Running in the Wild, Wild West

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

I’m still smiling from my wonderful trip out west to Utah for EVO ’10, The Evolution of Women in Social Media. Since I’m in training (I love saying that – it sounds so official) I had to get some runs in while I was there. I originally flew in early to take part in their 5K race but it was cancelled, so I decided to get up that morning and still get my run on.

I didn’t want to mess with the altitude on the first day so I found the Fitness Center

They had plenty of treadmills and Sportscenter on the flatscreen

I did my own 5K

My classic post run pic

After a couple of days I adjusted to the altitude and couldn’t dream of leaving Park City without a quick run through The Canyons.

Yup, I hit High Mountain Road

And saw this was the gorgeous view

And this

And this

I even saw a moose

Beautiful, right? It’s a far cry from running through my Atlanta suburb. Much more scenic, although, I did see someone get arrested on my 4.5 mile trek today, but, ahem, that’s a whole other post.

Such a great place for a run. And to take a break to really appreciate nature.

If I were better I would run more! You are amazing! And seeing someone get arrested is just as cool - it's like Cops - LIVE :)
