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- 8.5.  Spent all weekend trying to fix my darn computer.  Hate viruses.  At least the Broncos won and Pittsburgh lost (maybe the only time I root for Oakland).

PM- Pizza night at Planet Fitness.  I downed 2 pieces before I even started running, and ended up eating 5 pieces.  Maybe 6.  Not sure.  But I am sure I ran 10.5 miles while watching a combination of MNF pregame, Seinfeld, and Cash Cab.  Not too shabby.

Jon, nice 8.5-miler and it was probably the only time that I have been happy that the Raiders won. Now, our Broncos just have a get a win next week (i.e., they're playing a pretty good team) and if the Cowboys can bounce back against the Chargers, we'll be back in the AFC West Race. Go Broncos and happy running!

Pizza before running, now that is good training for your 100-miler.

From Jon on Wed, Dec 09, 2009 at 23:17:58 from

Yeah, Nan, that's actually what I figure, too. Davy scarfed down 2 Wendy's bacon burgers at an aid station when I paced him in a hundred, so I figure I need to get my stomach that tough, too.
