even though i missed the whole thing, james ran a great race today.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Sun, 10 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 09, 2018 <p>green lake with the crowds</p> <p>i predict lebron goes to the spurs</p> Sat, 09 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 08, 2018 catching back up with life and trying to get my training organized again Fri, 08 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 07, 2018 Thu, 07 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 06, 2018 Wed, 06 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 05, 2018 Tue, 05 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 04, 2018 murdock canal trail Mon, 04 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Sun, Jun 03, 2018 alta-tude run up the summer road with andrea, jake, and rob Sun, 03 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 02, 2018 pre-wedding hike up to hidden peak Sat, 02 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 01, 2018 early green lake, happy june cavs in 6 SEA --> SLC !
