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- had to do a bit of hard self-motivation at 3:59 am, but finally dragged myself out of bed and onto the road.  Somewhere around 6 miles in 47 minutes.

PM- Hot, 87 deg.  Wanted to get in a decent 10 miles, 7:00-7:30 pace.  First mile was 7:00, next 8 were 6:52-6:58 (at least the ones I got marks on), then did the last one in about about 6:20 or so.  10 miles, 1:08:44, 6:52 avg.  Pretty good for that hot out.

I would have to do more than a bit of self-motivation at 3:59am!! I thought 3:59 only came once a day. Great way to start the week!

We were getting up at the same time...we are crazy, you know that don't you...is running really worth a wake up call before 4am? (Yeah, I know the answer, but still some days are tough!).

Jeff, no comment. Though I know I sure as heck wouldn't get up that early on my birthday!

Jeff was it your birthday yesterday? Happy birthday.

Jon I am guessing that the 70 miles is a type o. If not you are quite amazing

I'm sad that I let you down. The whole no looking at the blog yesterday... I missed this one until now. I think we should all take whatever you run, look at the mileage board and multiply your run by the top number on the blog. I think it would do wonders. By the end of the week we could be in the millions of miles!!!
