am--1.5 Weights/Harts. Alli brought the humor. Py and Jess brought the dancing. 

pm--5.5 Just some running on my own, which is kind of nice sometime, before the Autumn Classic. 

I finished Eat & Run by Scott Jurek. He talks a lot about his motivations and passions. Most resonate with me. Although he's vegan, he's not too preachy. I actually enjoyed the eating aspects as much as the running aspects because this old body keeps telling me that what I eat does affect how I feel and move. I just might try some recipes in the next few weeks.

am--6 I rode my bike to my parents' and dropped down to the Anasazi Trail. It's been a while since I've been out there. The legs and lungs need more of that. The soul could use it as well. Overall, I got about 90 minutes of movement.

am--2.5 Bank and back. It was actually cold this morning, like see-your-breath cold. 

pm--7.5 A run w/ 3 progressively faster miles thrown in, one every 20ish minutes. It really felt pretty easy, other than pushing up 2450. The kids are looking fit. Banquet was tonight. It's always a special time to celebrate the awesome things our kids do.

am--1.5 Weights/Harts+. Some good chatter and lovely folks.

pm--6 Green Springs. It's been a while, but I always love running up there. Voted when I got home. With the mailed ballots, there are fewer polling areas. The line was longer than I'm used to, but it was good.

pm--6 Good run up the Sugar Loaf road. We're fast, fit, and strong. The pace on runs gets stouter w/out any extra effort. Big group today, as well.

am--5 Truncated morning route. Just a nice solo jaunt. I need one of these every once in a while. 

pm—4.5 A cruise along Route 66 in Flagstaff.

While riding on the bus, I finished Shadow Puppets by Orson Scott Card. Decent. I’m more of a fan of Ender than Bean.

am--3.5 Pizza Hut and the bank. Real skeleton crew today. Many folks seem to be diving into their break.

pm--1.5 Literal trash run around Costco. Addi organized a clean-up project for a class assignment. It was a blast picking up trash and looking for outlanish items. 

Yesterday, I finished Draft No. 4 by John McPhee. Amazing. I love his writing. Perhaps, no subject exists that he couldn't spruce up and make appetizing.

am--1.5 Weights and neighborhood. Chill and fun. Had some trash talking among the boys about who might take the Dream Mile title this year. 

pm--5 Good run w/ some uptempo running and even some "race pace" stuff. It might actually be fun to train for and race someday again. We'll see how my lower legs feel tomorrow.

am--9 Run up the SC Parkway. I started out slow and let things naturally progress. Ended up being a good run. I feel pretty fit even if parts of me are broken down.

am—7.5 Happy Thanksgiving! I ran from near the mall to the cemetery in Orem and set one foot or so on the MCT and flipped. The morning was overcast and warm, so I was a bit overdressed. (I was expecting low 20’s and snow.) I’m thankful for family, friends, running, reading, and so much more.

am—3.5 PH and the bank. Small group.

pm—5.5 Missed practice because of a long meeting, so I ran when I got home. Kind of ornery and in a funk. I probably need some musical therapy.

pm--5 Some miles in the achey evening. I hit the snooze this morning--bad way to start the day--and struggled to get out when I got home. I finally did get some cruising in. 

I finished Shadow of the Giant by Orson Scott Card. It's the last of the Bean Quartet and nearly my favorite of the four. Ender's brother, Peter, plays a bigger role, and I like the Ender connections more than the Bean connections. Finishing this book may signal a reprieve from Card for a while, at least until I return to Ender's Game. I love that book.
