Went to this local 5k with my daughter...I asked her if we should run together and she said "sure, but don't expect me to talk to you...running is my alone time"  haha true enough...so we ran our own races and had a blast.   This course starts at Wasatch Dans and goes up the first mile into Millcreek canyon around the guard station and then back down to Wasatch then North to 33rd and back to the start.  Tough 5k course because there is a lot of ups including the last half mile...so I was happy with splits of 8:05, 7:13, 7:43....felt it was good effort and was still going pretty strong for the last mile up.  Ran home after race at a casual pace.  Beautiful day...Happy Thanksgiving all.
