13.10 in 1:36:59. 7:24 avg pace. Went up and down Provo Canyon. It was freezing cold on the way up due to a head wind. I like fall, but not when it's that cold. Splits for miles 8-13 for my reference: 7:09, 6:56, 6:40, 7:09, 6:41, 6:37. Legs were unusually sore on the run. I played tennis last night and wonder if that had something to do with it.
Today is actually the day of my favorite marathon. It's the Mid-Mountain Marathon which starts at Deer Valley in Park City and ends at The Canyons. I've run it the last 3 years. It's pretty much all on trail and you get the best views. It is the hardest and funnest marathon I've done. If I wasn't racing next weekend, I would have run it. Next year I think it will be St. George or Mid-Mountain.......or both. Wish I was running it today.
One more week.......
Will lift later this morning.
