Early afternoon run after the Easter egg hunt at Foothill Village. Drove over to Memory Grove as I had not been up City Creek in awhile. Decided to go all the way to the top. At about 2 miles to go there was snow crossing the road where there was shade and the last half mile was impassable running as it was more than knee deep. I decided to march it out up to the sign for no bikes entry into upper City Creek Canyon and the end of the road. That did mess up my over all average but that's fine. It was a perfect day for running. I must have looked like a looney trudging through knee deep snow in only shorts and no shirt on... From the lack of fresh tracks I think I'm the only one to have gone that high today although the lower canyon was packed for this beautiful day. The way down was a bit of a progression. After the snow mile (9:27) I went: 6:04, 5:54, 6:11, 5:37, 5:28, 5:26...
Happy Easter everyone.
