HEBER CITY — Our ride and run was very nice. We had one train car full of runners — over 50 people — that rode from Heber City to Soldier Hollow before we all got out and ran back to Heber City.

When the train started, we had a prayer for the families of those affected by last Monday's bombings. We had two great young ladies who ran in the Boston Marathon speak briefly. We collected a sizable amount of money for One Fund Boston, and we danced in the aisles to a couple of songs.

Then the train stopped at Soldier Hollow. We unloaded, took a picture — and ran back to the depot in Heber City via beautiful downtown Midway. It was a brisk and beautiful evening and I think everyone had a great time.
