Five easy miles at Alta/Snowbird. This was the first Alta run of the Summer for my cross country team. I was surprised at how comfortable I felt at 8500 feet.

Four 150 yard striders at the end.

I'm feeling really good now and am excited about the UVM this Saturday. I don't have any aches or pains and I felt some real pop in my legs the last couple days. I plan to take the day off completely tomorrow and then head down to Provo on Friday. We are actually starting our family vacation then ( I know its Provo, but we are staying at a hotel with a pool which makes it a vacation as far as my kids are concerned). After the race Saturday we are heading for the Central Coast of California for several days at the beach. Should make for some nice recovery runs.

Thanks. You might be right. I don't think Steve Anderson is racing!
