Ragnar - WBR Leg 10 - 3.76 miles - I started at 3:45pm.  It was windy from the north west and about 82'.  My run mostly heads west into the wind which was tough.  I had 33 kills.

Ragnar WBR - Leg 21, 10 miles, time 73:17.  Started at 12:25am.  Great temperature of about 53' and no moon but plenty of stars.  This run was run on about half dirt road most of which was fairly good but some of it was rutty and bumpy.  My left quad was acting up a bit like it wanted to cramp. Dumb leg.  I had 75 kills which was fun.

Mile avg. - 7:19

Ragnar WBR - Leg 34,  3.97 miles with an elevation gain of 1698 feet, time 39:59.  Started at 10:50am.  Sunny with a temperature of about 65'.  This was the first year that this leg was paved.  Much nicer to not have to run in the dust of all the cars.  I was hoping to get under 10 minute miles but didn't quite make it.  I had only 14 kills.  I think we finally got ahead of most of the slower teams.  I did finally get taken down by a Weber State cross country runner on this leg.  Dallas was the only one on our team that never got passed.  I however had a total of 122 kills and he got 116, so at least I beat him on kills.  He's getting pretty fast.

Mile avg. - 10:04

Our team came in 63rd place of the 798 coed teams or in the top 8%.  We came in 111th place of the 1,066 teams of 12.  It was a fun time and Ragnar did a great job again. 

It seems that our team (South Jordan Slackers) keeps coming in a better place compared to the rest of the teams each year but our team isn't getting any faster.  I'm guessing that the more competitive people don't enjoy this race as much as the more social runners so that more teams are less worried about time and come out to do it for the social reasons and thus the average team time is getting slower.

Morning run, Temp. 54'

Great morning for a run.  Been busier than usual so I finally got out for a run and decided to do it fast (for me) which is under 7.  It felt good but I had to stay focused to keep the pace under 7.

It was a great honor to pass Chad and the Riverton/Heriman group going around Daybreak lake.

Camped out at Fire Fighters Memorial campground near Flaming Gorge for Youth Conference.  On Friday we went to the Vernal temple and then did a service project on the temple.  I got to go and be the camp Chef.  I cooked dutch oven for dinner and breakfast.  Yum!

Saturday morning I ran down towards the Damn and lost about 400 feet elevation in 1.5 miles and then came back.  I ran easy, my stomach was feeling a little funny.  The youth conference group then floated the first stretch of the Green river right below the damn.  It was fun.

When it's hot your body keeps saying over and over and over lets get in the shade and rest.  It's like an annoying stuck record player.  Other than that it was a nice run.

5PM run, Sunny, temp. 97'

The family went to Seven Peaks today and Dallas hadn't got as many miles as he should have because he let EFY and chasing girls get in the way of his running this week so we went running and a terrible time of day.  We would have waited until later evening but it is fast Sunday tomorrow and we wanted to get are fast started sooner than later.

Dallas got a side ache so the run went slower and shorter than planned.
