Super happy with this time - only 4 seconds slower than Draper Days on a much more hilly course. 2 plus laps around the Sugar House Park road loop. I finished second to Jake Krong who ran 16 something in his annual race. That makes 6 races for the summer of '17 with a trail 15k next weekend.

Mile warm-up, 2 mile cool down with Jake and Andrea after.

One of these days I'd love to know what "success in high school and college" really means. Could you possibly point to some old school race results? ;-)
