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- Finally made it up for a trail run again.  I felt like running the FHT but didn't really want to run the Bench, where I knew I would push myself.  So I ran a trail I've never done before- 5.5 miles RT to the waterfalls at Estatoe Gorge and back.  Then ran FHT to the beach at Joccasee, which includes a little bit at the end I've never done before, either.  Saw Merle along the way- he was taking 4 runners on their longest run ever (17 miles) in prep for a 50 miler they signed up for in the fall.  I ended up with about 21 miles in just under 4 hrs running time and 3800 ft climbing.  Wasn't even too hot or too many spider webs.  As soon as I got home, I had to go clean the church for a few hours, then go to Lowe's to get some paving bricks, then mow and trim the lawn, all of which took me until 8 pm.  I really need a nap.  But first I have to start preparing my lesson for church tomorrow.  At least time goes fast when busy.

The week ended up higher mileage than expected, given that I only had 24 miles mid-morning on Thursday.  Unfortunately, I've missed many planned speed sessions, which isn't good for my fast 14k next weekend.  We'll just have to see how it goes.
