Shaggy Mountain morning. Because of the fire, some of the group decided to meet and run in South Jordan. I needed to stay close to home for mornings with the kids and carpool duties, so I said I was just going to run it backwards...then if the road was closed I would be running down and out of the canyon and not past the "road closed" signs :)
I figured no one was running with me, so I took too long getting ready to leave...but to my surprise Bruce was there! So, he had to deal with my slow pace, but we had a great time running the course backwards. It was kind of a head trip for me! The hills come in different places and I'm so used to doing it one way I know HOW to run it. But backwards? Man, it was tougher than I thought. We also took the new up and over hill back to 7300W so we could still get the Mario Kart strip in...so an extra 1/2 mile!
