Orem, Ut —> elevation 4,756 feet
Where I am staying, AZ —> elevation 1,214 feet
Let’s just say that my run felt amazing yesterday morning and I blame it all on the elevation, leaving at 7 a.m. (thank goodness for some sleep..) and the 50 degree weather. Maybe I will be a snowbird and live in Utah in the summer and migrate down to Arizona for the winter. Sounds like a plan to me and I am sure Brooke will be on board with this idea because she loves her cousins down here.
10.1 miles @ a 7:24 average pace. Started with a 7:50 mile and worked my way down to a 6:35 mile to end with. A lot of those miles were on the dirt paths which felt great on my legs. Dirt (soft to medium surfaces) definitely decreases the chances of overuse injuries. PS my calves/shins feel 100%… I am so glad I took that break.
No trip to Arizona is complete without a stop to Bosa Donuts. Clearly a great way to refuel.
My love language = apple fritters.
I went with some friends to Downtown Phoenix to do some wild and crazy things.
I rode this bike across the rope. It was scary. I have a video of it that I will post later.
Some crazy things were seen here.
And then we grabbed some amazing thin crust pizza.
Reason #4213 we love coming to visit my brother…. March weather.
Something weird is going on with my commenting system on the blog and I started getting 1000000000s of spam comments so I am having to approve comments for the next little while… still comment pretty please because I love hearing from you but it may take a few minutes for me to approve them.
What is your love language?
What is the elevation where you live? Do you notice a big difference when you run somewhere with a different elevation?
