The skies were a little threatening, but they didn't drop much rain on me. I drove through beautiful Utah and pulled over to take a couple of pictures. I can't wait to head back south towards Arches National Park when I've got a little more time to enjoy. They picked a gorgeous spot for a rest area. Who wouldn't like to picnic here?
I arrived in Provo to pick up my race packet with 4 hours to spare. I didn't have reservations, which probably isn't very smart when there's a marathon. I asked at the La Quinta and she said they were booked, but she heard the Sleep Inn across the street still had rooms. I checked, but they only had the jacuzzi suite available. I will be forced to recuperate in a hot tub with jets of water pummeling my aching muscles. I know you feel sorry for me.
