Warm again the cool stretch is over, not complaining though.  Good run this morning uneventful which is good with me.  I'm a bit tired now and I have to work all day.

Very groggy this morning, I couldn't wake up.  Drug myself out the door early so I could get back to take my daughter to conditioning.  I don't think I really woke up until 2 miles in or so.  Very warm out this morning, even the breeze was warm not didn't really help.

Hot and windy today, even the wind was warm.  Just took it easy anything over 70, it was 77 in Ogden, kinda wipes me out, I know I'm a wimp.  Some strategically placed clouds provided shade for most of my run this morning making it a little better.

Cooler this morning made for a very nice run.  Wasn't out to push pace this morning but I ended up pushing it pretty good on the 2nd half.  Running a 10k on Saturday in Island Park with my daughter.  She's a little nervous about the distance but she'll do great.  She's conditioning for High School soccer and I thought a 10k would be good for her.

The dilema for today was how far to run given the 10k tomorrow.  Decided on an easy 5.5 on a perfect morning.  Feel good now almost like I didn't run at all.

Sawtelle Stampede 10k in Island Park.  Great trail 10K right below Sawtelle mountain although it was long, my garmin said 6.7 miles and mapmyrun had it about the same.  Ran it with my daughter, that was great running with her.  Race went well, had to slow down and wait for my daughter a few times.  Right after the turn around at the half way point in a really shady spot in the trees I hit a rock, tripped and fell.  Dinged my knee and hands up pretty good.  I was able to finish the race really strong, passed quite a few people and felt good after.  I think I was 17th overall, I let my daughter finish right in front of me.

Knee got sore and swelled up pretty good later in the afternoon.  I've decided to take a few days off until the swelling goes down.
