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- Semi-long run.  Ran from First Dam up the windy Logan Canyon to the start of the singletrack on the river trail with Cody and Lisa, then back to the car.  Then Paul and Joe joined us and we ran up the hilly Bonneville Shoreline trail and most of the way up Green Canyon.  I gave Paul and Lisa a hard time because they had never ran on the new singletrack that is 2 years old.  Very good run today with a good group- fun and nice to still be running on great trails this late in the year.  No snow on the trails yet.  It's nice that the Logan running group is growing again.  Although I worry about the mental state of a few of them-- they seem to have some abnormal (unhealthy?) infatuation with waving their arms in the air and screaming like girls when they run fast.  16 miles, 2:08.

Now it's off to Florida for a week where the weather will be warmer but I will have very little time for running.

yeah, you gotta be careful running here in logan...those crazy people can be dangerous. they could run you right off a trail or hit you as they flail by.

Have fun in Florida is it work related?

From Jon on Wed, Nov 19, 2008 at 13:35:37

Yes, work related with 12-16 hour days. My hotel is right on the beach but I haven't had time to even step foot on it yet...
