A couple of years ago I told my Dad how I wanted to run from Oak Grove to St. George. He didn't like the idea and thought it would be too hard. Well today was the day we tried it out! We drove a couple miles up the Oak Grove road because we knew that time was working against us. We started right around 6. I was pretty optimistic for the first 7ish miles then the climbs kept coming. I didn't expect to have that much climbing. Miles 8-10.5 were the worst. By the time we started getting some rolling hills my legs were already hammered. I endured and made it to the pavement on the turkey farm road. I think if we had more daylight I would have tacked on more mileage. So maybe not the full distance I once envisioned but still a really good workout. 19.25 miles

Woke up to a phone call of my dad wanting to go on a run. We left a car at the end of diagonal and drove up Turkey farm in another car. Parked at Black Gulch and headed out on Lange's Dugway. 6 miles on a trail, super nice conservative pace. Then we got down to highway 18 and the tempo began. I started out with some 7's then poured it on. I waited for my Dad to catch up at mile 6. It was a mistake! I lost some of my momentum. I didn't know I was ready for this run but it worked out decently. 15.08 miles
