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 mile meteor shower run.  Running was secondary today to looking upwards.  Saw 29 meteors in 48 minutes, pretty good supposing the shower averages 1 meteor/minute when you can see the whole sky and there is no light pollution.  The last meteor was the brightest, and one of them was very slow moving and lasted almost 5 seconds.  It was chilly this morning and hard to get out of bed, but well worth the show.  I feel sorry for everyone who slept in.

PM- Ran by Cody's but he wasn't home.  Ran to planet walk via Willow Park.  At the end of planet walk I ran into Paul.  Ran to his house, did a lap around the LHS grass loop, back to Paul's, then home.  Easy pace- 7:15-7:25, with the last mile a bit quicker.  59:27, more than 8 miles.  Round down.

Adrenaline- 489, 768- 140

I only got to see 1 shooting star, but I had lots of street lights on my run (forgot to get in a dark area until I saw the first one then it was too late to get a good dark running area.

Didn't get up to run but i did sleep on the tramp with the kids, it was a good show especially at around 3am when I woke up to watch for a minute!

Thank you for feeling sorry for my lazy butt... You do make it sound like a missed the show of the year.

From Jon on Tue, Aug 12, 2008 at 13:41:39

From what I read, this was the best show of the year. Sorry.

From Paul Petersen on Tue, Aug 12, 2008 at 13:58:56

Don't feel sorry for me. I was able to google it and find a sample picture. Good enough.

From Jon on Tue, Aug 12, 2008 at 14:22:19

I should have expected that response, Paul...

well, you kind of asked for it.
