I finally made it up to Jeremy Ranch. Woke up fairly early, had a couple cups of coffee and a bowl of Cheerios with fruit then drove up...
Jeremy Ranch, for the uninitiated, is a rolling dirt road that parallels a creek through some beautiful country up near Park City. It's a little more than 7 miles one way, so 14.25 total miles. It's rolling, but more downhill out and more uphill back. Strangely, it often seems to have a headwind both ways. The elevation is about 6,300 feet.
Today was pretty warm and I ditched my shirt about a mile in. I was sort of planning to take it really easy and just enjoy the run on a perfect morning. So I was thinking about 8 minute pace. But I was feeling pretty good and ended up averaging 7:37 pace. 14.25 miles in 1:48:25.
7:50, 7:42, 7:35, 7:30, 7:43, 7:32, 7:26, 7:31, 7:50, 7:42, 7:46, 7:38, 7:23, 1:23.
The only thing that would have made this run better was some company. I did see some deer, a coyote, and a Bald Eagle ( being our national symbol, I feel it should be capitalized).
