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!

Nice run, glad you are feeling better. How is the whole home move coming along?

From Jon on Wed, Apr 02, 2008 at 09:45:42

Right now all my stuff is in storage, my wife and kid are at her parent's house in IF, and I am sleeping on Cody's floor. So not too good.

From jtshad on Wed, Apr 02, 2008 at 09:49:13

Well, if you make it up to IF to visit your lovely family, let me know and we can get a run in.

When do you get into your new house, I had thought you had already closed on it?

From Jon on Wed, Apr 02, 2008 at 10:19:53

I may be coming up this weekend and staying a few days to give poor Cody a break from me, and to see my family. I'll let you know if I do.

We had some huge problems with our lender and actually dumped him and started with a new one yesterday. We were supposed to close March 25, and are hoping the new loan will be ready to close sometime next week. Stressful.

That would be great. I am thinking of running a long run (20 miles) on Saturday with Dan S (from the Blog) and maybe a few others if you are interested. The pace would likely be in th 8:00 range (maybe some faster ones thrown in if you are up for it).

Let me know. Good luck with lender, sorry about all the trouble.

From Jon on Wed, Apr 02, 2008 at 11:42:20

I am running the Strider's 1/2 marathon Saturday, so wouldn't come up until after that. But I would likely stay through Monday and maybe Tuesday.
