Mueller Park Trail. The trail was great this morning. It was a bit muddy in spots, but nothing like Saturday. It was all very runnable. I felt great and am recovering well from Saturday's beating. This trail is going to be a lot of fun this Summer and I am going to set a new personal fastest time on the trail before Winter.

Today I ran from my house to Cheese Park, then hopped onto the Bonneville Shoreline Trail and ran to the Dueul Mill Creek trailhead. In was a nice morning, the temperature was just right. 

Here is a photo from the Mudfest last Saturday.

Today's run started out very similar to last Saturday. It was pouring rain. More fun in the mud. Luckily the trails I went on weren't as muddy at the ones last week. I started at the Bountiful 'B' and headed up the ATV trails. About a mile up I got on a trail called the Buckland Ridge Trail. I is a great trail and comes out onto Skyline Drive. I went up the road for a half mile and turned off on the Tuttle Loop Trail. I only went a little way before turning back because there was too much snow. I couldn't believe how much snow was up there this late in the year. I went back and continued on up the road. When I got above 8000 ft it started snowing pretty hard, but I continued onward. I turned off of the road at the Parrish Creek Trail. The top of the trail was hard to follow because of all the snow. When I got to the bottom of the mountain I turned onto the Bonneville Shoreline Trail and headed back to my car. It was 9:00 a.m. when I got back and there was only one other car in the parking lot. that is very unusual for Memorial Weekend. No ATV's or motorcycles around. It was very strange.

In other news, I just picked up a sponsor for the Summer. I will be running for Team Jamba Juice. I am really excited about this, but I will have to put my famous shirt on the shelf for a while. I will be racing in a new team jersey this at all my races in June, July and August.
