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!

Ran with Walter and Cody early this morning.  Met at First dam and ran Bonneville Shoreline trail to Green Canyon, then up all the way to the end of the main road.  Perfect running weather- 50 deg, breezy at times, overcast, with one rainstorm for about 30 minutes of the run.  Unlike the very snowy May 5 run up this trail, the snow was all gone.  It was a very peaceful, quiet morning- there were relatively few campers due to the bad weather.  Cody's foot hurt him real bad the whole run so he was very quiet, too.  6.5 miles and ~1500-2000 ft up in 58:30 min (9:00 avg), down in 46:20 (7:07 avg).  Finished off the run with 2 donuts!  What a great way to start the day.

I like the way you finish your runs. I find the creme filled to be the most fulfilling repeats...

Also, great new picture. I knew you were cheating you don't even touch the ground!

wow JOn...I would comment on those bright green shorts that definitly don't match the rest of your apparel but i am not going to because i know it will just egg you on to wear it more often.

i still think you are pretty good looking though.

oh and thanks for the donuts.
