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...

Busy week ended with a busy weekend. This morning I was planning on meeting up with a friend to hike Timpanogos. However, we decided to hit a higher peak to save the travel time. Instead we hiked to the summit of Pfiefferhorn. It was a great hike on a great day. But unfortunately back to work... The next 5 wk are going to be a killer. Next grant deadline Oct 12th... I hope that the renewed running helps me stay sane.

Still pretty sore from the hike but it was worth it. Just back in crazy work mode. I really thought I had found my limit before... I think of Dora (those with little kids will know what I'm talking about). Just keep swimming ... ...

Cooler morning (felt nice) Avg. 8:37

My wife was kind enough to point out that my memory is about as good as the character I was trying to refer to. I meant Dory from Nemo...

Sub 6? Yes.

Did the Sunnyside commute run into work. Will try and work in some harder stuff once or twice a week as I continue to improve. This mornings "harder" stuff came with a surge down Sunnyside. I would say it was ~90% effort. I hit a 5:48! Very happy about that, now to string 26 of those together :)...

Late night in lab. But back again for more... Sugar House commute run. Overall still good. A little fatigued and all the wind sure had a lot of stuff in the air this morning making breathing a little tough.

Was headed out for 6 but misjudged the loop. Ran the family through campus past all the tailgaters.
