I dropped off brooke and her crew at jr high then drove to moith of canyon ahhhh love the smel of the canyon trees. Ran four up easy 9:15 ap. Lol. Then walked around loking for water for about four minutes then not finding any at bathroom there i just took off. My foot didnt like the slant on way up. Lot of pressure on panterior tibialis muscle. But once i turned around i felt great for two miles then mybck began to tense up probableyfrom the downhill and i lost focus and steam...out of shape but happy i managed a 6:27 ap down. I then iced in river and then swam in pond. Then had a reaction to exercise or the pink benadryll....i started itching like crazy as soon as i got home. Worried it was swimmers itch so called city but i think it was a crosss reaction between benadryl and the 1/2 lortab i took yesterday at two different times....lortab at 5 and bendryl at 9 pm. Never took that brand of benadryl.....oh i also took my dhea just before taking odf to run. It could just be exercise induced a long with pond scum. Ha ha. 8 @ 7:51.

Met a nice 10 person group at provo canyon and drove up to begin of hope to hobble. Last time i ran this was 2010....when i preftty much was toast. But today i jist came along after reading on neasts blog a post from josse. Decided it would be rejubenating and a nice challenge but okayto just run real easy. Rachelle was there and we ran 6 miles together. I naturally kept running easy but some reason rachelle did not stay with me. She may habe wanted to jist stay with julia. Idk. So i kept running and passed the other four group and somehow caight up with jpsse cam and melanie while they stopped around mile 9. I had found a water stop at 8 they did not. I also grabbed four chomps. I jist casually jogged along. I could not stay with tje group after that cause my pelvis and ankle was in some arthritic burning pain...symphysis pubis mostly. When we reached the top at 11.3 i really was in a lot of bone pain and needed ibuprofen but noone had any. I was so scaredof falling on the downhill so i just went real slow. I had peaks and valleys with the pain. I kept praying to God to protect me and not let me fall and the voice came to me to just run easy and i wouldnt fall so i did just that and at times the pai. In my pelvis was less . At 21 miles a guy who passed all of us and not one of our original grpup drove up to me from the finish and gave me some motrin. It kicked in on the drive home. I stopped at all the water stations planted by sojoirners...five i foind. One i actually just passed by. One water i could not get open because i broke the plastic cap and eventually after two minutes hit the jig on a ro k several times to get it off. Ap without stops....9:30. 3:33 . Total real time 3:53 for what garmins read aroind me(i wore my stop watch cause i didnt wamt to fo us on my watch amd pace as it messes with my head) was 22.35 miles. Hawk says the course is 23 to 24. Who knows. Lots of elwvation gain and steep rocky loss. I my nikes were unstable so could never pick it up on the downbhill. Did not wamt to bif it. Josse did right in front of me and that was enough of a reminder and she was on an easier patch . ...... . Later i learned rachelle fell hard and hit her head and blacked oit. So sad ro hear this. Reminds me of when i ram this with kim and0 melanie i. 2009. Kim fell badly twice and cirsed this route and vowed ro never run ot agaom and she hasnt. I have now run ot foir times. 2008, 2009,2010 And 2013. Also ran part of it woth squaw peak 50 2010.
