pm--7 Bouncing tempo that started at 7:45, went to 7:15, then to 7:30, and finished at 7:00. I felt pretty good, but some of the kids had a hard time w/ this one. Not sure if it's because of the races on Saturday or just mental struggles.

I finished The Liar's Club by Mary Karr. It's both funny and heart-wrenching. She has a great voice.

pm--5 Anasazi to the creosote. My leg around the knee feels funky. Perhaps, it's a pain that manifests from tightness somewhere in the posterior chain. Who knows? I'll keep an eye on it.

pm--7 Paradise Point. Fun strength run w/ a good group. It's great to watch some of the younger runners push up the hills. I'm counting this as a trail run since half of it was in the dirt.
