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 like what you are doing on the other blog. Some good stuff up there. I'll have to check in more often. So now that you have the road bug again any hopes for a marathon this year? :)...

Road marathon? Doubtful. Maybe a trail marathon. The local road marathon in Greenville is near Halloween... and I'm planning to do a 100 miler Oct 7 and a 50 miler Nov 5, so another race just doesn't fit.

Nice 5k time for an off the couch race!! (so to speak, i guess 184 miles for the month so far isnt exactly couch potato) Impressive on the no speed work and just jumping back in.

Pretty speedy for a trail dude. Good job Jon.

Nice job. You should count that as a PR of some sort. Like "post trail transformation 5K PR"

15th place with that time? Sounds like you have some good runners back there to hook up with! Keep up the great work green machine!
