful. I couldnt believe how pretty it was so close to Beaver. Got about 13 miles up. Then met a cool funny guy from Vegas. He swam for NAU in the 90's and talked about meeting all these Olympic athletes who trained in Flagstaff at the time.

Turkey Farm Loop: Not a far ride but still a good one. 10 miles out climbing into the middle of the desert so I named it Desert Warfare: Turkey Farm loop. This was the route that Dan suggested. First gravel ride with the bike and it was a lot of fun.

Veyo Loop. Started in Ivins, just past Santa Clara. Then thru Snow Canyon State Park which was super beautiful! Down into Veyo which was right at 14 miles and 1 hour. Over to Gunlock Reservoir. I pulled off and jumped in a few times which was super fun. Gotta do fun things like that. Sweet ride, definitely doing it each time I'm in St George.

Beaver to Eagle Point. I underestimated how hard it would be to bike at 10k ft. And not only was it just biking at 10k, the steepness never let up. Cardio wasn't bad, it was just so hard on my legs. Wasn't sure if they were going to be able to make it all the way. Crazy finish to 4 really strong days of biking in a row.

Alpine Loop. Legs were still super tired but with a nicer bike and in better shape, I made it up about 10 minutes faster than before.

My first Century ride!! I went into the ride planning on doing 85 miles. I started at my house, biked over to Collins, and started the regular Alpine Loop. Although this time I went up to Tibble Fork for the first time and I rode up South Fork for the first time. I met these two guys up at the top who were cool. One of the guys lives in Saratoga and was like you gotta do the gauntlet: Granite Flats, Alpine, Cascade, SF, & Squaw. That would be a sick ride. Adding it to the list. When I got back to Saratoga and was riding past the Jordan River trail I thought to myself: I'm already gonna be at 85, why not just add some more and make it a century? So I went and added some mileage on the JR trail. It wasn't very fun haha. It was getting sooooo hot and the whole way back from the Windmills was into a headwind. I was starting to really bonk so I called up my parents and my dad brought me two gatorades. That helped me feel a lot better and I slowly made it past the Maverick, added on some a mile or so to get over 100, and climbed the hill to my house! :) 101 miles and 5600 ft of gain
