Most of our Wasatch team and Jeff met and went up to the start of the Ogden Marathon to run 13-18 miles depending on how we were feeling. I'll describe the run. Painful. Most of the run was into a pretty good head wind with hail blowing into our faces. I hope the weather is better next week for the striders half (for those of you running it). I was pretty happy with my run considering I never got into a groove and the weather wasn't co-operating. Chad and BG smoked it. Fisher and Shane had to take off around mile 9/10.

16- 8:30 heading it home. wanted to hit 16 for the run - weather getting worse still. felt like I was being pushed sideways most of the miles..
Good run to have done. Go Swamp Donkeys!
