Forgot this story yesterday- I tried to convince Marci Tuesday night to go beat the Fast Running Mommy's "100 m dash while 40 weeks pregnant and partly dialated" record but she was not at all interested. So the record is safe... for now.
AM- Left the hospital and drove straight to Green Canyon. Attention all Logan FRB trail runners (i.e. me)- NEW GREEN CANYON TRAIL!!! NEW GREEN CANYON TRAIL!!! Courtesy of the National Forest Service and National Trails Day, we now have new trail in Green Canyon for the 2nd year in a row! This one isn't awesome singletrack like last years, but I won't complain. New trail runs on the north side of the road from the end of Bonneville Shoreline trail up to the main parking lot.
Ran 10.5 miles on Green Canyon. It was a bit cold but perfect trail running conditions. The upper singletrack was very muddy, puddly, slick, and sloppy- in other words, perfect trail running conditions. I got up higher and entered the frost zone- the plants were frosty and the mud and puddles were frozen- in other words, perfect trail running conditions. Then I got up even higher and hit the snow zone from this week- snow everywhere! In other words, perfect trail running conditions. The best part was I didn't see a single human being on my whole run! Run was quick but not pushed- 10 miles in 1:17:25, pretty good for a trail.
PM- 8 easy miles on the Logan Canyon river trail.
