Salt Lake City

This past Saturday, I got to explore Salt Lake City with Deb and Shep. They had scouted out the downtown and planned our morning run. Running is a great way to see a city. It was a beautiful time of year to visit Utah. I think the highlight of our SLC visit was going to the Dowtown Farmers Market. The market, in Historic Pioneer Park, is one of the largest that we have ever been to. First, we spent some time on the beautiful grounds of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The morning light was fabulous and the Salt Lake Temple was positively glowing. The flowers and gardens were stunning. We had an action packed agenda, so I had little time to dilly dally. I took a few photos, and we were on our way. 

After walking around the temple and then stopping by the Tabernacle, we headed over to Historic Pioneer Park. There were tons of vendors. We tested food samples, bought vegetables, shopped for crafts, and visited with some of the not-for-profit organizations who had set up booths. We were running, but there was a bicycle valet for those who came on two wheels. The vegetable bounty indicated that harvest time is here. The park was jammed with happy people enjoying the wonder of nature.


Debbie even got to try her hand at a few tricks, compliments of an illusionist dressed like a chef. 

It wasn’t too busy downtown. Salt Lake City was very clean and it was apparent that the authorities had everything under control.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
