First things first. A shout out to my son, Kurtis, who watched four little kids this morning so Katherine and I could go for a trail run. Thank you, Kurtis!
Bonneville Shoreline trail, oh how I've missed you. I love this stretch of trail. We started at Hidden Valley Park and headed south toward Corner Canyon. The trail conditions were stellar, and there was even a good stretch of dirt. That's right, folks, dirt. We were both feeling really good and happy to be running. I was feeling in top form and was cruising uphills like I never have before. I can tell that all my leg work is paying off on those uphills. The entire run was great! Then we headed back to my house and did a bit of an ab workout and some stretching before Katherine gathered her yard apes and went on home. A good time was had by all!
I have no idea how Katherine managed this epic photo bomb, but it is outstanding!
The halfway point. Sunshine and dirt. What more could a girl want?
It's days like this that I remember why I love running so much. My entire day is better on days like this!
7 miles of bliss
13:08 pace (that may sound slow, but on this trail in these conditions, let me assure you it is not!)
