The most important event of the day: a Cougar Tail. A 10-inch maple bar. Make the trip to Utah just to try one of these.
Let’s rewind to the start of the day:
I slept in Saturday morning so that meant one thing… my long run was on the treadmill and this is me reenacting how tired I was at the end.

Somehow I wasn’t bored for the 14 miles… my brain was all over the place. 1st 4 miles @ 7:30 pace and last 10 miles @ 6:27 pace.. average pace 6:45. I didn’t take any breaks during the fast 10 miles but my legs felt pretty tired from the beginning. So I I used my ‘when your legs get tired focus on pumping your arms and your legs will keep up’ trick and it worked for about 64 minutes.
I randomly listened to this old Mariah Carey album for the run. I don’t know why but for some reason it just worked well yesterday.
Somehow Utah got the memo to have perfect November weather for the BYU game.
Our seats came with the tent food before the game and during half-time. I started off with this amazing Mexican salad (tasted better than it looks).
Followed by plenty of desserts. Waffles on a stick + a chocolate fountain = brilliant.
Our seats also came with coupons for the above Cougar Tail. I could get used to going to more football games if they always come with this much food.
Brookers and I went on a date together at night and she wanted to walk around the mall and see all of the new Christmas decorations up! I really hope she never wants to stop holding hands whenever we walk around.
She was convinced that she needed these PJs but I don’t think they will really fit.
Just singing Christmas carols every night and learning how to play them on a mini piano.
And then I was in bed at a good time… the goal for the next two weeks leading up to the race!
