This morning I did a 16 mile run from the I-80 overpass in East Canyon to the summit of Little Mountain and then down Emmigration Canyon to my house. My wife dropped me off at the top of the canyon at 8:30. It was 40 degrees with a steady rain.The rain turned to snow at the top of Little Mountain. Perfect for Memorial Day weekend. I noticed it was 88 degrees today in Minneapolis. I should move to a warm state - like Minne-freakin-sota!!
The first 3.75 miles of this run are all uphill before dropping down into Salt Lake. Here's my splits:
7:42, 8:08, 7:29, 7:37, 6:18, 6:22, 6:02, 6:02, 6:01, 6:04, 5:56, 5:54, 5:53, ( 1:26:07 for 13.1), 6:43, 7:05, 7:19.
Ran by Ruth's Diner in Emmigration Canyon about 10 miles into the run. The smell of bacon while I'm running can drive me insane with hunger. All I can say is it's a good thing I didn't have my credit card with me. I might have had to make a pit stop.
