I wandered up to Jeremy Ranch at 8 AM hoping to bump into someone up there to do a longish run with. It figures that the one Saturday I can make it up in the last month there's nobody else there.
Pretty nice solo run though - 15 miles in 1:54. A bit faster than I normally do that run.
Had a pretty good meet for my boys last night. I should comment on the ridiculous improvement in high school XC in Utah over the past few years.The Murray Invitational is a good comparison because the course has remained standard and the weather is almost always the same.
In 2006 Davis won the meet with a combined team time of 1:25:04 and 89 points. My Alta team finished 3rd out of 30 teams with a team time of 1:27:20 and 136 points.
Fast forward to this year. Davis runs 1:21:40 and has to win on a 6th man tie-breaker. Their team score was in the 80s, virtually identical to what their 1:25 got them in 2006. My boys ran 1:25:53 to finish 8th out of 37 teams. We had 309 points!
My #1 runner, Kramer Morton finished FIFTH in 15:51.
In 2006 Luke Puskedra of Judge WON in 15:56.
PM: Super easy three miles in the neighborhood.
