A nice 5-miler
I ran 5-miles on the Jordan River Parkway. My wife and two grandkids who are visiting us came with me, and the kids played on a playground that is next to the Parkway while I ran. My pace was about 10:30 - 11:00. Due to getting the grandkids ready, we were late getting out, and the temperature was in the high 80s to low 90s (F) during my run. I enjoyed the run and didn't push for speed.
