21.1 miles in 2:38:51 (7:32). Mostly around the neighborhood and Sugarhouse Park. Paid special attention to running the downhills in the park hard.
Began the run at 3 pm because I actually wanted to run in the heat. We've had several straight days of all time highs here in Salt Lake. Close to 90 everyday. About halfway through the run the cold front that is supposed to make our weather more Fall like came in. The temp dropped about 15 degrees in about 10 minutes.
Well, I talked myself into doing this Grand Canyon rim-to-rim-to-rim run next Monday with Jon Allen and a couple other guys who are veteran champion type trail ultramarathoners. Apparently this run is close to 50 miles.
I'm very excited about this, but a little apprehensive. I like to think the apprehension proves that I'm not a COMPLETE idiot.
