I have four cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I proudly run for the national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- 8.5 or so with Moss at Icar.

Had a lab test all day, so no lunch run. The test was supposed to run until 1 am and then 8 hours again Friday, but we had problems and ended at 5 pm, so that was nice. I need the sleep.

AM- 10 miles at Icar. Ran some of the end ones faster. DOn't know how many, don't know how fast. 

Lunch- 8

I've got to stop waking up from stress at 4 am and get more rest. Unfortunately, tomorrow is going to be an 18 hour work day. That's not going to help any, being at work from 7:30 am till 1:30 am.

Lunch- the big day finally arrived: Jason's last day at GE Greenville. The biggest group of lunch runners ever gathered, all 16 of us (plus non-running Todd) where we listened to a song Jason sang for us (with custom lyrics, of course), then we all went for a nice run, including the hill neighborhood and a visit to the peninsula. Picture 16 guys running down a road- impressive sight. I did 9 miles. Jason will be missed.

PM- had to skip Paris Mtn tonight as I instead spent the afternoon at the pediatric orthopedic doctor. Our youngest broke a bone near her elbow and we thought she might need surgery. Fortunately, she just ended up with a nice, purple cast. She's already used to it.

Ended up getting 6 ez miles while watching the kids at soccer practice.

AM- 10

Lunch- 8 with a small group

PM- Today was a rare 3-run day (maybe my second only). We have approval to officially open the trails behind GE into a marked trail but had to do some minor trail work. 7 of us ran out, moved rocks, ran a bit more. 4.5 miles running. Wore the same shirt as this morning and, boy, it stank. I thought so, and everyone else was complaining, too.
