Great run with cookie master on the BST north of Rainbows in O town.  Perfect weather with great trail conditions and not a soul out.  Oatmeal to finish it off.  O town empty...where is everyone?

Wanted to get the DD in today but had little faith starting out.  Beautiful day though and couldnt reject the lure of reverse big titty when I found myself at mouth of Big Cottonwood.  Slow but sure on this one.  Time for waffles.  Hey Oreo.. nice all nighter at Hairdogs house of tile.

Antelope Island always a good time.  This is the fifth year in the row that I have done this race. The 25K loop is a great combo of ups/downs/flats/views/ and buffalo to boot.  About 350 runners this year I think. Felt good overall throughout this race.  Perfect temps but a nagging wind at times that was a bit chilly.  Starting out is about 2.5 miles of steady vert that is runnable but just need to settle in and find a pace that gets you to the top and then can recover until the next ups.  Did the downhill a bit more reserved this year as my quads werent taking the pounding as well as a few years ago.  Switchback section always tough starting out but then becomes remarkably doable if the will stays intact.  Was starting to slow a bit when a runner got on my tail about 4 miles to go and hung there... this didnt bother me at all as it felt we were working together even though I in front.  At a mile to go he pulled even and could have dusted me but hung and we ran the last in together.  This helped me stay strong and faster finish than I would have had otherwise.  Oreo had a strong run and fun to hang with him for the night and day.  AMC theater rules.  Oh also talked with Rocky Toone out on island...havent seen him since High School.  Was cool. Good times... Scarback where you at?

THis was a snowy beast of a run on pipeline.  Snow...seriously?  Heavy Metal kind of run but luckily I had some Metallica One on board.  Beard is Bad A** brother Oreo.

Mt Wire alas has no large movie screens any more.  THey magically have been taken off the mountain.  I wonder how they did that.  ANyway... got in some vertical with a push to the summit...then down to my favorite side hill and then looped around to  some BST above research park... i will tell you what... running and doing vert on the scale of Grand Canyon is going to kick our butts... Im pretty excited to try none the less.  vert 2700 or so
