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- I sure haven't missed my morning run for the past 10 days.  But, back to work.  Left 5 minutes early, so I got in an extra .5 mile.  6.5 miles, 51 min.  Saw 2 people out for a walk- who in tarnation goes for a walk at 4:30 am???

PM- 4 miles with Cody, then 3.5 more alone.  Well, all of it with the jogging stroller.  With a stop at the grocery store and the playground, where McKinley took a good 6-ft tumble off some equipment.  Ouch.  She's ok, though.  Slow- between the 88 deg heat and the stroller, any speed was impossible.  1 hour.

You mean besides you?

I'm out for a run, not a walk. Entirely different.

That means you are more weird. And anyone who has ever went on a 14 mile trail run with you at that crazy hour is an idiot. They deserve to sprain their ankle twice!

"Tarnation"- I haven't heard that one for a while.

Us up here in Logan speak our own language, Clyde!
