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!

Here is some interesting info.  If you want to know who a candidate will favor if elected, just look at what companies contribute to them (well, the employees).  For Romney: his top contributors are Wall Street, banks, investment firms, etc.  And their contributions are huge $$$$  For Ron Paul: his top contributors are military members.  It looks like our military members like Paul's ideas of bringing the troops home and not fighting in costly, dangerous wars overseas.  So, Romney = more bailouts and favoritism towards banks/Wall Street.  Ron Paul = bring troops home out of harms way, which they support.

AM- 10

PM- 10.5 with Justin on a chilly night at PM.  Tired and slow- 97 miles in my last 5 days of running, which is obviously a lot.  Trails are always nice.  But definitely slower when it is dark.  Hardly anyone out- maybe saw 6 people the whole time. 1200 ft climb, 1:56.

They're good so far, if pricey. Only worn them twice, though. First long run in them planned for this Sat, so ask me then.
