Great run up at the Round Vally trails in Park City, UT. 12.25 rolling miles at 7:40 pace. Also got in a pretty good strength/plyo workout at the outdoor gym which is something I love and wish we had here in Salt Lake.

As is my wont, my mind wandered to the greatest Minnesotans of all time while out on the trails. My top 6...

F. Scott Fitzgerald, Paul Westerberg, Bob Dylan, Charles M. Schulz, Prince, Hubert Humphrey.

I'm sure this list will provoke a lot of anger and generate wild controversy. If you don't like it, feel free to make your own list of great Minnesotans.
