In other news our daughter Camryn decided that it was time to take the training wheels off. Her friends were riding their bikes all over the neighborhood and she was feeling like it was her time. I worked with her for a couple of days and she got to the point where she could go pretty far by herself before bailing out. She still needs to learn that she can stop by pedaling backwards and we didn't work on sharp turns but my guess is that she will be riding solo by the end of next week if we keep working on it. We love our neighborhood and our kids have grown up with the many of the neighborhood kids for the past few years. We all know each other and it has a great family atmosphere. Many neighbors saw Camryn riding her bike and encouraged her which made her feel so big and special. Thanks neighbors!
Allison had to work Saturday so I had my once a month "daddy day". We both got up really early to get our runs in but you've got to do what you've got to do. I've been getting the kids donuts when I watch them and since it was St. Patricks Day we got green ones. They loved them!. Bashas was also having a carnival/fair so I took the kids to do some bouncing and fun.

At the Mountain to Fountain 15k I met Jake Krong from Salt Lake City. Jake and his girlfriend Andrea North are both really fast and I can relate to them since Allison and I are a serious running couple. They have a blog called Wasatch and Beyond which I really like. Jake is training for the Boston Marathon and he has a good chance of being one of the top Americans. There are good tips on training and recovery and its great to see how they have improved in the last year.
