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!

AM- 6 easy miles.

PM- Wow, what a day.  I woke up at 4 am for my morning run, then quickly got ready for work and ate breakfast.  Then off to work.  When I got home, I immediately left with Marci for her doctor's appointment, after which we did some major shopping and I grabbed a piece of greasy pizza for dinner.  Finally got home at 8 pm.  Left on my evening run just after 8:30 pm- ran to the end of the canal and back, 10 miles, exactly 34:45 each way (6:57  pace) with 2 potty breaks in a 2 mile period.  Lots of bugs on the run, including the annoying catepillars that hang from a thread and get all over your clothes.  I'm finding them all over me still. 

Just got home now at 10 pm.  I have to take a quick shower and go to bed- and I have to be awake in under 6 hours to do it all again tomorrow.  I'm tired.  I'm really looking forward to the arrival of our second kid sometime in the next 10 days, so I can sleep more and have more family and running time.  Most people don't associate a new baby with more sleep, but it will be for me.

There are a couple canal trails which go north from Logan. The easiest to find starts on 14th North and 8th-9th east. You can totally see them on Google earth.

Yep, I see it- never noticed it before, probably because I live in south Logan so rarely make it up to 14 N. I might have to add that to a long run sometime.
