Personal:

I have four (soon to be five) 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 used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

Lunch- Dan asked me this morning if I wanted to do a workout. I was wary due to knee but he said he was feeling sluggish so I should be able to keep up. Ran to lake, did 7 loops of .86 miles, so about a 10k. 5:10, 5:17, 5:12, 5:06, 5:08, 5:04, 4:53, 35:53 total. That works out to 5:50-ish pace. I never would have guessed I could do any sub-6 miles, much less a sub-36 min 10k. First sub-6 miles since August. 10.5 miles total.

Last night I took Aspen to urgent care due to a bug bite that seemed to be causing nausea, headache, and stiffness. Today, Quincy has a fever and Zach is throwing up in massive quantities and frequency. His first one was while lying on my pillow, which is now in the garbage. Thank goodness for our waterproof mattress cover, at least. One of those days, I guess.

PM- Long day at work, 11+ hrs in all. Snuck in a quick hour of xt before heading straight to church for YM, although I almost immediately left to take my daughter to urgent care due to some increasing reactions from a bug bite several days ago. She'll be fine.

PM- PM with Barry and Seth. Pretty warm, above 70 deg. Felt pretty bad the first 45 min (hike only Brissy Ridge didn't help), then felt ok the rest of the run. HR was a lot lower, not sure what to make of it- 145 avg, lowest ever for a run. 14.5 miles and 2000-ish feet in 2:22.
