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!

Most of the country would call our weather a light dusting of snow that isn't even sticking to the roads, maybe 1/4" snow total so far. In South Carolina, we call it a snow day with no school. Last week, the kids only attended school two days due to weather, and both were delayed start. I'm betting we have 2-3 more snow days this week. SMH.

PM- 10 miles on a snow day. Felt pretty sluggish and wasn't sure I'd make it past 4 miles. Rather than run my endless loops of the soccer fields, I headed out into distant neighborhoods so it wouldn't be possible to stop short of an hour. On this snow day, the roads were dry and there was basically no snow even on the grass. At least the kids didn't have to go to school ;)
