Here is my new weekly long run plan:
Every Saturday I will drive up to Park City to run my miles along the millions of paved and dirt paths that run throughout the city. The views were spectacular. I don’t think it would be possible to get bored running there.
10.66 miles @ a 7:34 average pace with my coach yesterday morning. He and his wife are in town until Monday so I am trying to take all of the opportunities to learn from him as possible. It was a great run, I felt strong and I am improving in my running form which is key because the more efficient runner we are = the faster we are. I have a running form post HERE!
Before I get on to the race portion of this post let’s talk about this cute girl. She and I met at BYU in one of our classes and we both became health teachers at different high schools and loved it. She just had baby #2 and her husband was running this race so I finally got to see her after years of being separated.
Go ahead and add Big Cottonwood Canyon Marathon to my race calendar for next year. This was only the second year that it has been going on and there were 4,000 runners running it yesterday….I think that means it is a good one.
Pam came all of the way from Southern California to run this race and it was so so good to see her again! Janice rocked it and Christie and Candice (not pictured) had HUGE PRs! PS so happy Julia moved back to Utah too!
As I was driving home my mom called and invited me eat at Chick-Fil-A with her and my niece. This salad was kind of boring even though the picture on the menu made it look like the world’s greatest salad…so I had second lunch of cereal when I got home:)
Last night I took my sister’s kids for an adventure so she and her husband could go on a date.
We first went to ‘Chalk the Block.’
And so did the rest of Utah.
It was actually really cool and each parking stall had a different artist assigned to it where they created their masterpiece.
My nieces and Brooke had already had dinner so we just got some quesadillas and my nephew and I split those pork nachos from Cafe Rio for dinner. Yes, I ordered something different than the salad. A miracle really.
Brooke is giving my nephew the evil eye for not smiling for the picture.
And a night doesn’t end without some ice cream. We hit the jackpot with this one because it came with an overflowing amount of ice cream.
Eaten while watching Mulan 2. I really need to stop being so cool.
What was the last race that you went and spectated?
What do you order at Chick-fil-A?
Last flavor of ice cream that you ate?
Who had a long run or race this weekend? How did it go?
