PM: 4 miles in 35:58 with Abby. A true recovery day.

Later PM: Walked a total of 3 miles while Andy was playing at the super-nifty new Imperial Park here in Salt Lake City. An earnest and sincere young missionary from the LDS Church (it's a big deal here) invited ust to "Pie Night in the Park" this Saturday at 6:30 to which we'll definitely go because we like pie.

you are only going for the pie? I will have to check out Imperial Park. That is a nice addition to your neighborhood.

Strangely, it's not on Imperial St. It's at the intersection of Glenmare and Atkin just South of 2700 South. Good drinking fountains for long runs.

Darn, no pie nights around here, just higher taxes.
