We went to the temple in the morning, and then Catherine went off for a long run. While she was out, I decided to go run the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. I ran up to the Dry Creek trailhead via Virginia Avenue. From there I ran the BST all the way into City Creek, and then straight home via E Street.
Conditions on the trail ranged from dry to muddy to snow packed, but other than a few sections that were so mucky that I was forced to walk, I ran the whole thing. Just over 10 miles and 16,000 feet of climbing.
Catherine got home from her run shortly after I got home from mine, but unfortunately she got sick shortly after that. That put an end to most of our plans for the rest of the day, but at least we were able to spend time together.
Because I enjoyed yesterday's run so much, I decided to run the same trail this morning. This time I ran the course in reverse, from City Creek to Dry Creek. Roughly the same pace, even though the climb out of City Creek seems steeper than the climb up Dry Creek. It's probably because the trails were drier this morning than they were yesterday.
It rained pretty hard this afternoon, so I don't think I'll be on the trails tomorrow. Instead, I think I'll go for an easy run on the treadmill before work, and if the weather clears up, I'll run up the west side of City Creek on Thursday.
