Personal:

I am a bioengineering PhD currently working as a post-doctoral research fellow in the Department of Neurology at the University of Utah, where I design neurosurgical approaches for treating movement disorders. I was sort of fast until I put running on the back burner at the end of grad school and am trying to get sort of fast again now.

Staying in San Pedro near the coastline for the weekend. Beautiful hilly run near and along the coast, as well as on some trails in white point preservation. 400' of climb in 4.7 miles. That's a lot considering that I had no trail uphill. 7:30 AP. The humidity is kind of shocking. I finished 20 minutes ago and already showered, but I'm still slightly sweaty. Haha.

24 laps on the U of U track with barriers forcing people into lane 4 for half of the track. Estimating that I averaged about on the edge between 2 and 3 (cut in on the bends when possible), it would be 6. 2 instead of a hair under 6. 7:10 AP.
