To freedom hills, up the switchbacks, and home on BST.   The air was so brisk and scrubbed clean I could taste it.  The headwind on the way out was a bit cold, so coming home was perfect, right at sunset over a brooding western sky.

I got up early to meet Amy and AndyB for a run up City Creek Canyon.  We had a little trouble getting together due to accidents on I-15 and my inferior communication skills.  Once we hit the canyon all was well.  Amy was a rockstar and hung with the boys.  Andy never broke a sweat, and I had solid effort.  We couldn't get to the top of the road due to deep snow, around 2'.  I didn't want to flounder for the next 1/2 mile falling through the crust, so we turned around and enjoyed descending from 6100'.

Usually I have to go skiing to see scenery that beautiful.  I didn't expect to be running in 3" of snow one day before May.  I'm glad I was. 

My legs still aren't right.  I'm will continue to take it easier this week and let nature do it's thing.  I don't want the medical people getting involved if I can avoid it.  But scraping sounds kind of nice. 

 p.m. 6 hours core, upperbody and cross training with lawnmower, trimmer and edger.
