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!

PM- sick, at home, but pushed the kids around on the bikes a bit in the evening.  Just don't want to be sick anymore. 

Put up a brief review from 2011 with some goals/races for 2012.  Since you were asking, Cody.

Read some interesting reviews of our Liberties as Americans.  America is a great country with great people.  Unfortunately, Washington DC seems to be trying its best to change that and is succeeding at a horrifying rate, even if most people don't seem to know or care.  We, the people, need to say No to DC infringing on our natural and Constitutional rights.  The picture below is sad but true, effective Dec 31, 2011, thanks to NDAA becoming law.

Wow 47 races on the schedule! How many do you anticipate running?

From steve ash on Mon, Jan 09, 2012 at 12:00:02 from

Yeah Jon, Thanks for starting my morning off on a positive note..

No, but seriously it needs to be said and it needs to be changed. I can't believe that bill was ever allowed to pass with some of those provisions. Was this one of those omnibus type bills?

From steve ash on Mon, Jan 09, 2012 at 12:05:42 from

Slippery slope until the whole constitution/bill of rights is gone eventually:(

From Jon on Mon, Jan 09, 2012 at 14:26:36 from

Yes, Steve, I know. I know my posts on the FRB aren't much and might annoy some people, but it needs to be said and this is the only way I have to say it. The NDAA bill was specifically related to the Defense budget and related items (i.e. military detention of Americans).

Andrea- I don't expect to run more than 6 or so of the 47. It's more of a wish list for me to keep track of. I definitely need to narrow it down, though.

I only wish there were more people like you who would have the courage to stand against these things.
