8 miles on the mueller park trail with tara and cynthia.

the first half of the run was in the dark, but luckily tara lent me her cool hat with the built-in beetle eye lights. there were only a few stumbles here and there, but we all made it through the run without a significant spill. once it became light enough to see the trees, it was a beautiful, beautiful sight. so many vibrant colors (mostly on tara, but the trees looked good too).

Dark running, love it. It keeps you on your toes. Don't want to trip or bump into anything/anyone. Dawn is my personal favorite moment of the day & living it while running is just ... priceless.

Sounds like a fun morning.

eric -- i totally agree.

Thanks for meeting up Allie! Let me know a good place to run around you next time.

Eric- It keeps you on your toes, and sometimes breaks your toes (or big toe nail)

Beautiful morning out there! Glad you got to enjoy it with some amazing women.

Amazing time of year and my favorite weather for early morning runs. Good going and tear up your 5K!

I love Mueller Park! It's so beautiful anyway, but especially right now! I am up there probably 3-4 times a week for at least a walk if not a run. (It's my Bountiful Boulevard run). Glad you guys had a good time!

It sounds like a beautiful run. Isn't Mueller Park in Bountiful?
