Happy 4th!  Up at 330 AM to get on trail to summit Ben Lomand from Huntville side.   The trail going up this way is fantastic with some seriously stunning views and glens along the way.  Was sucking it up as far as energy until the summit but Oreo and HDog going strong.  Felt a bit better on run down.  Awesome adventure on a cool and unique trail.  Good times.

Pulled Tick out of my shin at the bottom... kept its own head I think.

Im counting this as a run even though it was poor effort.  I was tired man.  Hannah wanted to get out so we hiked to Dog lake and ran what I could down.  Felt like an old man from the soreness of Ben Lomond.  Probably 25 to 30 dogs on the day.

Mt Timp Peak with Nick...my brain was depleted of oxygen by the top but this was an epic event and seriously cool terrain and views and the coolest mountain goat fest ever that we were invited to.  Great morning...

Road sloggage in the morning before the swelter started.  Slow and sure and somewhat painful.  I wonder how I use to do all those road miles.

Mid Mountain from stein parking area to Empire Pass to make it a loop.  This is a great trail Im reminding myself.  I love the quakie aspen areas.  Felt better after a big off trail dookie...anyway  there are great trails around this mountain. Feeling some desire to get back to being able to do a slow steady run without feeling like I am made of lead.   Paddle boarding for the first time in a pond up here in Park city with family.  Was fun.
