Ran once around the block then headed up to Jeremy Ranch with Jake and eight of my runners. I ran the full 14.5 miles with Jake, Kramer, Ashton, Jacob, Davis, and Blake. Some of the other guys turned around at six for an even 12 miles.

Perfect day on the road. Lots of cows, sheep, donkeys, and sled dogs in training as well as the Park City cross country team. The longest run ever for most of my boys.

Great run.

Is that road runnable in December? Planning to be out there around Christmas time.

That would be great Bret. It all depends on the snow totals. If it is runnable it probably wouldn't bode well for your skiing!

I believe its very packed down in the winter... with a little traction of your shoes, you could probably trudge through some miles in December.

I'm hoping for at least 150" of snow by Christmas.

What a perfect run for you and your team, Rob! Very smart!
