Kind of pressed for time today so Laureen and I just took the creek trail and then looped around behind the high school.

Ran the temple loop with Laureen. Mostly clear with almost perfect temperatures. Hit the sun at the top of 40th. For some reason my left hip was being a little sore today.

Picked up Paul around 5:20 so that we could get down to Spanish Fork to meet up with Tom and the Spanish Fork group at 6:00 a.m. Happy to see that Terry was able to make it as well. It was fun to see so many people out at that time of morning. There certainly is a great running community down that way. We started out at a very comfortable pace which was helpful since we were soon running in the dark on an unfamiliar road (for me, at least). We stopped after a couple of miles as we met up with some additional runners and then headed back up along the half marathon course. I really enjoyed the company and the run along mostly quiet country roads. About nine miles into the run I started feeling some of the GI distress that has bothered me off and on for the last couple of days. I had to slow down and then walk for a bit to wait for my bowels to get untwisted, but Paul was there to keep me company and after a few minutes I was able to get going again. I stopped again at a Church on the way back, but part of the reason for that was to delay us in getting back to Tom's house too early and ruining his surprise birthday party. As it turns out, he'd already picked up on a few things out of the ordinary and thought that he was being set up, but what the heck, it still turned out to be a fun get together with lots and lots of great food!

Laureen and I were really feeling the need to get out for a run this morning as the rest of the week had been such a disaster. We asked the girls if they wanted to go with us and surprisingly both of them agreed (we were more surprised with Brittany as she's never too excited about it -- Amelia's been getting some runs in on the treadmill). We went over to the Lone Peak track so that everybody could run their own distance at their own speed. We jogged a couple of laps together to warm up and then Amelia and I ran a faster lap. She still tends to take off way too fast and then has to stop after 200m or so. I ran a couple of 800s (3:16, 3:15) with some easy laps with the others thrown in and then ran a couple of 400s (1:25, 1:29) just for fun. Everybody seemed to have a pretty good time despite the fact that it was a little on the cold side. With the sun it felt just about right. Laureen and I didn't get in the mileage we were hoping to, but it was an even better day because we had both girls with us.
