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!

PM- Mini-workout.  3 miles warmup, then a progressive tempo on flat terrain.  Miles were 6:09, 6:08, 6:07, 6:01, 6:00, 5:33.  Last 1/4 mile was at 5:15 pace.  1 mile cooldown.  Definitely the best I have felt in a workout in a long time (probably because I wasn't running up any crazy hills, plus only did 10 miles rather than 16).  10 miles total, 6:29 avg.

Pace Miles: 10.00

Do you know where the Wendy's is on the south end of town, just past Crystal Inn? Head west on Golf Course road right there- PW starts at the corner of Golf Course Rd and 300 W and heads south along the golf course and Logan River for a mile, finishing at Rendezvous Park. It's only 2 miles round trip.

The big mystery is if you can figure out why it's called Planet Walk.

On a related note, it won't be so secret after next week- the first leg of the Ragnar Wasatch Back relay will run along it, courtesy of Paul routing them that way.
