I went out this morning in a whiteout. I should have worn goggles because I could hardly see with the snow beating me in the face. I ran along Hwy 89 out to Maddox and back. It was better coming back. The snow was really coming down and sticking, and it was cold on top of that. I was glad to only have to run an easy five. I feel fine after Saturday, no soreness.  37:00

I went to Logan and had a hour massage this afternoon. I feel great now!

I am staying at my twin sister's place in American Fork until Saturday when I can move my family into our house.  My first day of school wasn't too bad but enough to make me tired.  I went from my sister's house and did a loop around the hospital, up to the Temple, down to my house, and back.  It was freezing cold with a lot of ice on the roads.  I picked some wrong streets to run on and ended up fighting traffic most of the run.  I called it good after 5.5 miles because I was tired and chilled.  39:00

Very cold day again.  I am getting a little tired of this super cold stuff, it really kills my motivation to do much when I am always frozen.

I did a loop from my sister's house again after school.  This time I ran down passed the Rec Center and the cemetery.  I found a road that was like an old highway with hardly any traffic around 100 west and followed it all the way into Highland to the Highland  highway.  I ran east from there toward AF canyon and turned on the Alpine highway.  I follow that back into AF, and back to Becki's house.  It was a good loop and had some good hills in it.  The traffic was minimal except when I hit the two highways, but they each have two bike lanes so I had plenty of good space to run.  The run seemed like it took forever, probably because it was so darn cold!  I ran a good pace and felt good, especially toward the end, but it seemed like it was 20 miles instead of 10 miles.  I am glad to be done on another super cold night, and am finally warm after a long shower and a couple cups of hot chocolate.  1:09:03

I had a hard time talking myself into a run again today.  I got home from school and it was snowing pretty hard and laying down on the roads.  I bundled up and went out anyways.  I need to find a running goggle for days like today when the snow is stinging, and you can't see because of it.

I did a loop up into PG and and north over by Cedar Hills.  I came down by the Temple and ended up down by my house, then had to make my way back to Becki's house.  I felt kind of blah and so none of my miles were too fast.  I was glad to be done again.   1:01:33

I went out for a super easy run after school.  It was a lot warmer today so it made for a nicer run.  31:00

I am running the SLC track club series and the first race is tomorrow.  It will be a training series more than a racing series for me.  Tomorrow I have to move all of my stuff, so I will run the race and take right off right after.  I am not worried about getting awards because of how I plan to run, and the fact that I have at least 4 other teamates (Sasha, Steve, Ted, and Adam) that can kick my butt right now.

Crazy day for me! I had to go out to Saltair, run the race, cool down, and leave. Then I had to drive to Logan, pick up a moving truck, and move my stuff until 1:00am. In between all of that the 26 foot truck I rented slid off the road and down an embankment. We were stuck for over three hours. It was a miracle that we got the truck out without it tipping over. I have never been so stressed out in my life! That is an whole other story.

The race wasn't too bad, although I wasn't into it at all because of everything going on that day. I warmed up on the course before and ran with Adam for part of that. My plan was to run a tempo run and not be too tired for my big move later on. I stuck to my plan and ran how I wanted to. That course was flat and easy, and the only thing to watch out for was some snow and ice on the way back. It was an out and back course, and the side of the road that we ran out on was mostly clear, but the side coming back was not. The rest of the team was way ahead of me and did quite well. Steve Ashbaker and I went on a cool down and ran into Sasha, Ted, and Adam, so we all cooled down together. After the cool down I grabbed a drink and some bread and took off. The race was the only part of my day that wasn't stressful. I think my time was 17:45 and I have no clue what place I was.  There was a good field of runners there today.
