My good friend Bret Jardine (bret.fastrunningblog.com) just broke 3 hours at the London Marathon. Bret needs lots of congrats when he posts a race report.
15.25 miles. Started at my house, circled around Sugarhouse once and then dropped down to Liberty Park to do the last 10 miles on the wood chip. Liberty Park was working on a new record for crazy this afternoon. There was about one parking place opening up for every four cars that wanted it. Hundreds of thumping car stereos. Tempers were running high. I felt certain that if I circled the park enough times I would see a drunken Tongan shoot a drunken Redneck or vice versa leaving their pit bulls to fend for themselves. Good times!
