5 miles around sugarhouse. my original plan was to run on the wood chips at liberty park, but it was all closed off for construction. they have removed all of the wood chips on the east side, and they were replacing it with what looks to be a branch/extension to the new trolley line. hopefully they aren't getting rid of the entire trail -- i need that soft surface! the park is a mess right now -- looks very similar to the days of the oil spill. most of the east side is taped off.

i saw one other human and he was doing push ups in a puddle.

4 miles. liberty park. a lot of things seem to be holding me back right now. the good news is that i am running striders half on saturday. i'm going into it with a solid four week taper, including 10 days completely off and the bulk of my mileage in the 4-6 mile range. only two 10-milers since the woodlands. no workouts. i'll probably PR.

Race: Striders Half (13.1 Miles) 01:25:34, Place overall: 4

splits: 6:22, 6:22, 6:27, 6:21, 6:21, 6:16, 6:24, 6:28, 6:37, 6:40, 6:51, 6:55, 6:49, :38

this result is about what i expected. i crashed hard at the end -- it was all in the legs. the course starts rolling around mile 8 and it exposed all of my weaknesses. i was passed by two women in the final three miles, and that was tough since i was already feeling weak and dejected. great weather though! 

james and i ran another race in the afternoon -- the salt lake city challenge urban scavenger race. we had to run around downtown with 12 clues about different sites/events and take pictures next to each one. they were giving out $300 for first place, and we thought we might have a shot at it since we are familiar with both salt lake city and running.

we ended up taking third, but their scoring system was much too chaotic and arbitrary to really know for sure (maybe 4th? maybe 118th?). it's a fun concept, but logistically it was kind of a mess. 225 teams/1000+ people (in costume!) and everyone was frantic.
