Rich and I got up at 6:20am and quietly got ready. It was nice that we were able to just walk a couple blocks to the START line. It was chilly but not too cold and I was anxious to get going!! The course for this race is very different from any half I've done before. It has LOTS of uphill!! Rich wanted to take it easy so he decided to run with me! I always do better when I run with him! It was a beautiful course, we started at the Salt Lake library and ran UP almost to Hogle Zoo, ran through the U of U campus and past Primary Children's Hospital. Then we got to go downhill (which was hard on my knees) and through City Creek Canyon...SO BEAUTIFUL!! We rounded out in front of the State Capital building and back downtown.
We walked back to Little America and requested a late checkout so we could go sit in the hot tub. IT WAS HOT!! Super hot!!
We got all cleaned up and checked out and took TRAX to The Gateway for some window shopping and lunch! Then we walked around City Creek again for a bit. We had a nice day together!!
