Five mile run in the morning. Five mile hike at Zion NP in the afternoon. Didn't fall off a cliff and die. All in all a great day to be alive!

Last run of 2013 and last run in St George before heading home. Always hard to go back to Utah County winter weather and the January blahs. Maybe we'll get lucky this year and not have too much nasty weather and inversion yuck.

It's been a very fun running year in 2013, one of the most enjoyable and rewarding ever. Had many thoroughly enjoyable training runs and races and even managed a lifetime marathon PR at BCM. Not sure if I'll see any more lifetime PRs in my lifetime unless it's a 50-miler or something I haven't done yet. But since I turn 50 in 2014.... just maybe...... :-)

Nice 7.5 miler to start the new year. Not as nice for Kimi who took a nasty fall on some slick ice :(. We didn't get out until around noon so temps were pretty nice for January near 40.

Back to the regular grind. Went out nice and early in the dark for 6 miles. Temps around 20 didn't feel to bad for January. Later got to the gym for 30 min XT + core.

Nice run today but a bit slippery in places. Probably could have put on the yak-trax.
