On somewhat of a whim and for something to do in a new area I signed up for this run that I stumbled across online the last few weeks.  this was a cool race held as part of a series of 4 trail races in the Park City area.  Glad I did...this was well organized and had cool people around and was a tougher than road marathon half with 1250 elevation gain on singletrack and dirt roads.  

Main goal was to just keep running even on all the ups.  I did, so I was happy on that one...also felt happy to just go that far as it was my longest venture out since the O town marathon wrecked me in May.  Beautiful day, with slightly warm temps but I didnt have the energy to rip the shirt off.

splits in case I do this again 8:46,9:19,8:48,7:44,7:51,8:48,9:46,8:12,9:47,8:41,8:31,9:15,8:59

Garmin had the course long at 13.44 

Good times!  And they give a cool glass pint with race logo instead of shirt...not sure why I like that so much but I do.
