I finished Lord of the Flies again. Don't love it, but the last few chapters really know how to tick a guy off.

am--7.5 Sidewinder from the bottom. I actually felt great.

pm--4 Anasazi to the top and back w/ Tom. Slow and easy. Running fatigued is a good thing to do once in a while.

am--6.5 Nice chatty, chill run on Anasazi w/ Tom. Sounds like he'd run this trail every afternoon if he could.
 

pm--5.5 Anasazi again but not to the end. Highest mileage week for me this year.

Finished Hamlet again. My favorite work based on this play isn't The Lion King but Infinite Jest.

pm--6.25 Anasazi to the homestead. The weather was beautiful, and I pushed a bit. 
 

I also finished two books, Chris-in-the-Morning: Love, Life, and the Whole Karmic Enchilada by Louis Chunovic and Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds. Both good, quick reads.

am--6.5 Nice chatty jaunt on Anasazi w/ Tom. Had a nice discussion on divergent thinking and when it is most valuable.

Tonight, I finished Inverting the Pyramid: The History of Soccer Tactics by Jonathan Wilson. Although a bit on the long side, it was fun to read about some personalities I was previously acquainted with, particularly, Cesar Luis Menotti.

am--5 Sullivan Trail w/some great folks--Addi, Jacey, Jenessa, Jessica, Josie, and Sylvia. It was great catching up w/ them and finding out all the cool things they're doing like making others' lives better. I'm lucky to have coached these girls over the years.
