AM - 3 miles. Andrea and I walked over to the Cottonwood complex, ran on the grass, then walked back home.

PM - 6 miles, horsepark + xc park.

Great conversation w/ my parents just a few minutes ago. They're getting all fired up for the family turkey trot in a couple weeks. My Dad said he did a 2 x (800, 1600) + 400-800-1200-1600 workout on the track yesterday. That's 5.5 miles of intervals - where did that come from?!?! And then the two of them were running hill repeats at South Mountain Park today. My family just cracks me up. Gotta love it.

I like this. I think cancelling the NYC Marathon was the right call (regardless of the bad timing, etc), but I'm disturbed and saddened by the fact that some people in NY were organizing disruption / violence against the race, and that was part of the reason it couldn't be run (safely). You would think those idiots could find something better to do (like, volunteer w/ the recovery efforts?) rather than go out and try to hurt people running the race (just threatening to is bad enough). This is why I hesitate to tell people I'm from New York (even though I grew up closer to Canada than NYC), and I just say I'm from Colorado :-) 

Mike Cassidy offers his perspective. Worth a read.

AM - 9 miles. THIS IS THE PLACE / Zoo / Donner Park.

PM - 30 minutes of pool running. Probably got my heart rate up to about 50. 

Here's an early draft of the 2013 USATF Circuit schedule. If anything, a few more races might be added (SLC, Des News, Lavender Days). I'll keep everyone updated and as always - if anyone has suggestions, let me know.

AM - 8 miles up to work.

PM - 7.3 miles home. 

Hopefully everyone will exercise their constitutional right to fill out a write-in vote for Rob Murphy as the new governor of Utah today. I think he's the man to stop SkiLink and bring back the 10K!

AM - 8 miles up to work.

PM - 4.3 miles down to SHP. 

The big take-home from the election is that Salt Lake voted for more parks and trails, while Colorado legalized pot. So maybe we'll move up a spot in the fittest state rankings after all!

AM - 11.5 miles up to work. Heading to Tennessee (via Chicago, of course, because its always so quick and easy to get to Knoxville) this afternoon for Nate & Nora's wedding weekend. Otherwise we would totally be at the Clean Water 5K. If you're around on Saturday, run it! Allie and James were even kind enough to start the race at a reasonable hour (9am).

New Vizipro. Light up jackets. Slick! Don't get hit by cars!

AM - 10.2 miles in hillbilly Las Vegas (Gaitlinburg). Ran up the Cherokee-Orchard road, which is is a grinding climb. Saw a bear. Then we went to Flapjacks.
