A.M. 10.25 in 1:18:58. Met Jeff on the trail. An interesting thing happened. Right as I walked out of my house around 6:05 AM I saw another runner and invited him to join me. His name was Dax. As I talked to him it turned out that he served his mission in Madagaskar. Then I realized something interesting. Over the last 10 years I have approached a good number of potential training partners while running. Out of those I get a near 100% return missionary rate. This is higher than what I got from talking to men ages 21 and over inside the church! Go figure. You would expect that even if Provo were 100% LDS, with the 50% inactivity rate the missionary probability of a man inside the church would be higher than the missionary probability of a random man running. How do you explain that?
Did a mile pickup in 5:30.8 starting from the DI bridge. Felt smooth, but not motivated to go any faster. Felt like 5:30 pace was a fine balance of fast and relaxed.
Jenny ran 2.5 with Sarah.
P.M. 3.6 with Benjamin to chess club and back in 28:05. 1.5 with Julia in 13:19. 0.5 with Joseph in 4:38. 0.25 with Jacob in 2:36.
