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!

Babysitting swap with another family in our neighborhood. And my wife was gone.

I wish I could get up early enough to run in the mornings like you but I love sleep too much. If I don't get my 8.5 hours then there are problems.

From Jon on Thu, Apr 30, 2009 at 08:53:32 from

Nic- I'll admit I'm dead tired right now. I have only been getting 5 hours per night this week. For me to get 8.5, I would have to go to bed at 7:30 pm.
