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!

Morning run, low teens temp but actually didn't feel to bad.  Ran to planet walk, met Cody there, did Young's Ward loop, plus a bit, then home.  13 miles in all, 1:32:13, which works out to about 7:05 pace.  Some miles in the middle were as fast at 6:45 pace.  Felt good. 

One of the topics Cody and I discussed was the shape we are in this year versus last year.  I am in a lot better shape than this time last year, plus a lot thinner (20-25 lbs).  Last Jan and Feb combined I estimated I did about 115 miles, with almost all of it in February (I wasn't on the blog till end of Feb) and did 184 miles in March.  I did 199.5 miles in Jan this year, and Feb should be 220-230, with 270 or so in March.  Last year I didn't hit 270 till July.  I will continue slowly building up mileage to avoid injury and am looking forward to a great yeat.

Awesome about the difference in mileage a good sign of things to come. Do I hear a sub-2:35 or sub-2:30 at Ogden?

Good job on the training. Yes, this will be a good year for you...especially with the new family addition. Looking forward to seeing you smoke Ogden this year.

I too have drastically increased my mileage and fitness from last year. In 07, I did 160 miles in Jan, this year 292 miles. I am just getting tired of the TM but at least I am getting in some OK speedwork.
