I bet Zion if pretty sweet for running this time of year

Sounds pretty awesome, despite the fact I know nothing about the Zion National Park. But after running 13 in the Ouachita Mountains National Park yesterday, you're preaching to the choir, brother.

By the way, I wanted to share my 2012 New Years Resolution #11: Stay within 10 minutes of Rob Murphy at Boston.

From Rob Murphy on Sun, Jan 01, 2012 at 09:58:55 from

It's inevitable Wesley. I'm 47, you're what, 28? Sooner or later you will catch me.

I'd be interested in knowing resolutions 1-10.

What a great place to run! Happy new year!
