Nothin....Played in a pro am at oakridge country club and I played pretty good at times but the course was wet and long and you can't have very many errant shots or your in trouble. The rough was long and very tough and it cost me on a few holes, I shot 79 but I hit the ball pretty good for not really playing. I have to get back to running I just haven't had alot of time this week, between Soccer and baseball  for Ethan it has been impossible! I guess its time to start getting my butt out of bed.

Later.

I have offically been kicked in the butt! I got into the St. George Marathon and through the lottery no less!!! I haven't had that happen before! I will probably do a shake out run tonight and then I'll be up early and start running in the morning as well, my son  Ethan has an Early Soccer game in orem at 8:30am so it won't be very long, but I need to do something as I have been very lazy this week!

See ya Later.

I was up at 5am and then was out the door around 5:20, I was up early so I could get a run in before My son Ethan's soccer game over in Orem. I ran out to Gu corner and I kept the pace just kind of steady, I haven't run for a week so I knew my legs would not be real happy, but I needed to get a run in to kind of kick off training for SG. My average pace was 8:26 with one sub 8 minute mile in the middle, total time was 1:08:23. My plan is to just to base mileage until the middle of next month and then start increasing my long runs a little each week but then every other week I will have a smaller long run and then I'll have a few races mixed in there as well... I hope I can get through this training cycle with no problems and actually have a good marathon, cross my fingers. Now its off to My son's soccer game and then after that some nice yard work:)
