10 on the the trails.  Very muggy.

I have decided I will not be running the Full Monte Marathon this Saturday.  Blake has to attend a funeral and I was mainly just running it to support him.  I went back and forth a few times over the weekend, but decided I would be better served not taking my week of taper and then a couple weeks of recovery with my goal race coming up in just 7 weeks.

8 miles on the trails this morning. I decided to do something a little different and I ran hard on all the uphills and ran easy the rest of the time. That was a good workout. My lungs were burning on the last few hill sprints.

10 on the roads before heading out to Vegas to catch my flight to Salt Lake. I'm still heading up to Utah for the weekend even though I'm not running the marathon. I'm going to spend some time with my parents who live in Orem and my son who is a freshman at BYU.

I couldn't resist the allure if the mountains this morning so I headed out for an early morning run up the mountain above my parents house. It got cold asi got higher so my fingers felt frozen for a while. After going mostly up for 12 miles I turned around and headed back. I ended up with 4,555 feet of elevation gain with a max elevation around 7900 feet. 

I bet it was really cold at the start of the Full Monte for Slick and Smooth. I definitely enjoyed my mountain adventure and the I went and watched BYU get destroyed by Wisconsin with my son Chase.
