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!

Had a great time running the very muddy Foothills Drifter 6k trail race this morning- report on my Green Shorts running blog.  Finish the week with a fun race, some good mileage, and feeling strong to continue progressing in the coming months.  I feel like I'm starting to get in shape.

Very cool Jon and it sounds pretty fun also. I'm playing with the idea now of some trail racing after this season.

Great job Jon.

Always fun to pick up a W.
