Day 3: Provo


June 11

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.

Beautiful area for sure. Another of our hopeful stops.
Waiting the outcome and how the relaxing bath feels to your muscles.
Take care.

Beautiful picnic area!

*sigh* Guess you'll just have to force yourself to enjoy the jacuzzi.

I didn't realize you were heading west to run a marathon! awesome! Utah is a beautiful stage indeed! I think that jacuzzi suite is a perfect match after you run 26 miles!

You're not in my old stomping grounds... It is magical country and I'm pretty sure I've stayed at the LaQuinta in Provo before--I lived about 200 miles south of there. I hope you enjoyed your run (I'm assuming it's already over).
