Trail run in Park City today. Took a wrong turn and ran a lot further than I wanted to.

Wow, great long run! Hope it was fun and the weather nicer than up here!

Thanks Jeff. I'm not fit enough for that. Walked several miles too. Brought only 1 bottle of water and no gels or anything with calories.

Was it a 5 or 10 mile detour? Nice run!

Yeah! You the man!

What trails were you running?

Jake - See that's the thing. I don't know. :-)

Oh Rob and his "trail" runs...

Do you know roughly where you were in Park City? PCMR trails? Quinn's Junction? Snyderville Basin? Tanger Outlets?

A few years ago, I took a wrong turn in PC, but didn't make it to 20 miles. The fire station bailed me out with a drink and a water bottle. I finally caught a bus back to where we were staying.
