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!

Lunch 8 with Todd and Jim.  Still undecided about doing the 5k in 2 weeks.  It's a big race around Greenville- 2000 runners, loops around downtown on roads.  What does the FRB think?

On a related note, some runners may be able to relate to this video.  And some wives, including my own.

why not do it? It will probably fun to get out, and it will let you know where you are somewhat fitness-wise. Although, maybe you don't want to know that?

hahahaha! "you are an idiot, have fun on your stupid run"

I like how this exact thing happened just a few minutes ago. HA!

Ha! How true! Loved it

Cody, I figured Bethany would understand it. We need to make sure Jun, Bryce, Jim, Nevels, and Davy show it to their wives, too.
