4 miles at lunch at 9:32 A.P.  Bonneville Loop and City Creek/Memory Grove coming back.  32 degrees and overcast. Happened to run past the State Capitol east side when Trump was about to arrive there to speak.  Apparently the protesting Trump haters walking from their cars to the Capitol's south side expect you to get out of their way as you run down the street.  Such a tolerant bunch.
