Wow, 4:am comes early. Got it out of bed and on the road! It was just about 50f this morning and it was just super peaceful. I think I only saw two vehicles on the road and probably five other runners......I don't know if I'm ready but I doing the Nestle 5k in Springville Utah. Hope to see You there!
