Great run (out by Red Cliffs)! I started slow and couldn't breathe so I backed off behind the girls.  Then I contined on my own path for a minute. Ended up behind the top boys for the last 2+ miles.  I ran fast enough to keep them in sights and it was a good but tough speed for me.

A rainly Lake to Lake Relay in the books. It rained for every step of my legs. 

Leg 2- Ran the new and improved leg from the Gunlock turnoff and through Kayenta.  I just took it easy knowing that I had many miles in front of me.  My fresh legs probably made me run faster than I should have, but I thought I was being conservative. My Dad was knowhere to be found when I got to the exhange at the end of my run.  Then I found him chilling in the bed of the truck 

48:43

6.15 miles/7:54 mile pace

 

Leg 4- One of my favorite legs of the entire Relay. I just let the downhills take me all the way from Upper Tawa Pond to Cottonwood Cove Park. 

40:11

5.16 miles/7:47 mile pace

 

Leg 6- This is where I ran into problems. My old chronic IT injury circled back on me.  I slowed down a ton.  Had some support from family cheering me on. 

35:04

3.83 miles/9:09 mile pace

 

Leg 8- Running....jogging up the dam road with some bad legs.  I felt like I could barely bend my knees. The constant rain was nice but it created some unwanted chaffing. 

34:40

3.41 miles/10:09 mile pace

 

Leg 10- This leg is always tough because you see the finish line as you run around the entire reservoir.  My dad and I made a plan after leg 8.  If I was hurting too bad he would bail me out about half way through the leg.  Well I got about 2.94 miles and my quads were cramping up.  My dad was right there when I needed him most.  He took over and slowly finished the dang race. Obviously I knew I wasn't in good shape for this race but I am glad I spent some adventure time with my dad. I also backed off enough not too do any serious damage (hopefully).

I had zero expectations for this race. I knew I wanted to compete and race well but was also fearful that I wasn't ready for the mileage.  

Loop 1 (4.3 miles): I took no hydra pack with me because it was a shorter loop.  The start of this loop (2 &3 as well) was basically all down hill.  That gave me a false sense of hope...I ran with the top 5 in my group for about the first 2 miles. Eventually the hills got ugly and I had a hard time breathing. I was still competitive and survived. My calves were getting really tight on the uphills in my speed instinct 2.  I've loved these shoes but they don't have the hoka cushion I have loved in the other models. As I transitioned into loop 2 I had Marieta help me with a hydrapack and I switched into the more cushioned Napali.  Running Time: 43:57

Loop 2 (8ish miles): The shoe change was an amazing idea! No more calf problems.  I ran smooth for the first 4 miles. I ran with a guy named Ricardo for maybe 2 miles.  He told me how sucky our current loop was going to get. I was not excited for the horror that lied ahead. Following a sandy dried up creek bed then some eventually tough climbing.  I had no energy when I got to those places. My overall mentality changed.  I went from being competitive into safety mode.  I didn't want to burn out after only 8 miles into the race so I slowed my roll. For the last 2 miles I cruised into the last leg.  Running Time: 1:30:38

Loop 3 (5ish miles): The last leg was mainly a hike.  I ran smooth on anything flat or downhill.  This race was brutal on my legs.  Even on the downhills my knees were getting beat up. I ran with some shot bloks last week and those seemed to work well for my energy. The running center did not have any this week so I settled for honey stingers. I don't think those sat well. I felt nauseated and light headed.  I knew I was going to pass out or throw up.  I didn't know which was going to happen first. For about 2.5-3 miles I walked.  I eventually feel to my knees and start throwing up all over the place. A runner came and helped me but I didn't want that.  I think throwing up actually helped me feel better.  I slowly toughed my way through the last 2.5 miles, running where I could.  My IT band was giving some problems on this last leg too.  In the back of my head I just kept thinking don't push anything that will do some damage and ruin xc practice.  I think I found a good middle ground. So I finished the dang race! Nothing amazing to report, other than I finished my first trail race. Running Time: 1:17:53

AM- I woke up early but wasn't feeling it for a run. I eventually drove myself out to the AZ strip. I ran out towards Little Black Mtn. On my way back I did pick ups of 1,2,3 & 1,2,3. I mainly did this because I wanted the run to be over faster since it was getting hot. 7.03 miles

PM- Weights at my parents and saw the girls out running. 

PM- 6 mile loop with Metler. We talked about NBA free agency and many other things. The time went by fast and the heat was bad but bearable. I averaged a 7:33 mile pace. That isn't saying much I know, but it’s been a while since I’ve ran that pace. 5.96 miles

Marieta got sick from partying too hard with her family all week. So naturally there was no sleep to be had the night before the Bryce half. I was up until 2am and needed to leave around 4:30 to make it to the race. I threw in the towel on the race and just decided to run from the cabin. It turned out pretty good! I explored Harris Flat and almost got run over by some pronghorn. Also 6 snakes for the week. 10.42 miles

Then as I passed the main water tank road Zack, Keaton, Kenny, and Wesley were coming down. I should have gone with them from the beginning. They told me how some of the other kids ran the wrong route. Had I been there I could’ve pointed them in the right direction. 7.02 miles

He did awesome and turned around about 30 minutes into the run.  I decided to press on vs head back with Nathan.  Then I caught up to Roberts and the girls.  I took a little lead and Keaton followed and passed me. I encouraged him to press on and I followed him all the way to the van at Te-Ah campground.  I ran well and I was very impressed by Keaton. Our run was about 100 minutes and had some good climbs. We even ran a little extra once we got to the van. The rain was nice!  I added a little once we got back to camp to make sure everyone was back. 10.71 miles

AM- The dreaded uphill run!  It's funny to see how much these kids dread certain runs.  At the same time they show a lot of positivity once we get out on it.  My goal was to help some level 1 guys make it up the steep climbs.  As I headed out I ran with the girls, Roberts, Trey, and Nathan.  It was fun and I coasted some downhills with Jess. After 20 mins of downhill we of course had to flip it back.  I helped Nathan maintain a good pace and rely on his affirmations. At one point we heard some dogs barking from a side trail, I quickly ran up to protect the girls (mainly Alli). The dogs weren't going to do anything but I yelled at them to go home.  Surprisingly they both turned away after I yelled. 6.74 miles (1.50 warm up on my own)

Dope run! My dad drove me and my bro and sis in law 12 miles up the marathon course from vernon. I wanted to run 14 but got a late start and wanted to be at xc practice at 8. I knew I had to run quick to make it to the finish line and my car. I ran really smooth the whole way. I know the course is fast and my times seem more impressive than they would be on a flat 12. However, I was proud of my mental toughness and calmness. Metler passed me in the last mile and I wish my legs would have responded better to go after him. At xc practice my quads were hammered so nothing impressive there. Ran with Roberts, Sadie, and Macy.

AM- Camped down by Pine Valley Creek. Woke up at 5am and headed towards PV. I kind of like running in the morning before the sun comes up. It also helps me on hills because in the dark I don’t realize I’m climbing a hill. I made it to the whipple trail before I started to get some sun (around 6 miles). Then I switch backed for about 2 miles on the trail before turning around. All in all a good satisfying run!  15.42 miles

Well this marathon was very similar to previous ones. Similar because I fell apart towards the end. The unfortunate and sad part was I actually prepared well for this one. My IT band flared up at about 11 miles. I pushed pretty well for some miles after but the pain was pretty intense. Once I started the crazy downhill by Diamond Valley I knew my my sub 3 goal was going to be out of reach. I was a little emotional because I put a lot of good mileage in the last 5 months. Then to have the same dang injury flare up and ruin my race was disheartening. I debated dropping out and preserving my leg but for some reason I decided not to. I stopped a lot to get icy hot on my legs and stopped for a bathroom break. Maybe I’ll never master the marathon and that’s ok. I just want to be in good shape and run far.

After a crappy day of work I was about ready to punch everyone in the face. Then much to my relief I arrived at practice to see G-Money hit Jason in the face with a pine cone. Now I know this wasn't probably a good thing but it did put a smile on my face and rasied my spirits. Run was ok....just feel like my IT is a ime bomb. It can flare up at any point. 5.15 miles
