Did a hill workout with my kids this afternoon.  We did 8 hill repeats that alternated from 200 meters to 400 meters down passed Artic Circle.  We would switch every other one.  The total run was about 7.5-8 miles.  I felt like I hadn't run in a month and Macy and my fast kids had no problem leaving me in the dust, especially since I had stomach cramps.

Easy run with my kids after school with 4x100 meter strides at the end.  I am still having issues with my groin and adductor.

I decided to run the Thanksgiving Point 5k this morning as a little tune up for next week.  it was raining this morning but the temps were okay.  I figured I could probably win a race like that because of other races going on, even being partially hurt and out of shape.  I was disappointed to see Brandon Hebert thereat the start.  Brandon and I took it out easy and finally ditched all the High Schoolers by the first mile.  We both knew that he could smoke me any time he wanted to, but he stuck with me for another mile and we chatted.  With a mile to go he kicked it down and ran about a 4:40 last mile, and I shut it down to about 6 minute pace because my adductor was starting to hurt.  I ended up running 17:44 and he ran 16:18 after being with me for the first 2 miles, sick!   This was a new race and not very well organized, but the proceeds went to he Food Bank so I was fine with not getting much. I cooled down after the race with Zak, and then had to hurry back to get ready to head to Willard for dinner.  Happy Thanksgiving!

I drove to Logan from Willard to run with Paul and Cody.  Scott Ensign also came along.  We met at Paul's and did the old Providence hill loop, I love and miss that run!  We stayed around a 7:20 average pace for the run.  It was good to visit with Paul and Cody again and go for a run.  I definitely miss Logan and the friends I have there so it was good to go visit.  I saw Paul's boy Seth for the first time too.  Cute kid, but looks like a mini Paul at the same time, lots of hair but no beard!  Good times!
