Started my run from Costco after shopping with cathy. I ate a costco hot dog and 3 pepsi before I started. Did seem to phase my running but right after my first mile my bowels decided to evacuated everything. I didnt quite make it to Arbys a few hundred feet from me. That was sudden! Well, after clean up was over I was on my way to run my tour of st george. I just about circled the whole city. I didnt make it as far as green valley because I was leary of the uncleaned situation and didnt want further issues. The miles I ran was easy and no further problems. Now I must eat! Ave pace 7:55

Biked around the ironman course looking for friends. First time out on my bike in a very long time. I changed into running gear and headed out the hilly st george ironman course. Finally found my friends on my way back. They turned me around, under much protest, and I ran the course again! Feel good and felt strong all day!

Dog Town Half Marathon. I just wanted to get a nice easy run in. I ran easy for the first couple miles. Felt too good not to take advantage of the race atmosphere so I turned it into a tempo run. Ran mostly 7's for the last 10 miles. Felt good to push a little for that distance. Ave pace 7:10
