Forest Park Sprint (Red).

Everything was good except for 9, 10 and 11. 9 I took the wrong trail. It didn't take too long to recover, but it scared me a bit. Went slow on 10, but didn't really go off course. Overshot 11.

Petrified Forest and Painted Desert National Park today on our way from Mesa, AZ to Grants, NM.

Interesting drive today. We saw some light rain and snow, lots of big storm clouds all around us throughout the day, and deep snow as we passed over the mountains around Heber, AZ. There had been a few inches of new snow over night in the mountains so it was very beautiful to drive through. Amazing considering we were only 100 miles from Phoenix.

Running Trail race 1:29:04 [4] 8.79 mi (10:08 / mi) +158m 9:36 / mi
ahr:160 max:171

"15k" McDowell Sonoran Challenge. Great trail run. Hillier than I was expecting, but with hindsight not surprising since we were running around the flanks of two mountains. Most of the trail was a gravel like surface that made for nice running. We had a few hundred feet of deep sand in a wash bottom, and another section of boulders. Since I have not been training to run nine mile races, it went better than I expected. I passed a few people on the long uphills on the back half and finished strong. 14th among the men, and 25th of 58 overall (winning time was 1:04:27).

The race is organized by a group that is trying to buy this area as a urban preserve for the city of Scottsdale. They have about half the land now, and if they get it all it will be about 56 square miles -- the largest urban preserve in the country, and 1/3 of Scottsdale. I hope they can get that done.
