Thanks for the kind words - it was a really amazing experience. Totally different than anything I have done before. Plus, you can link up sections of it if you didn't want to run the whole thing. The other cool part was the change in topography as the run progressed. Zion seems to be slightly off the radar from a national parks perspective, as I think most people in that area are more likely to go to the Grand Canyon.
oh and got in 8.8 this am in CP in 1:11:33
