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!

Did you use your Garmin to measure the distance?

From Chad on Sun, Aug 03, 2008 at 14:36:52

Jon--I read in the tribune today that they're closing part of I-80 between PC and SLC next Saturday (the 9th) for 24 hours. I think they're closing the westbound side, but you should check and make sure that doesn't interfere with your race plans.

Don't let Sasha see this...

From Chad on Sun, Aug 03, 2008 at 17:00:05

Andy--more likely he G-Map'd it.

From Jon on Sun, Aug 03, 2008 at 18:24:57

No Garmin. I'm more of a mapmyrun.com kind of guy...

From Jon on Sun, Aug 03, 2008 at 18:25:50

Yeah, I saw that, Chad. I'll double check as Friday approaches to make sure it is only westbound. If so, I'm ok for the morning and just have to go home on I-84.

Great solid miles Jon! You are the man!
