Personal:

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!

AM- early morning run on the FHT with Merle. Snow/ice off-and-on during the run, never deeper than an inch. I've had a bit of a cold and have only slept maybe 15 hrs total the past 3 days, so I was pretty worn down. We ran towards the bench and Merle pulled away right from the start. I just ran easy till I saw him coming back, 11.5 miles and 2:10 into the run. Merle was surprised I turned around 1/2 mile before the bench, but I didn't really care. The way back was pathetically slow, a good "tired, bonking, run/walk on dead legs" kind of run. These are no fun during the run, but I've found they help in races. Even added a few detours on the way back. Finished 24 miles in just under 4:40, with 4500 ft climbing (had I gone to the bench, I'd be well over an hour slower than my fastest bench run, one year ago exactly). This is my highest mileage training week since August, so that's good. Painful, yet good run.

Last run with these shoes- I've had them for years and years, at least 3 or 4 years. They are worn out and not feeling too good on my feet anymore. They had a great life, though, including 7 hours at the Barkley and 60 miles at the Bear 100.

Have I mentioned the Broncos are in the Super Bowl tomorrow?
