Hadn't run a single step all week.  So when Wendy invited me to run 13 miles with her and Stephanie starting at 6am, I happily accepted.

We ran on MCT from the Canyon Rd bathroom in PG to Orem.  I picked up the pace a tad on the way back, stopping to gu and drinking at the fountains. Quads still a bit tight.

AP: 9:57 (10:24, 10:20, 9:56, 9:56, 10:13, 10:28, 10:24, 9:48, 9:34, 9:30, 9:35, 9:28). 

Foam roll and stretch. 

***I am so slow these days!  I seriously need to loose these 10-12 lbs, get more sleep, eat healthier, do some core strengthening exercise.  I am back at the level I was when I first started running 10 years ago.  Back then my goal was to be able to run a 10 min mile.  It took me over a year to reach that goal.  My first marathon in SG 2005 was 4:38.   Now, I need to run 9:55 AP at SGM in order to BQ.  I know it's not going to happen.  But I can work at it over the next 6-9 months or even a year.  Right now, my priority is my hubby.  Racing needs to take a backseat and I am totally at peace with it! 

As for reciting the Living Christ, I have the last three paragraphs left.  I am certain that I'll have the whole thing memorized before I turn 60 next month! :)

Best part of the day was watching (with hubby) BYU beat Boise State,  another nail-biting last min. miracle pass topped off with an interception TD.  Disappointed though at one of our RMs who got a personal foul...what's the matter with my Poly boy?

I'm glad to hear you and Larry had fun watching another miraculous BYU victory. That sure was fun...again. Nice running. I'm sure you will have a blast at SGM no matter how fast, or slow, you run it.

Nice run. I can only dream of running that far. I have to be happy that I can at least run 3 slowly. That was a great game. If I knew how to put pictures on here I would post the picture of my daughters triplets in their BYU outfits.
