21 miles!

Five easy by myself around Liberty Park before meeting up with Fritz, Allie, Collin, and Adam for a tour of the East side of Salt Lake and then back to Liberty and a couple more laps around with Fritz. 16 miles in 1:59.

Feeling good.

Today is the eighth anniversary of the day we adopted Andy. Dinner, as always, at Bucca di Beppo downdown! I'm glad I earned those carbs.

Great run Rob. Looking good. Buca di Beppo is always a nice reward. Carbs away. MIH

Great run Rob. I didn't realize you wanted to run the entire 21 miles on the wood chips doing loops. I hope the change of scenery kept things semi interesting.
