14.25 miles in 1:48 on the dirt road at Jeremy Ranch. Legs still a little sore and very sluggish. 71 degrees at the start, 81 at the finish. Tough run for me but I'm glad I did it.
Why does this run seem more uphill every time I do it? I actually thought about running that 150 foot drop per mile half marathon down in Utah County today but I'm glad I didn't now.Who knows how long it would have taken me to recover from that!
Jake brought up a good point that I knew but had forgotten about American distance running legend Pat Porter who died this week in a plane crash in Arizona. If you remember the Prefontaine movie Without Limits, it was Porter who played Lasse Viren in the movie. Nothing like getting an 8 time USA cross country champion to make the running scenes look believable.
Took the kids swimming at the Steiner pool and frozen yogurt after. Another 100 degree day here in Salt Lake. Watching Olympic beach volleyball now. Not a bad Saturday.
