Bonneville Shoreline Trail via the JCC.  OUt and back starting at Drycreek.  Never done this section before and it was sweet.  About 900 vert on way out and down on back.  perfect day here in slc.  A few too many bikes for comfort but not bad for a Friday.  Needed it after a visit to doc for hernia and testicular cancer check.

Up to Snowbasin parking lot for Sardine Loop with Oreo.  Prime conditions, essentially had trail to ourselves.  Cool at start but warmed pretty quick as this a grinder out of the gate.  This loop has it all with great views of basin and then ogden canyon then pineview with some sweet descent.  Cool day.

Bloated run left me hustling for the fine restroom facilities of Millcreek canyon.  Burch Hollow to Elbow Fork

Too late in the day after wonderful roast beef sandwich.

Inversion sucks]

Gorgeous day.  Did loops around little bell reservoir.  Not many people out but trails perfect.

I noticed I often see a bluebird when I am out trail running.  For years I have noticed this, in all types of weather and in all places.  Why? (multiple choice format)

A.  Bluebirds are common to the area and everyone sees them

B. Luck

C. I am on a Holodeck and it has a glitch..."the Bluebird Glitch"

D. This is one single bluebird named Trevor and he follows me

E.  I am magic

I'm hoping for E.

Got out for a loop to Pipeline overlook and then up to Church Fork and down road in Millcreek to complete a nice loop.  Chilly 25 degrees at start but beautiful day

Liked the pipeline overlook loop so much I did it again this morning.  Cold, but once you get up Rattlesnake the sun hit and it was perfect and above nasty inverson.  Knees hurting a bit.  Could I be getting old?

Cool morning pipeline up Rattlesnake to Overlook then up past Church Fork back to Rattlesnake.  SLow but felt good and steady.  Trails perfect right now.  Sun just hitting the trail to take the chill off.  Still in shorts which is nice.
