Twice up the Dimple Dell Mt Road and twice down Wasatch for a total of 21 hot misserable miles this morning......it was a horror story with the heat jumping over 92 degrees really early, The only good part is that it was only 15% humidity and I finished the run standing upright and in pretty good condition...41 days till showtime at Big Cottonwood.

21 miles this morning running my Dimple Dell to Wasatch training course. 70 degrees with 64% humidity. 34 days till Big Cottonwood. Anybody else here on the FRBlog doing this marathon or half marathon? Speak up.....

FYI - When I run the DDMR to Wasatch I start from home at 4800 ft. in elevation that goes up to just about 6000 ft. and then back home.

The starting line at BC is at the 10,000 foot elevation.
