The weather here has been amazing all week so I decided to take advantage and hit some trails right be where I work. It was great! I took it nice and easy – the hard work for my half marathon training is in the bag. I even brought my phone so I could stop and take some pictures for you guys. This helped me a lot because I’m usually focused on time and pace and today I just wanted to get outside and enjoy the day. I don’t know and you but time (and miles) always seem to go by faster when I’m on a trail.
Here’s some of what I saw!
Single track (the most fun part!) right along Emigration canyon.
Also the shadiest spot.
Second half fasting west (and the sun – oops!).
Hills to the east. 70 F and clear blue skies. Yes please!
Lots of signs so I can’t possibly get lost.
Looking at the south end of the valley.
All in all 4.05 miles at 9.15 min/mile pace (including all the photo stops) at 700 ft elevation gain. Perfect.
April mileage: 38.10 miles/61.3 KM
ATWRBR mileage: 160 miles/257.5 KM
