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!

It's my birthday today!  The big 3-0!  I can't believe I'm 30.  And no, I'm not running 30 miles today, although maybe this week.

Unfortunately, Adam and Holt are already in that age group, and Paul, Clyde, and James will turn 30 within a few months, so it's not like I'm moving into an easier age group or anything.  Cody should be the biggest beneficiary next year...

Happy Birthday!! Welcome to the club, I didn't think I would like it but I do. It is so much better than the 20's.

Happy Birthday Jon!!! Maybe you can now graduate to new shorts?! haha It was fun to see you guys at the marathon. Good luck with all your running this 30th year of your life. I hadn't realized how crazy the 30+ age division will now be!

Happy Birthday! From what I've read you could be hitting your prime for the marathon.
