A.M. Today I was glad to have an excuse to run only 6 (tapering). It was raining. Not too bad, but it has not been raining lately so I got spoiled. The cold rain made it nice for my foot, though. It fussed for the first couple of miles, and then I felt absolutely nothing. I think if the weather repeats itself in St. George from last year it would help me in the cause of placing higher, although I hope not with the time. If it did help with the time it would mean that the foot would fuss so much on a normal day that the slow down from the cold, rain, and headwind would be less than from the foot.
Ran the total of 6.179 (16 laps around Grandview) in 44:30. Last lap in 2:13 (5:44 pace). No soaking in the river. I figured the feet got plenty of soaking from the rain already.
P.M. 0.5 with Joseph in 4:49. Supervised the kids on a bike. Benjamin ran 2 in 16:38, Jenny in 19:24, Julia 1.5 in 14:16. Soaked the feet in the river as Sarah and I read 3 Nephi 11.
