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- BW.  None of the usual big workouts sounded interesting today, so I made up a new one.  I did 4 miles warm up, then did repeats- 2 miles@MP (5:55 pace), 1 mile@CV (5:35 pace), 2MP, 1CV, 2MP, with 1/4 mile rest between repeats.  Did the run on the Community Park trail, a .7 mile paved loop.  Very breezy w/18 mph sustained wind, which made it a bit interesting.  Splits were 11:50, 5:35, 11:49, 5:44, 11:38.  Had a sideache and really felt bad on the second CV, so I took an extra long rest to make sure I had some juice for the last one.  Genearally pleased with the workout.  3 miles cooldown, 16 miles total in 1:54:47 (7:10 avg).

Great run, sorry I could be here to run with you, but camping won out over running the rest of the weekend!

James- Marci got me one for Christmas last year. So yes. But even without one, Community Park has the miles marked.
