Pete’s been busy building up his fitness for Superior 100. In the next few days, we will post a few recent workout highlights.
March 26th: March and April are usually work travel season for me, which means I get the lucky chance to run all over the country! This week, I was in Salt Lake City, the first time I’ve really ever spent any time in the city. This is an amazing place, with expansive desert on one side, a cool and open urban setting with a city that feels like it was built yesterday, and the majesty of the Wasatch Range towering over everything just to the East. My schedule only allowed for an early morning run, so on Thursday, I planned out a four mile out-and-back run heading straight for the mountains–and fearing that I would get to them before I turned around (they looked pretty imposing). I imagined an incredible morning with the sun rising over the mountains, with stunningly blue and clear skies.
What I got was something a bit different.
Apparently, dawn comes a bit later to Salt Lake than Cincinnati. Fortunately, my route got me just to the foothils before I had to turn around. I think that Utah is the 27th state I’ve now run in–I am most fortunate to be able to travel to so many great places.
