turkey

October 10, 2009, Saturday. H found a 6K Turkey Trot in SLC for November 26 – two of them, actually: one in City Creek Canyon and one in Millcreek Canyon – and immediately started emailing my friends to tell them that I would be running for T’giving. So now I have to start running again and H, that wretch, does not because his knees won’t take it. I had my first go at it this morning and managed 30 minutes at a very slow pace without losing a lung in the process, this being my first time running above sea level. For the record: Cottonwood Heights is very hilly.

  1. Our first trip to the Grand Canyon really let us know how much difference there is between 1800' above sea level vs. 7000+. Who knew 30 steps was so taxing. :)

  3. Now that I've picked myself off the floor from laughing so hard ... yes, ridiculous, vindictive rodent indeed. Erik Peters, is that you?

    @Yankee1969 - Dude. These mountains are insane.

  4. OK, now I am rolling on the floor laughing....this is a new title to add to Mr. Mouse's current three titles at at the office ...Mr. Mouse, Ridiculous Vindictive Rodent. He is truly evil, but I am convinced Friend Mouse has one up her sleeve....
