Just a run around the neighborhood to see how I liked the cascadia 5 shoe.  Needed the half size bigger than what I was wearing in the 4 series.  Worked well,  but almost a bit too roomy in some areas.  some soreness in the right buttock but otherwise muscles ok, just a bit fatigued.  avg 8:15 due to a 6:59 last downhill mile.

Went on a trail walk with Charlie, our Cockapoo.  He is not much of a runner, but we did about a mile.  Was fun to be with the pooch, but not sure is he loved it until we started down the trail.

Lovely day out on Antelope Island.  First time out there for this run, and the first longer trail run I have done.  Was a great experience.  Not sure on the actual race mileage, above is what my Garmin recorded, could be longer because of all my weaving around.  avg pace 9:03 which I was very happy with because of the multitude of ups on this course.  I heard about the "switchbacks" but they ended up being a bit longer than I expected.  Felt fairly strong going up them though.  Nick busted out a great 50K as well.

Great day overall.
