Waterton Canyon 12.5

Ran Waterton Canyon this morning from the Parking Lot up to the Dam and back. 12.5 miles on my Garmin. Left at 9. Took 1:48:10. 55 Out and 52 Back.

Alicia and I ran it. It was a bit chilly at the start, with clouds (40 degrees). Once we got in the canyon, there was a head wind, not real strong, but enough to notice. The canyon caused a wind tunnel effect in some spots. I had a long sleeve shirt over a short sleeve and gloves with shorts. We stopped a couple of times for gu or equitpment adjustment or to use the porta potti.

Got into a good pace on the way back, the sun came out, downhill, it was fun. Saw some Big Horn sheep. Picked it up the last mile back to the parking lot.

Lots of runners out today, some bikers and hikers, but lots of runners. We ran an easy pace. Alicia saw some of her triathlon competitors, 3 ladys who were running fast ahead of us then on the way back.

Here's my Gramin data but it lost signal a few times and probably gave me too much mileage looking at the data on the map.
