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 miles, 4 shooting stars.  Warm.  My left eyelid started twitching last night.  I hoped it would be gone in the morning but it is still here.  Funny, yet annoying.

PM- 7 miles with the jogging stroller, Cody, and Paul.  7.25, actually, but I'll round down.  Naked.

767- 389

Weight: 0.00

Is this a sign of something...fast twitch muscles all hyped up for this weekend's race?

From Chad on Thu, Aug 07, 2008 at 11:47:56

Jon, you have a rare condition called Twitchhuponastaritis, which is the result of looking at too many shooting stars. Dangerous, yes, but rarely fatal.

FYI, I heard on the news last night that Monday night-Tuesday morning is supposed to be a meteor shower.

From Adam RW on Thu, Aug 07, 2008 at 21:04:43

I didn't know Cody and Paul could both fit in the jogging stroller. That is a lot of weight to be pushing.

Are you calling me fat?

From Jon on Thu, Aug 07, 2008 at 23:06:15

I do think you weigh more than Paul, Cody.

From Adam RW on Fri, Aug 08, 2008 at 09:26:44

Cody, I think it would be fair to say that the two of you together equal a typical American, so I'm calling you half a fat.
