Personal:

I have 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!

Misery, thy name is Jon.

Nothing today. Too much pain. Didn't even bring the gym bag to work. Maybe I'll try some light stationary bike in the upcoming days. No running for a while- I'm in too much pain.

PM- So running with a bruised or cracked rib is extremely stupid. First, I received 3 shots today for my India trip, so my shoulders are very sore. Then, I decided I could still run and went to Paris Mountain with Aaron and Seth. Right from the start, I felt like I was slowly suffocating- I couldn't breathe quite deep enough, and I certainly couldn't take deep breaths to catch up. But I did ok until about an hour, then gradually slowed. At 1:10, I lost the group, but they waited for me to catch up, though I slowed even more and fell behind again. By this point, any step that jarred me at all hurt my ribs, so I really tensed up. Between the combination of the tense core, unusual shoulder movement, and chest injury, my back suddenly tightened in 2 places and I could barely run. I half walked, half slow-jogged back to the car on the road, hoping to hitchhike. The last 30 minutes was on the short, short list of most miserable experience on a run. No fun at all. I'm sore all over, tired, and can't breath. Anyways, I think I'll take it easy for a few days. Like I said, don't try running with a bruised rib. I think it was around 9.5 miles in 1:50+.

On a good note, I got a solid 8 hours sleep last night for the first time in months, and hope to again tonight, as well.

AM- 7. Only planned on 6 but felt better than expected

Lunch- Ultimate frisbee. A bit cooler today, low 80's. Big crowd, 8 vs 8. I ran full speed into another guy's shoulder and am pretty sure I bruised a rib right by my sternum. Still hurts to take big breaths, cough, etc. I was only out of the game for 5 minutes, though, but had a bit of trouble recovering afterwards.
