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!

I put some goals and potential races for this year on my Green Shorts Running blog.  Basically, it's a whole lot of "I'm not really sure what races I'm going to do this year but will have fun."

PM- Snow day again, worked from home.  Roads are pure ice, and even the snow has a .25" thick layer of pure ice.  Ran to GE and did loops around the track again at 8 pm.  The city is still basically shut down.  6.5 miles or so.

Fuel XC 3 Miles: 6.00
Weight: 0.00

A good interesting list, lots of fun. Lots to choose from.

Wow Jon that's an impressive race schedule. You'll win at least two:)

I'm disappointed in Crockett. He said your blog today would be more interesting than his. What he should have done is point me to your personal blog, which I'll go to next. Can't wait to see what you have in store for this year.

I see two things here on your blog...first you live in SC and next you want to win a race or two. I'm sure you've seen these small races in your neck of the woods. If not then let me send you the link. http://ultrasontrails.com/

I've only run one of Terri's races and can only comment on that race. It was really well organized, well stocked with food, but the trail could have been marked just a little bit better.

Side note: if a trail isn't marked to the level of a 6 year old I will get lost.

Deborah- I saw those races and they look very interesting. I usually don't run Sunday races, though, and all hers are on Sundays.
