am--1.5 A few laps at the local elementary school. Nothing for the rest of the week. Sometimes, I find myself battling with purpose. 

I finished a fantasy tome--With Blood Upon the Sand by Bradley P. Beaulieu. It's a book with Middle-Eastern flair. Good but not for everyone.

am--9 Sandhill Loop. I volunteered to lead the girls up. That thing is pretty tough when one is acting as sweeper. Made to the top on the heels of Jason and Gracie in 15:45--that's a watch stat--and down the other side in 10:16. I didn't really get into the downhill until I decided to break away from a group that was struggling a bit w/ the magnitude of the endeavor. Overall, good run. I feel beat as I type this.

am—6.5 Dirt-mile tempo. I jumped out of the group a time or two to let them work together on their own, and it gave me a chance to run w/ some other groups.

am—6.75 Grapevine our-and-back. Had a rattlesnake sighting. Luckily, it was in a docile mood.

I also finished Lord of the Flies by William Golding. Quite a read, survival, human nature, violence, and so on.

am--4.25 Urie/Grass w/ 6x barefoot striders. The heel is aching. The sandhill always crushes it. 

pm--1.75 Weights and afternoon run. Hot one in StG. 

I finished The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. It's full of honey, black Mary, and female power.

am--7.5 A good longish run into the Fields. It was warmer and the pace was pretty stout at the beginning, so finishing uphill was a gutcheck for many of us. Kids are working hard, though.

am—4.75 Urie-Grass run w/ the last kids club of the season. It was a fun time on the grass. I love how the personalities play off of each other.

pm—2.25 I thought about taking the afternoon off because my lower extremities are achey, but, mentally, I needed a win.

am--6 Waltzed around the parking lot for 10 minutes, waiting for Jada. She never came. :( Finally, headed up the Grapevine road. I like that climb. Al Brown rocked it today. 

pm--1.5 Normal neighborhood heat run. 111 degrees today. Emma rocked it. 

Earlier this week, I finished A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It's the first Sherlock novel and includes a lengthy middle section about Utah and the Mormons. Everything ties in at the end. I promise. 

I am also just wrapping up Candide by Voltaire. Lots of terrible things happen, but Candide has trouble shaking the philosophy of his first teacher--"It all works out for the best." Like I read somewhere, you laugh out loud as you read it, not because it's funny but beacuse you don't know what to do when more terrible things come to pass.

am—10.5 Long run from the fields to Warner Valley and back. Like everyone else, I thought the run turned out to be quite a pleasant jaunt. We had a good crew that stuck together the whole run.
