Ran with my man Ryan today. We started at the “World Class High School” of Lone Peak and ran towards the Canyon. When we got to the mouth we turned right and headed uphill. We went out for a lil bit on the dirt path that eventually connects with BST. While coming back we went a different way and got a little turned around but eventually made our way back. 

Afterwards we went and visited the legend Zack Ericksen! Hopefully we can go running and ball together soon.

Great run with Thomas and Papa Heaps. I wanted to get some hills in so we ran up the dip, the other side of killers, the hill up to Sami’s house, and then airport. Even saw Ryan and ran with him for a bit!

Ran with Thom on Potato Hill in Corner Canyon. It’s beautiful area with tons of nice trails. We came back and thought that Clark’s trail would get us back to our car. It didn’t really, well it would have if we hadn’t ran out of mileage. It was some great climbing tho, definitely want to come back and do it again.

Ran with Thomas, Zack, Maddie, and Jacob on Murdock. First time on there in a long time, it was great as always. Maddie went hard from the gun and had the rest of us working hard lol it was a great time with friends as well as a strong effort.

Night run on the soccer field. Started at 9 and the temp wasn't too bad. Got a nice view of some fireworks. Strides.

Met at 21st street pond, a nice place to do tempos and power runs. Warmed up over to Fort Buenaventura and started the Power run from there. I've only done strides up to this point so I went not as far and not as fast as the other guys but something is still more than nothing. 4.14 at 5:49 avg. Felt nice and smooth, it's a good starting point. Next week on Tuesday we'll be doing 2x2 miles at Beus and going a little faster. Two mile cooldown with Colter.

Long run on Murdock Canal. Legs were a little tired after the tempo-reverse upper combo. I was graced by my dads presence on the bike for the first six miles, before a tire went flat and I had to go pick him up in the car.
