PM: Struggled to squeeze in a run. These 55-60 hour work weeks are killing me. Got home from work at 5 and really wanted to get to Andy's baseball game at 5:30 since I will have to miss next weeks game with a meet. So I went to the game up in the Avenues and left a little early to run home in my "street clothes". I did have running shoes at least.

So, 6 miles in long pants.

Eesh, long hours. That's dedication.

Hope you didn't have any chaffing.

Thanks Jon. It will get easier in a few weeks when XC season ends.

Does it end that soon?

Utah has the second earliest state meet after Alaska.
