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.  I was dead tired when I got in bed last night at 10 pm, but then could not fall asleep for 2 hours.  I hate it when that happens!  So now I am very, very tired today. 

PM- Marci was hosting a baby shower, so the kids and I were banished to the outdoors. I ran an easy 6.5 miles at 9 min pace with the kids, and included a 45 minute stop at McD for food and playplace. It was my first time getting more than ice cream at McDonalds in probably 5 years. I still prefer Wendy's.

Sometimes your body so tire it's hard to relax. Hopefully a better night for you tonight.

McD is good for you. keep eating, next time get the double quarter pounder with cheese, and don't forget to supersize it.

From Jon on Wed, May 13, 2009 at 22:40:09 from

I'm sensing a recurring theme here, Scott.

From redrooster on Wed, May 13, 2009 at 22:43:15 from

hey, you're the guy talkin bout food all the time, I'm just helping you out. when are you going to pace me at 6:15 on my sauerkraut course?

From Jon on Wed, May 13, 2009 at 22:46:38 from

6:15 am? Too late for me.

From Adam RW on Wed, May 13, 2009 at 22:50:12 from

All this food talk this week. You're making me hungry (as I sit here eating a dessert pop...).

From Jon on Wed, May 13, 2009 at 22:52:16 from

Just this week? I always talk about food. Or at least I always think about it.

From redrooster on Wed, May 13, 2009 at 22:57:01 from

no, I am working on establishing a 6:15 tempo pace on my 5K course, not 6:15 AM. It is part of my new "FIRST" training program I am trying out.

Geez, its my daughters birthday and i cant pry her from american idol. that has to be the stupidest show on the planet. right now they are showing these idiots being worshipped by their hometown crowds. why are idiot lip syncers with tattoos and dyed hair idolized when we scientists and engineers are treated like pariahs? would fans idolize us like this for curing cancer or solving the nuclear fusion containment problem? what a disgrace. yours a grumpy old guy.

From Jon on Thu, May 14, 2009 at 00:02:36 from

Let me know when you want the tempo, and I can do it.

From marci on Thu, May 14, 2009 at 01:46:19 from

wow Jon your friend is bashing your favorite show. :) I won't tell him how you Tivo it and how many times you voted. :)

From Jon on Thu, May 14, 2009 at 09:29:28 from

Yeah, Scott, watch what you say... if you want me to pace you, you better not trash talk Idol. I'm just glad Kris made it to the final.
