Day of rest. Started the day by soaking the feet in the Provo River. Good way to study the scriptures. Palm Pilot makes it easier - you do not have to worry too much about getting it wet. Scripture study by the river is a bit out of character for me - aside from running I am a very much an indoor creature. But in Russian they say "The need will force you" as well as "Hunger is not an aunt" which both mean the same thing. I want to have a shot at a decent race in St. George.
On the side note I just realized that I accidentally memorized all of the names of the sons of Jacob (or The Twelve Tribes of Israel) including the names of their mothers. It just happened naturally on my third round through the Old Testament. I noticed that tendency about myself. Give me something to memorize and I am below average. But allow me enough time to be around the subject matter and I memorize a lot of things without trying. That is how I remember a whole lot of running times and splits.
During our sacrament meeting today a member of the High Council who is from Guatemala and is still not confident with his English expressed a concern to the bishopric that he might have language difficulties giving his talk. Somewhat in jest they told him he could switch to Spanish if he ever stumbled. He asked them to find out how many people in the audience could speak Spanish. They did. About half of the ward raised their hands. He ended up giving his talk in English with no problems, though.
In the evening soaked my feet again in the Provo River.
