Sick day with the boys. So I started off with like a mile and a half warm up for the Skyrim. Only Asa, Landon, and I and some other people trying to qualify for camp were the ones actually racing it. I had Austin help pace/motivate me on his bike. I didn't have my watch so I was wearing Austins but sadly since he has a 620 instead of a 220 I didnt know how to work it and I told the freaking lady assistant coach to hold up cuz my watch wasn't ready but she started anyways and I didn't get a great head start. The start felt faster than last time I ran it but I was all by myself this time not with the guys. So after I was done I realized it wasn't as fast. Going up the hills I felt really strong and thanks to Austin and his motivational words to me my kick was good. It felt like I kicked a lot better this time. Came thru and my time was 7:59 but I didn't start immediatley cuz I was trying to get the watch set, so I'm counting it as 7:58 and a new pr. Because I got pretty much the same time and I feel my kick was better, I must have started off slower than last time.

Got everyone together and we went and ran the Jail Trail. The one I ran with Dalpal for the first time just a little while ago. It was so sick. Some of the guys wimped out tho right before we got to it smh. We went the opposite way of when I went with Dallin. We stood on top of the dirt mounds. It was hard just going up that first road because its steep and I had already done the 1.5 thing. But then we decided we would run up to the telephone pole and evaluate what we wanted to do. So we ran up the even steeper trail to the pole and decided we want to go the next mountainess hill top. Then we bushwacked and trailblazed up to the next hill top. This is when Asa was getting pretty done and we were all tired as heck and wanted water. But somehow we convinced Asa to go the the last mountainess hill top with an even steeper trail up to it. It was one that was tough to run up without slipping cuz it was so steep. We slowly made our way up there and the view was amazing. It was tough but a super fun time with Asa, Landon, Parker, Big T, Thomas, and the Twins.

Made our way back and went and had a party in the spring. We jumped in a whole bunch of times as a farewell, at least a farewell for me. And then went backstage by the pumphouse and all this good stuff. After that went and played ball with the LP and PG homies. We had a super sick group of guys and we played for sooooooo long but it was super fun. Gonna miss all these good times.

Hello fellow bloggers. This is my last blog entry for a little while. Not gonna run today cuz I have to pack and get set apart and then we're going to dinner and I don't want to run after a buffet. But I am planning on running with my dad early tomorrow morning so just consciously add a couple miles to this week ;) 

My time on the blog has been so fun and I've became friends with so many awesome people. Thank you for the support. Running in high school was amazing and I'm so excited for Weber State when I get back. Keep it real homies. 

You should all email me and let me know how your running is going! connor.arnell@myldsmail.net
