Well, I haven't been running much lately and I haven't been bothered much by it either. I've been focusing on my job a bit lately and my coaching. The milesplit.com national site is doing a story on Kramer as is the Salt Lake Tribune. The Trib was out at practice today taking pictures of Jake and Kramer running mile repeats.I'm really enjoying my whole team this year. Just a bunch of good kids.

It's just a busy time. Abby and Andy are both going to their various sports and activities all the time. Ann's mom recently was diagnosed with cancer everywhere so she's been traveling to Minnesota to be with her. 

I love running in the morning but my job just makes that hard with having to be at my desk at 7 AM most days. Tomorrow I've decided to show up late and get in a morning run.

The rest has been good for me. I'm feeling good, ache free, and ready to go.

My day was also brightened when I read that Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are putting the finishing touches on a new album. I've been a fan since they released their first album when I was about eight. I still buy CD's and a new Petty album is one I always pick up on the day it's released.

Nice five mile run this morning. Got up early enough to get the run in and still watch a little Morning Joe.
