Second day of XC and my assistants are both doing Wasatch Back, so I was it today.  I decided to run even though I was going to wait until tomorrow.  Started at the back and made my way up, talking to all of the new kids on the way.  We have a lot of new kiddos!  Probably averaged 8-8:30 pace for the 4 miles.  Legs felt a little heavy from not running all week, but the rest of me felt good.  The week off has been nice other than I have been kind of sick with stuffy nose etc..  I will go a little longer tomorrow.

Met a few of my kids up Yellow Fork this morning. I wanted a nice slow tough trail run today. We went a way that I have never gone before.  We headed up Rose Canyon on the dirt road (which no longer has 3 foot deep ruts anymore).  I started out with Jess and Lucy for the first mile while Chuk, Connor, Jesse, and Calvin  went up ahead.  I lost the girls after a mile the boys kept going, so I ran almost all the way up by myself.  The first 4 miles was a 1900 foot climb.  I met up with the boys and we came down by Varsity hill and got on the single track for the rest of the way.  It was super dusty and hard to see rocks, roots, and stumps because of the lighting on the snake single track.  I was leading down at one point and went down on my right side face first.  Luckily it was a part with mostly all dirt and not a lot of rocks, so I didn't get beat up too bad.  Calvin went down worse a few minutes later.  We saw cows, rattle snakes, deer, turkeys, and almost ran into a big fat sheep on the way down, that freaked all of us out a bit.  Connor thought it was a bear!  We were all filthy when we got done, especially me from my Pete Rose down the mountain.  Fun run, and very tough.  I am ready to do some of these though trail runs again.  I remember running a lot of good trail runs in Logan with Paul, Cody, and Jon and just always feeling tough.  I need that toughness back.  8 miles in 9:05 pace and we climbed and dropped 2,000 feet both ways.
