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.

Great day on North BST in O-Town with Oreo.  Glad I came up as the day was pristine and pretty dang cold at the start.  Once sun broke and the wind died it was a great time.  Beautiful views over the valley.  I was hungry for a hamburger from about mile 6 on so...Dylan's Mount Ogden Burger with a shake followed the run for a perfect outing. Oreo in strong, springy shape.  Nice to see Bryce as we were finishing...O town is happening place.
