Personal:

Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...

Family day. A friend had a blessing for their son and then a potluck at a local park. Other than that just a relaxing day. In the evening I finally finished one of my manuscripts and sent it out to the co-authors. One step closer to submission.

Home loop. I ended up working most the day. The good news is I got the edits from my review done and back to my boss. One step closer to being published. Two in two days. Can't beat that. Avg. 7:57

Suicide-Dog loop. Still feeling tired. I planned today on Monday. Since I worked the holiday and get to make my own schedule (more or less) I took a half day today. Went in for about three hours. Then took the family to Thanksgiving point. It was great. We got to the door of the dinosaur museum as they were opening and there were only three other people there. We had the whole museum to ourselves. My daughter got to do every hands on activity without any wait. Toward the end of the loop of the museum a few other people showed up but there were so few children that we always had each room to ourselves for at least half the time. Overall a great family day. Then after a late lunch back into work. After dinner the home loop past Suicide Rock and through the Dog Park. Headed home just in time to watch the sunset. Avg. 8:35

A slightly different commute run in. Really losing my mind with the taper. Focus and sleep have been hard the last couple of days... Avg. 9:06

A very sluggish FireHouse mile 5:22. Really felt like I was running through sludge. The day was pretty good over all. I've enjoyed the updates on the Wasatch 100. Really makes me interested in running it one of these days. Avg. 8:37
