I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

Just over 3 miles around first dam to warm up, then met Cody and James and drove to Jardine Juniper trail.  My favorite run, first time this year.  Finally.

We didn't push it too hard going up but it was definitely hot.  Very steady climb (1850 feet total).  We saw a mom and baby moose.  Great views and pretty scenery, including at the tree.  Fast but relaxing run down.  Cody's watch said 10 miles but utahmountainbiking.com says 11.4.  I'll go with Cody, though effort wise it is definitely closer to 12 miles.

I've always thought that ride was under 10 miles, a little over 10 if you go to the tree. I'll go with Cody's watch on this one.

Most online sites say 9 to 11, with most saying 10. I like the 11.4, but maybe I'll change my entry tomorrow to 10.

I had alot of fun on the run tonight. Glad that I finally got up that trail. We will have to do it again this summer. Like I said on my blog, trail runs like that are usually not as long as you think, but the quality is comparable to longer than what you think.

Trail runs should count as 1.25 per mile anyway regardless of the distance. Good run

From Jon on Tue, Jul 10, 2007 at 10:08:06

That is about the only problem with doing a lot of trail runs- you may do 4 hours on trails in one week but only have 24 miles to show for it. If you did the same time and effort on the road, you would have 32-35 miles. Lowers your total mileage some.
