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 was very hot after work and I wasn't in the mood for a run.  So, I ate dinner and then did the best thing to make myself run- I had my wife drop me off later somewhere and I had to run home.  She dropped me off at the start of the river trail, and I ran up to almost Guinavah Malibu (Cody, that is the correct spelling)- about 5 miles in 38:36.  Then I ran down, starting to push the pace a bit at the end of the singletrack (34:59 down, including 13:00 for the last 2 miles).  I tried to stay between 6:45-7:00 the rest of the way home (just over 5 more miles)- I did the last 4 in 28:13, so I was a hair slow.  However, it was completely dark so I'm sure that slowed me down some, especially on the canal.  All in all, a good run supposing I didn't want to get started.

Hope to get 80+ miles this week, but it is very doubtful since I will be travelling Wed-Fri.

That canal trail is difficult to run fast on. I think the footing is much harder to manage than the river trail as the trail is so hard. Safe Travels..

It usually doesn't slow me down, just when it is dark so I can't see.
