Overdressed this one so am sweating like a beast. Thought it was still cold because of earlier snow, but must have been in mid 40s.  I like being sweaty though so not too shabby.  Ran a 8:31 avg on a Holladay route out to the Market Street Grill area.  Nice tunes today.  It's interesting that its the same music list I have in the ipod but some days it fires on great songs and sometimes it is full of suckitude.

Wowza.  Got a call from a neighbor who has run 25 marathons in the past 4 years to see if I wanted to run with him this am.  I of course am trying to gear up for the first one.  I now call him the drill sergeant.  He wanted to run hills, so we started out and ran up 45th south all the way up to the mouth of Neffs canyon in Olympus cove.  I had to power walk here and there and catch up.  3.7 miles of pretty steep ups.  Then down to base of millcreek canyon where he wanted to do some sprint work.  did 3 30sec sprinting hill repeats.  totally gassed at this point.  then we started running up millcreek canyon and got to log haven restaurant.  he had another appt so his wife picked us up and drove us down the canyon to his house.  run 10.5 at this point so i went alone back home to get the 13.  He is a task master and a bit too intense about it all for my taste.  Good work out nonetheless.  Nothing too fast with all the up.  avg at the end 9:48
