7:20 a.m. I started out planning to head North on BST to get 12ish miles. I saw a guy coming along 400 E. that was travelling at a pretty good clip, and we ended up running together for 8 miles at the back end of his 21 miler. Ben Wxxxxx. He's shooting for a 3:30 at Ogden, so the pace was comfortable 8mm, and company was enjoyable. After he left, I ran marathon pace or better in a quest for some water. Alas, I came up empty at both the golf course and West Bountiful Park.
Ash wouldn't come with, even though she is always begging to go for a morning run/ride. She was too interested in watching pony videos. What's with little girls and cartoon ponies?
So, a pretty good run, my longest in a while. I ate 2 toasts before heading out, but no fuel during the run, until I ate a really dry pack of smarties with less than a mile to go, when I was disappointed by locked bathrooms and inoperable fountains at the park.
