We had 13 guys come out today! It's funny how most summers our numbers go down throughout the season, but ours are going up. As of tomorrow we are 3weeks from our first meet, the Highland Invitational.

I did about a mile warmup in the Gold Miners Daughter lodge parking lot. So we headed up to the campground. My goals for the day were to stay with Kramer and Jake to the top. I was so close, I stayed within 150m of them. I was able to make it to the top for the first time without stopping. Me and Alek pushed each other more than ever today. When one of us would drop a bit the other would make them keep going. It was great peer pressure. So me and Alek made it to the campground and we did 6 tough laps. He wanted to only do 4, but I got him to go for 6. When we got down to the parking lot we hit 9.5 so I did an extra .25 and 4 striders.

Jacob Allred on the way down threw up out the window. He was very sick. Hope you feel better Jacob.

Great job pushing it out to 6 laps. That's what you guys need to do, keep raising the bar for each other. These runs are really going to pay off.

I don't really feel like I'm doing my job unless one person throws up after a hard workout. :-)

You're looking good Ashton. Three weeks... time flies!
