crack of dawn 8k -- this race is very aided so the time is meaningless other than comparing it to past years (28:14 in '12 and 27:02 in '13). the slappy downhill felt pretty bad on my legs. there is really no reprieve until the last quarter mile when there is a slight bumpy hump to get to the finish. results.

james and i met up with devra, jenny, and tyler at the finish and we ran from olympus hills to hogle zoo and back via wasatch blvd/bike path/wasatch drive (~11 miles). i was really struggling to keep up and my legs were locking and buckling and noodling and grapevining without my consent. it was good for me though. i wanted to log a longer effort on tired legs and i was very happy to have the company.

pm - 4 mile walk.

Winner winner, thai for dinner. What happened to your glorious June 1 post?

From Rob Murphy on Sat, Jun 07, 2014 at 11:44:03 from

I'd say that's substantial improvement over the last two years. Definitely bodes well for Deseret News!

Nice streak of 1st place. You're a winner in my book.

Roll your calves over a can of beans...then open the can and eat the beans. Works every time...

Yo Allie, Hard to improve on perfection.....but you did it! Congrats on another #1 finish!

From Toby on Sat, Jun 07, 2014 at 18:09:26 from

I love all your benchmarking Allie! Way to get a great workout in on very tired legs! Woot Woot!!!

Great job - my understanding is the fewer minutes and seconds it takes to run a race, the better. I'll ask Jeeves and get back to you though.

From ACorn on Sun, Jun 08, 2014 at 08:15:20 from

Great race and win! Very solid time.
