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!

Do you want to run sometime this week? I might come up to Logan, or you could come down here if Marci comes down to do Christmas stuff with Allie, or both.

Leave it to jon to scour the town for dirt. Nice run.

Go to IF on Saturday! Let's email about a run.

Give me ring when you get to town and we definitely hook up for some runs. Travel safely.

Uh, Jon, most people call that land FARMS. Careful that you don't run into any cows or step in any treasures.

From Jon on Wed, Dec 19, 2007 at 11:56:11

No, not FARMS. That is where James runs. I run in areas near the Logan river, far from FARMS. Only big creatures are the occasional deer.

The gravel is all gone now due to the snow.
