AM- Best run of the week! Ran out on a dirt road past Jacob Lake. Kept 9 girls together for about 20 minutes then Laney fell off the pack. Then for the next 55 minutes we had a solid crew of 8 with Brinley, Brooklyn, Kate, Adri, Katie, Brianna, Kennis, and Kyanne. There were some tough climbs and girls would drop off but either they would catch up with the group or we would go get them. I really had to be positive even though I was feeling worn out. I almost started hyperventilating mid run because I started to think of how amazing those girls are. I wish more than anything that Ava could live and eventually grow up and be like them. 9.69 miles 
PM- Cool 25 by the other campgrounds. It was very beautiful! 2.67 miles

Realized that the trail we ran yesterday afternoon was pretty short. We made the kids do some impromptu hill runs as we tried to figure out the area. Ended heading back to familiar territory. I was running with the boys for the first 20 minutes. Cooper and I were chilling in the back. We decided to split up and Cooper went with the boys and I joined the girls. Got some more hills in and ran up to a water tank. The girls flipped with Holt and Julien. Brin and Brooklyn wanted to continue on. I went with them and jumped over some puddles. Then we saw a sign for a "Helibase" so we had to check it out. The run back was a lot downhill until the last climb back to camp. It was fun pushing with those 2 amazing girls. They are going to do great things this season! 6.14 miles 

Camp was another success! Kids are passionate about this sport and our excited to get our season rolling. Jason and I also went 18-2 in KanJam.

Ran a random trail from my campsite. I struggled to run up all the hills. I was kind of a wuss without the team. Then the trail I was running on dead ended. I saw a ridge in the distance that I wanted to hike. It looked like it might be good elk country. After some long hiking (climbing over so many fallen trees) I peaked on the ridge and found 6-7 elk. I sat and watched them for an hour or so. I slowly got closer and closer. There was one young bull amongst the cows. I saw a paved road in the distance, figured it must be the Bryce road. Then I ran back to camp. 7.22 miles

 I wanted to look for elk and run into Bryce. I ended up on a different ridge than the previous day. Didn’t see any elk. Did find the paved road. Took the Whiteman Bench trailhead and started descending like crazy. I quickly researched how long the trail was. 13.3 miles from Whiteman to Under the Rim and finishes at Bryce Point. I wanted to cover 16 miles running so this seemed like a perfect trail. I started to get burned out about 8 miles into it but luckily there was the yellow creek to help me keep going. I lost the trail for a little bit because of all the rain washing things away but instincts kicked in. The last 5 miles were rough for me. The sun was beating down and the climbs were pretty rough. I ran on the downhills, flat, and gradual uphill. I was basically out of water at 11. The sun was beating me up and I started to feel nauseous. I sat in the shade and ate my pop tart. Then I gutted out the last 2 miles of uphill. 13.43 miles on the trail (probably 11+ miles of legitimate running). 
Once I peaked out I had to make a game plan on how to get back where I started my adventure. Hopped on the shuttle only to find out that they weren’t going high enough up the road. I ended up going the wrong way. So I jumped off the shuttle and stopped at the lodge and filled up my water bladder. Then I ran up the road a little before hitch hiking. I had 20-30 cars pass before some Canadians picked me up (2 guys I passed on the trail). They took me up 6 miles, offered me a beer, and then I went on my way. I knew Marieta was mad I was gone too long so I tried to hurry back but the terrain was rough once I dropped from the Bryce road. I hurdled over so many fallen trees and bushes. Then I put my hand on a branch to jump over a tree but the branch broke and I stumbled and my shin crashed into a jagged branch. Left some of my skin and hair on that thing. Then smooth sailing to camp. I was pretty worn out from this adventure but it’s the stuff I live for. 16.27 miles running (20+ Including the hiking)
