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, but probably my fastest morning run ever.  I set a new record- 14 holes!  I usually get somewhere between 11-13, but never more than that.  Got 14 today with a minute to spare.  Oh, I'm being followed by a moon shadow... moon shadow, moon shadow...

PM- Big Workout.  Ran to Cody's, then to Paul's.  Ran into Providence and took a quick potty break/drink.  Then we were off for an 8 mile tinman tempo on the Providence/Millville hill loop- first mile is uphill, then the rest is downhill, flat, or rolling.  First 3 miles were 7:05 (uphill), 6:17, 5:58.  Then I had to stop for another potty break.  2 more miles, then another potty break- ugh.  Ridiculous.  Then 3 more miles.  Working hard and very tired by the end- 8 miles is a long way to tempo, especially when it is 90 degrees.  Total tempo time was 49:00 even (6:07 pace).  Tired.  4 miles very slow cooldown, 16 total for the run in 1:51:00, 6:56 avg.

41 miles in 2 days.  Either 12 or 18 more planned for tomorrow (depending if I can drag my lazy butt out of bed).  At least I am second on the mileage board right now...

Adrenaline- 501 (retired, already in the trash!), Tangent 2- 56
