Second straight Saturday doing longest run of the year. Felt pretty good I think maybe the endurance is coming back.

Tough Loafer run. Stiff headwind on the uphill wasn't so nice.

Nice run down Payson canyon on a slightly nippy morning. Today was the 'running of the cows' so we had to dodge a few bovines on the way up the mountain for the summer. Today was also the first day we drove all the way up to the top.

Similar route as last week. But for whatever reason I felt pretty horrible much of this run. Last 5 or 6 miles were a death march. Time for a back off week next week I'm thinking.

Had a great time pacing the 2:00 gang at the AF half marathon. Canyon was beautiful and temps were cooler than they've been all week about perfect. Lots of runners around 2500. One of the best run races around that donates a bunch of dollars for a great cause. Cancer sucks!

Nice Payson Canyon run. Took it a little easy to be nice to the legs and ease into the running all the way back down to Peteetneet.
