Ah ya Baby! Decided to hit a good burner today. Started at Wheelers TH up Icebox, Maples then decided to go up ColdWater and take the new loop around Sardine Canyon! The views from up there are awesome. I got caught up looking back down into OV and a root took me down.. No blood, so I was lucky. Great trail conditions - tons 'o Mtn Sloggers out - no other runners, although I think Bryce's car was at the TH, but I never saw him..Were you out there hidin?

Vert 4200

 Here’s looking back down at Pineview from the backside of Sardine Trail…

Talking to the Goat last night and he talked me into meeting him this AM at the top of 27th to run the  Striders MALANS Peak challenge. So, met him and we did about a mile + warm up then hit it. He was gone by the first bridge, in fact I probably went to hard trying to stay up with him. Oh well...

I haven't done the climb since spring and Man I forget how tough that sucka is.. My garmin had it at total time 1:04:13 and Moving time 57:07 so I don't remember standing around for 7 minutes, but maybe my crawl was to slow to register..hahaha. Also side note here  -my Forerunner 205 measured from the 27th to the Peak and back at 4.24, Shane had borrowed one of Striders Garmins and he had it at 4.45 - so maybe time for an upgrade. Oh ya, Sorry Bryce Mt. Goat through a time of 48:10 down....

Vert on the 4.24  = 2,096

Peace.

Early morn cruise around the Middle Fork loop with J. Morning was about as good as they get sun out with a bit of a chill in the Air... I'll tell you - it's getting harder and harder to get excoted to run on the Pavement though.. STGM will probably be my last Roadie 26.2....

Peace.

Sweet AM run with the Goat. Wheelers up to Art Nord and then East Fork Down Middle / Ice Box Wheelers.. Perfect temps and trail!! Trail alert - coming down Ice Box and the Forest service smoothed out that first big down into the creek crossing ... To be honest I kinda liked having the haphazard trail right there - keep a lot of mtn bikers off the trail... Oh well.. Still one of the best stretch's of single track up there!!

Talk about one sweet A' run! Yehaw.. G' and I thought we'd get in a good long run in before Mid-Mountain.. so, we headed up to the Guardsmen TH ( I think..Just right before Brighton) and set out to run the Wasatch Crest Trail and then hook into Millcreek and run down to RattleSnake where we left a car... Great times. Good tough climb up "puke hill" (I guess a few people have named it) then basically an awesome Trail run all the way to RattleSnake.

Ran into a bunch of people getting some last Wasatch 100 training runs in.. Tik Tok.

Thanks again G'! 

I had the vert at 3459 - who knows though this watch is all over the place!

Awesome sunrise morning crusie on Redondo beach with the crew. Went Barefoot on the beach.. Felt awesome - working the calves for shizzle. Also other interesting note. Running at sea level is crazy! The amount of oxygen is unbelievable especially to the amount available at 10,000 ft...
