pm--5 Anasazi w/ me neighbor. Headlamp time. The trail is beautiful in the dark. This year has brought even more perspective to my favorite haunt.

I finished Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. What a treat it was! I didn't know what to expect, but I loved it. Lewis has a way of putting the unfathomable into words.

pm--5.75 Classic Barrel Roll. I felt a bit trashed today, but so is life. The trails heal regardless. 
 

I finished Hyperion by Dan Simmons. It's a spin on the Canterbury Tales w/ some interesting allusions to Keats who is a favorite poet of mine.

am--14.5 SC/Virgin River trail. This is the longest I've run in a while. So when a friend invited me to accompany another friend on a long bday run, I thought it would be fun to see how my body would react. The run was a bit slower than usual, but the conversation was good. Nice way to finish the week.

pm--5 Anasazi to the creosote w/ Cocteau Twins. Pretty interesting sound. It was windy out. That probably affected the TT today.

pm--6.5 Nice rhythm run w/ 2x 150 after.

I finished Stretching the Heavens, a biography of Eugene England by Terryl L. Givens. It's quite the profile that doubles as a study of the tension between individuality and community.
