Week's Summary

Well I got a nice load of running in this week.  While there wasn't a heavy emphasis on "quality", I did get a good amount of mileage in.  And that is good to get about 4 weeks from the Tahoe Marathon.

I also was saving my strength for the weekend's Race to the Angel.  That race needed a bit more "rest" time prior to doing but, I thought I had done well.  Also, looked at 2013's results, I am happy to report that I finished a few minutes faster.

I still need to drop a few pounds and that means I need to watch what I eat.  I've gotten into a bad habit of eating whatever I want with unlimited quantities.  I know I've said this before, but I need to dial back my portion sizes and quit hitting the work / break room for unlimited candies.

Desert Run

Since Monday was a holiday (Labor Day), I took Tuesday off and was in Wendover for a night of fun / gambling.  And of course, on Tuesday morning, I woke up early and ventured up Aria Drive and into the Utah side of the desert outside Wendover.  I love exploring but that morning I didn't want to go too far as I hadn't brought any supplies and I was still a little fatigued from Sunday's long run.

I did capture some beautiful pictures. One of these days I'll bring gels and more hydration and go even further.
