Lovely rainy memorial day morning.  I wasn't really feeling it because I stayed up to late last night watching a movie.  The Guardian, not great but my wife and daughter thought watching Aston Kutcher was nice.  Anyway,  the run was nice and cool.  4.38 miles, avg 8:13.  Made a push at the end but didn't really feel that hot.  Have a great day.

was going to run today but unfortunately my 7 year old son fell at recess and broke his arm.  We spent the day at Primary Childrens hospital.  He is doing well.  But we are all bummed out.

Last night was a father son sleep over in the moutains around Park City.  Of course the night was filled with a disaterous "try to set up a tent" experience which I finally found the culprit was a broken bar to the maintent pole.  I was rescued from this by another who decided he wasn't sleeping over and I borrowed his tent.  Will slept well.  I slept well with a little help from my friends (Ambien and Ibuprofen).

Breakfast at the crack of dawn then it was a race to depart.  Also, felt the urge to run but the heat and breakfast of sausage, hash browns and eggs was kicking in at 1.5 with cramping results.  Anywas I limped 4 instead of the planned 6 and averaged 8:21
