Haag and I ran up into the playground to map out, or at least get an idea of where we will do our XC invite.  We found some potentially nasty and fun places for a sweet course.  It was warm this morning for a change too.  Nice to get up and run in the morning in the light for a change.  8:50 ave.

I ran up to Butterfield Park and ran the first half of the Step Rock 5k at a tempo type pace at about 5:51 pace.  It felt weird and I had a hard time making myself relax.  I just haven't done anything like that in over a year and a half.  I ran home via 13400 S and 4800 W.  6:57 ave for the run.  Nice morning too.

Ran this morning early before my conference.  I did a loop up Pinerose to Emeline and hit the last .5 miles of uphill hard to Buttterfield park.  I came back the normal way.  7:07 ave. for the run.

I decided to go support the city, that never supports me, today and run their Step Rock 5k.  Macy was there so I had no pressure to run my guts out or my hip flexor off.  I just ran for fun.  I was 19:42 (6:15 ave) first in the age, and 4th over all.  Problem was is it wasn't that fun.  Just like anything Herriman City puts on the race, course, and everything about it was very poorly put on.  Also, I don't like running as a normal, semi over weight, out of shape guys.  That is not me.  I long to get healthy enough to get back into my old form in the near future.  First thing like this I have done since I won the Holiday Heroes 5k in November 2009 the week before I tore my psoas up.  Progress at the least.  I warmed up with Connor, Chuk, and Rory, and cooled down tow miles with Macy.  Chuk won the 10k and Macy won the 5k.
