AM- Old Foremaster Loop. Not sure how we ended up doing the loop but I'm blaming Jason. Had good conversations with Brecken, Elle, and Kate.

AM- A little on my own then 25 with the boys. 4.51 miles 

PM- Some speed play on the back grass. I broke some of the plastic pieces off my watch while trying to replace a band. So I was running around with my watch taped to my wrist. I'm not sure what my long term solution will be. I couldn't see my pace or anything so I was just out there running with the girls. I would run an interval with the top girls then head over and join Alianna and Laney. I felt pretty good. Nice cool. 7.35 miles

PM2- Ran to Wal-Mart from my house using the new trail. Looked for something to buy my Dad then ran back home. 3.25 miles

Warmed up with Jason for 15 minutes. Then we lined up against the fastest Cirizens in the Nation. My plan was to start out conservative, speed up in the 2nd mile, then have my last mile as the fastest. It was a great course and I pushed well. I thought I was pushing harder for the last mile but it ended up being my slowest. I guess I don't know how to race a 5K. My 3 mile time was looking good but I'm not too impressed with my 5K time. It was a fun experience. Beat all the girls but Brooklyn. Ran around cheering all the other racers. I cooled with the boys after their race, then with the girls after their race. 10.45 miles

Warm up on the gc. Then got Marieta to come out for our inaugural Abandoned Golf Course 5K. It was really windy in the first and third miles. The wind was definitely a factor but I think I still pushed pretty good. There were some decent uphills. Good course that I found. Marieta ran 25 something.

Wanted to work on pacing. Did 3 miles slow and warm up (and uphill). Then I tried to do 3 sets of 7:45, 7:15, 6:45. Pacing became difficult with up and downhills. Still a fun workout, trying to spice up my morning. 13.22 miles

AM- Met up with the team. Warmed with the boys and hit some strides. Pushed Briger around to test his resiliency. Ran with Trevor, Talan, and Jeric for a couple of intervals on the track. Then also a little with the girls. Then also a little with Coleman and Parker. Mainly with Parker because Coleman always has to poop. My left leg keeps acting like its beat up. Don't know what thats about, probably just the cold and swollen ankle. Not a bad morning. Good to be with the crew again. 

My watch took over a mile to load then died shortly after. So I ran with no garmin or strava for a while. Then I recorded part of my run with strava on my phone. So this is some guess work but I'll say I ran around 6.76 miles (definetely not overestimating). 
 

PM- Run with Marieta. We'll call it the Wal Mart loop. Added a little on my own. My hamstring was pulling a little bit. Made me a little nervous. 5.53 miles
