Good Day! Ran 1500 up Parleys and back, extended up Parleys trail, and then took Foothill back! Kept 6:59 pace, so a little slower today, Ill blame it on Saturdays workout haha! Still, two thirds of my run was inbetween 6:30 and 6:50 splits! I just had a couple of slower miles coming up Parleys! Gained 987ft in elevation! Feeling Fresh, Ready for BYU!

Woke up late this morning due to organizing a group project late last night! Turned out good cause Ethan was heading out at the same time! We went down to the sports complex and ran a good 25 minutes on the grass! We chose poorly, the grass was really thorny so we paid for it haha! Felt good to take it easy and just enjoy being barefoot out in the sun tho! It was perfect out this morning, sorta terrified to come home!

Idaho- Delta Spirit: I had no idea how great this band actually is! Their whole Delta Spirit album is one to remember!

Man Today was just feakin weird! I slept in due to late night studying! Ran following my math review! I went 6:20 pace for the first half the run! I was feeling good but also a bit fatigued! Then when I was turning back I got the strangest feeling behind my hip! It felt as though Id strained a muscle, thankfully it went away quick but Im a little nervous about that pain it was odd! ALSO, on the way back a freaking BEETLE flew into the back of my throat, when I saw it fly in, I saw it was bright colored so I freaked out and thought it was a bee for like half a second, thankfully it wasn't but it had me nervous! So that was a fun experience! 

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea- Neutral Milk Hotel: This song is Beautiful but the Dan Mangan cover that was just released is even prettier! Really enjoying Neutral Milk Hotel rn!

First run in a while over 7 averages, hope to PR this weekend! A lot has been on my mind! I've noticed that I've been letting myself get way more stressed out lately! A few things have been weighing on my mind such as a career, finals, how to achieve the kind of life I desire, and the relationships I've developed with the people around me! Each of these worries have been reducing my optimism and excitement that I've carreied with me this past month and a half, and so I think I need to reframe my perspective in someway! 

"take care not to feel towards the inhuman as they feel towards men" -Meditations: This was all I needed today! 

Fare Thee Well Miss Carousel- Townes Van Zandt: Townes always makes me feel a little more at ease!
