Day 17 – Going for a run in a new place

Sure, I’m a competitive runner and it’s about splits, mileage, hitting the weight room. It is also about exploring new places when you travel.

Packing running clothing is pretty simple and pretty small. You need an extra pair of shoes, shove your socks and bra (if needed) in your shoes and grab the appropriate layers. Unlike your other clothes, running clothes do not care if they get wrinkled so shove them in those little corners that otherwise do not get used.

I ran from just outside of the Old Park City Village up to Deer Valley. The sun was setting as I reached the base of the mountain. I looked up and smiled, I felt nothing but joy.
