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.  I had to do the last 3 at ~6:15 pace in order to have time to eat bagels.  Because, for the first time ever, I was able to participate in Bagel Tuesday at the gym!  After working out, I at a nice Einstein's bagel- blueberry with blueberry cream cheese.  Then, after my shower, I figured I should eat one for Paul, so I had a cherry with almond cream cheese.  On my way out the door, I decided to eat one for Cody, as well, so had a cinnamon sugar bagel with strawberry cream cheese.  Supposing I only pay $8/month for my gym membership, they didn't make any money from me this month.  And that doesn't even count what I ate on Pizza Monday.  Of course, I don't think I lost any weight with my 3 bagels, either.

PM- Thought about a big workout but my legs immediately said "no".  Ran around Logan for 10 miles.  Wanted 14, but ran out of time before I had to go home with the kids, and I'm too tired to go out again.  I can easily make up the miles tomorrow and Fri.

Knowing me, you could get it during the afternoon run.

I eat a Bagel pretty much everyday for lunch. I love them. I'm glad you didn't eat mine. :-) Great complex carb food so you will be fueled back up. Have a good day.
