Crazy day.  My son was on his delayed graduation trip and the car blew up in BFE Kansas.  Since you can't get a rental car when you are 18 I flew out to Denver, picked one up, drove to Kansas, sent them on their way with the rental car, and fixed the transmission in the Autozone parking lot.  Then drove back and got in a little run in Cheyenne, WY, which really sucked.  Slept 4 hours in the car and headed home.

Tempo run average at 5:53 pace.  So freakin sore it was even hard to start running at all, but I knew this run had to be done.  I'm a big believer in the tempo run 4 days after a marathon.  30 minutes of lifting.

Now loading up the boat and four wheelers for 5 days at Lone Rock Beach, Lake Powell for some desert running, riding and a lot of boat time with kids and friends.
