One cool thing is I got a Sony Action Cam!
That's right, soon you will be inundated with badly-or-not-at-all-edited running videos!
But first some pictures from running with the Tuesday Morning group and updates from the Family Campout with the In-Laws!

Went on a 3.2ish mile run with the guys in the heat of the day after Independence day.

NOPE! I'll see if I can figure it out.
I definitely need to find a good economical editor so I can make these into cool events!
A week ago Monday Matt and I decided to go to a local fun run - thinking it was just a fun group run.
Much to our surprise it was an 'official' fun-run-RACE - The Butler Bolt!
Starting at the Butler Fork Trailhead in Big Cottonwood Canyon (which is a gorgeous area, if you've never been up there - what are you doing?! Get up there!) you run up to Dog Lake and back down to the Mill D trailhead - about 5 miles.
There was even a finisher medal! Great run - well organized and a lot of fun!
Matt beat me by TWO SECONDS! Cut in front of me at the very last second!
I got my revenge at the 2013 Farmington Festival Days Flag Rock Run though!!
Last year I was 11th place overall at the Flag Rock Run, right behind Matt. This year I was 12th place, but I improved my time by 3 minutes AND I beat Matt by one minute - so I'm okay with that.
I think that had we started with some of our friends who finished a bit faster - we probably would have been part of that pull. As it was we started a bit slower so we were behind them the whole time. Great race! A bit over 7 miles total.
This morning I made it up with the Davis County Crew. We ran along the BST up in Kaysville up to Adam's Canyon where we took this fabulous picture
almost 9.5 miles. I was tired!!
This Friday night I might be doing the Millcreek 50k... which is a semi-organized 'fun run' all over up in Millcreek Canyon. THIS is the map of last years run - this year it is basically the same, but backwards - so we start going up Grandeur (although not from Church Fork like the map says) and finish at Big Water.
Quite a few of those trails I've never done before... and this would definitely be the hardest over 30 miles I've ever done... So I'm a bit nervous - we'll see if I even do it!
