I ran the Indermountain Donor Services Dash for Donation at Sugar House Park this morning with my daughter Abby.

It was a super morning. One of my super motivated 9th graders ran right around 19 minutes. It was great to hang out with Jake and Andrea who were a big part of organizing the race through Jake's work.

I ran the whole way with Abby who ran a 5k PR by about 2 minutes. I'm sure she'll put a race report up later.

I think that might be it for me today as far as running goes.

PM: Hot tub, swam a few laps, sauna, pool.

I registerd for a 6 mile trail race up at Alta tomorrow. 2,500 up, 2,500 down. Tops out above 11,000 feet. According to the website, it's "65% runnable".
