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- First time my legs haven't felt sluggish all week, so I did a little workout.  3 miles warmup, 7 miles MP in 42:30 or so, then 1 cooldown.

Lunch- an hour plus BUBW

Ultrarunning magazine just came out with the 2012 Year In Review.  I heard I was in it, so asked Crockett to email me a page (thanks, Davy).  Sure enough, there I was on the Top 100-mile times.  Number 22 in the country.  Pretty cool.  I still think I have a 14:30 in me, although I don't think I'll ever run a fast 100 again.

Great running this week!

I was up late last night reading through my issue, too. I didn't know you were a famous ultra person right here in our midst. Congratulations!
