No run. Camping with the family. I did eat lots of junk food, stayed up entirely too late, and slept like junk. Typical camping trip.

4th year in a row that I've run this race. I think this is the slowest time; in too lazy to look. It was 108 here yesterday so heat was a bit of a factor, plus I've had a cold since Thursday. Needless to say, I had low expectations and was content to just win, regardless of finishing time. I ran with the second place finisher through 9 miles, then picked up the pace. And that's my race report.

HP and back. Short run today because 1) slightly sore from Saturday, 2) it's my kids birthday, 3) I slept in.

Chickfila and Target north. Then my right calf cramped up on me and despite stretching and walking, it didn't loosen up. It's felt blah ever since Saturday so I just called it quits and called home for a ride.

Legs still feels jacked and hurts to walk. So I rode the bike this morning for the first time in 8 years? 11 miles, it was boring, and I don't feel like I got anything close to a good workout.

Leg felt OK through .75 and then final quarter mile it felt like my calf was going to seize up any step.
