AM: 10 miles on the Pipeline trail. Little snow in January - don't think that's ever been the case before.

PM: Treadmill workout for 8.25. Alternating 3/4 mile easy, 1/4 mile hard.

So the POTUS has been floating this theory that the VP has the unilateral power to void election results in individual states. That's a crazy amount of power to vest in one individual and I'm not sure it was intended by the Founders.

PM: 6 miles at Liberty Park. Feeling a little stressed at the attempted coup in Washington. Today, mobs of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. capitol in pursuit of some goal that is impossible to understand if you love the United States. Usually a run helps but today it didn't.

I've been teaching American history for 25 years and I served in the Army for 14 years. I've always believed in this country and tried to teach its history as a story of progress. Sometimes that progress comes excruciatingly slow but it comes. I'm not so sure about that anymore.

I don't keep a conventional diary or journal. The reason I sometimes post my thoughts and feelings about big events is because I like to go back a few years later and remind myself what I was doing and thinking at a critical time. So it's entirely personal. I'm not trying to win any political argument or incite anger. 

Unplanned day off:Andy had a wrestling tournament down in Utah County so I decided to ride the bus with the team right after school ended. Didn't get back until 10 PM. Went home and went to bed.

PM: Treadmill workout. 3/4 miles at 8:00-8:30 pace followed by 1/4 mile at 5:50 to 6:00 pace. Trying to get used to faster turnover and I think the treadmill is a good tool for that. May work on going up to 1/2 mile at 6 minute pace in a week or two.
