Day of rest. Went to church.

Seriously.

I actually planned a longish run today up in Park City but after church the kids and I went by The King's English bookstore here in Salt Lake. I picked up this new book called American Crucifixion: The Murder of Joseph Smith and the Fate of the Mormon Church by Alex Beam and I haven't been able to put it down. The early history of the LDS Church and how it ties into Jacksonian Era America is just flat-out fascinating to me.

Nine gully-wompin miles after track practice.

Registered my boys and their smokin 7:51 4 x 800 time for New Balance Outdoor Nationals today. I won't be able to go with them. Bummer.

Spent two hours this evening with my old friend Jack Bauer.

14 miles around the Foothill Loop and Sugar House. Very early! Region track meet tonight and tomorrow night, swim meet Friday night, AP practice exam Saturday, Ann working Friday and Saturday nights... might be hard to squeeze runs in.

Good meet tonight at Copper Hills High School. All three of my girls set PR's in the 3200 and Kramer won the region championship in the 1600 outkicking Bingham's Andrew Brewer (the defending 5A state champ in the 1600) in the last 100. It was good for Kramer to get a win against a tough opponent. Slow pace for the first 800 made it hard for anyone to run a great time but my guys all ran tough. Kramer's 800 splits were something like 2:18, 2:07.

3200 and 800 tomorrow for the boys, 1600 and 800 for the girls.

Too tired to get up this morning which probably means I'll take a zero today. Track meet after school and then Abby's orchestra concert tonight so unless I can drag myself out at 8:30 or 9:00 tonight, I won't run.

Good meet yesterday. My boy's team came in second to Bingham. Kramer won the 800 in 1:55 and finished 2nd to Brewer in the 3200 in a photo finish. I couldn't tell the difference on the tape but they gave it to Brewer. Then he rested for seven minutes and anchored our 4X4 (which got DQed) in 50.5.

Blake and Davis both ran well and Braydon finished 2nd to Kramer in the 800. We went 1,2,4 in the 800.

No run. Foiled by lunchtime meetings and swim meet in Orem until 9 pm.

Managed 3.25 miles on the treadmill at the Orem Aquatic Center before my timing duties began. Is this better than nothing?

7.5 miles on the treadmill. A woman on the treadmill next to me fainted and got shot off the back of her treadmill and I had to call 911. I thought she was dead the way she literally flopped to the ground. Turns out she was just anorexic and had skipped a couple meals.

Wow! I made it to 40 miles for the week.
