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!

AM- upper 30's, blustery wind, drizzly- perfect weather for a winter SC run. My legs felt spunky right from the start as I ran Georgia Road area, my normal, rolling hills route. I've been listening to the Mormon Channel podcasts "Conversations" recently, which make the runs pass quickly. First road run I've worn GPS in 6+ months. I was moving pretty well, hitting the half marathon mark in 1:34 or so. My last 2 miles were about 6:45 pace, which I think is pretty darn good supposing they were net-uphill with a headwind and I felt like I was slowing down. I'm sure I'll feel terrible in some upcoming runs but it was nice to feel great today. Now I just have to work on adding distance/time back and incorporate more trails. Finished just over 15 miles in 1:45-ish (I think I averaged just under 7 min pace) with about 1000 ft climbing.

Lunch- as bad as I felt yesterday, I felt fine today. 11 miles or so. 

I'm being reminded that when I'm getting back in shape, roughly 1/3 of the runs are good/great, 1/3 are mediocre, and 1/3 are terrible. It will be this was for another month or more, I imagine.

Lunch- felt terrible for 45 minutes, then felt slightly less bad (still not good). Called it a day at 8 miles. Blah.

PM- Paris Mtn with Barry. Only my second trail run in 4 months. While I can chug through road runs these days, apparently taking this much time off the trails results in loss of trail legs. I struggled the whole time, working harder than usual on the uneven terrain and crawling up the hills. Pretty pathetic. But it was great to be out there. Weather was great, too- mid 60's, quite nice. 11 miles or so in 1:50.
