I signed me and Dallas up for Sandy's July 4th 5k.  If Dallas shows up feeling good and doesn't get a side ache he has a good chance of taking me down.

Ran mile 4 fast.  I was hoping for 6 even but got a 6:02.  It was hot and into the wind and I couldn't get the old body to do it.  Maybe I should have lost the 7lbs like I did last year or maybe it was the 10 cookies I ate last night.  I took a two minute recovery rest after the fast mile which was much needed.

Time 65:38,  Mile avg. - 7:52

Sandy 4th of July 5K.  Sunny, no wind, temp. 65'

A very nice morning for the 4th of July.  Last year there were over 30 of the top 50 at the High School age.  Kind of like a high school cross country race that lets the community run with them.  This year at the starting line there were quite a few cross country runners from different schools.  My son Dallas had on his Bingham high running outfit along with 2 other Bingham runners.  There were probably about 500 runners at the starting line. 

The race took off and the youngsters took the lead.  I was probably in 30th place after a quarter mile.  I was laboring really hard just to stay at a 5:55 pace.  I should have warmed up more.  The old body didn't want to kick in.  (Next 5k warm up better).  Then all of a sudden at the half mile mark the pace felt just fine and my body decided it was ready to run.  I was very relieved and was ready to RACE!  Soon after I passed Dallas and another one of the Bingham runners.  Now the race is getting fun.  I continued to pass runners the entire way unitl the finish when I came in 7th place. 

Miles 1-5:55,  Mile 2-6:04, Mile 3-5:58

Dallas got a side ache after mile one and slowed down a bit and got a 19:23.  He thinks he could have beat me if he wouldn't have got the side ache.  Who knows.  I just know that none of my kids have beat me yet!

Much easier to run in the heat a minute per mile slower than yesterday. 

A guy on a bike passed me as I was running and said that running is bad for your knees. I'm just wonding what he wanted me to do.  Stop running and walk back and never run again?

So nice to have cloud cover and lower temps for the lunch time run.  My left hammy started feeling funny after a few strides to I quit doing them and just jogged it in.

Just enjoyed a nice morning run without the sun.  This was a high mileage week for me for no particutar reason.  I don't have anything really planned for races, however, I've been toying with the idea of running the Pony Express 50 miler.  If I do I'm going to have to start doing some longer runs.

Another day on the JR path.  I ate a couple of pieces of pizza a half hour before the run and thought It'd cause me to slow down but now issues so I picked up the pace for last two miles.

I ran with Dallas at the Teton High Adventure camp.  We did the high ropes couse in the afternoon.  Fun.

Found an lightly traveled trail near scout camp.  It felt good to warm up after running the rapids on the snake river this afternoon with the scouts as it rained most of the trip.

Hadn't run in a couple of days and didn't know if I'd run tomorrow so I made it a faster run for my level of fitness.
