Why do I start the month with a big ZERO???  Well, my booty hurts, my knee feels funky, and my foot is angry.  I had a massage and I don't feel better.  This is a TAPER week.  No, I am not racing in the near future but the body has requested inventory. 

I shall wake up early and run miles.

Rather slow TM workout due to all of the food I ate previous to the run.

What an interesting day for a long run...

I got to RAD's house about 8:15 and we took the dog out for a mile warm-up.  Quarter mile in Rachel was pulling the dog along and the pup was out of breath.  I have never experienced running by a dog before,so it was all new to me.

The wind was a bit crazy so we took the 'Herrriman Hills' route.  It actually wasn't too bad as we climbed up the hills.  On the way down we were caught in a wind storm.  We stopped at Smith's for a drink.  Once I stopped I was really dizzy because of the crazy whipping wind.  She called her hubby and met us three miles south of the Smith's. 

Happy I got 13 in today.  Thanks RAD.

Birthday run!  Ran down to Sug House Park, ran 2 loops around, went back up the dread hill.  

My Birthday was extremely AMAZING because of a special someone.  :)

What a running morning!  Rolled out of bed at 5:30 without too much sleep.  I was ready to run!  So many calories have piled high on my body the past week, it was fair time to hit the asphalt.  

Met RAD at the cold and lonely JRP trail @ 6.  We ran the first 3 miles in darkness that seemed to go forever.  Once we hit the turn around spot, the sun started to rise and it was completely beautiful .  Hints of hot pink were in the sky and I suddenly became very blessed to be running in good health with a great friend.  

By the time we finished our time on the trail, the 14 miles we did didn't seem so bad.  I had 2 more miles left to hit my goal distance, but I really didn't want to do those on my own.  I decided I would go with RAD to her 5K and donate some $ to a good cause.

The intention on the race was not to run fast.  The first mile was pretty darn slow.  By the time I realized I might have a chance at winning, I picked up the pace.  I wanted to run on RAD's side, but my pride got in the way.  I ended up taking 2nd to my surprise and was given a gift card and hug from the race director.  Cool race.  Great running.

10 miles.  Zoo loop.  8:00 AP  

I am proud of my high mileage week! It was nice to get my long run out of the way for the weekend.

I went to Ogden and watched David at his track meet.  So cool!  He zipped around that track like lightening!

45 minutes on the elliptical at work.  10 minutes in 40 7th grade boys invaded my workout space.  I think I turned red.  Pretty sure they haven't seen a girl sweat like that, especially a teacher.
