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- 7

PM- Had the mow the jungle known as my lawn when I got home from work- very, very long.  However, the most awesome neighbor in the world (Cody) brought over his mower and helped, so it went rather quickly.  Then we went running together, both of us pushing two kids.  Ran 4 miles with Cody, then ran 3 more miles with just my kids.  We had to run to Planet Fitness to get the water bottle I left there.  I think we just barely snuck under 9 min pace for the run- smoking!

you are next in line for the book.

hey- enlighten me. the race repots-- a three star race, four star race etc- very confusing- are you counting number ones and twos? or just two? or just ones? huh??

From Jon on Tue, May 26, 2009 at 21:42:52 from

For me, I only count number two's. Too many number one's to count.

wow, I must need to increase my fiber intake. I can't imagine a five star race based on that criterion. I'm happy with a one star race... whats the secret?

Lots of brocolli. And carrots and apples.

Its not a talent he has, its a curse!

From Jon on Tue, May 26, 2009 at 23:31:34 from

Cody, that's the same thought I had, too.

I did have what I could count as a 30 star day the day I tried a tempo run after a 30 mile bike ride- but believe me you really really don't want to know the details.
