AM-  First day of XC.  We had about 100 kids out for practice, a lot of them will stick it out, we will lose some.  Did a loop down ( 6000 W, Main, 5600 W) with the kids, then went another 1.5 with the faster kids.  5 miles at 7:31 ave

PM- Drove to the church by Fort Herriman.  It was cloudy because a storm was rolling in and I was super grateful because it cooled it down from 90 to about 78 degrees.  I ran the Butterfield Brawl course.  The trail was better, but still super rough in a lot of places.  Ran the run about like the last two.  I ran it in 50:03 and Starva tells me it was 50:46 from some reason???  Ran an extra mile at the end.8:06 ave.  Got done just before the thunder storm.

Drove to the church across from the trailhead and warmed up for 1 mile.  The race was pretty loaded again for a little trail 10k, but Golden Harper stole the show.  He ran 2.5 minutes faster than last year's race!  The rest of the guys were within a couple minutes from me.  I just am not a great climber since I killed my hip 5 years ago, so those guys that can climb, especially the first part, pull away enough that I can't get them.  I was in 8th for a while and then pulled into 6th, but could never gain enough.  I got in trainer pace mode too being by myself.  Overall it wasn't bad, and I came out without falling or getting hurt.  47:22 was my time, about a minute faster than last year.

Cooled down with my HS kids that ran the 5k for just over a mile.
