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!

Ran to Paul's house, ran 3 miles with him, then ran a bunch more by myself.  It is so nice that it is light outside.  ~14 miles, 1:45:50.  Don't know my pace for most of it, but mile 13 was 7:00 and mile 14 was 6:30.

Nice run. You forgot to put your miles in your mileage portion...

From Jon on Wed, Mar 12, 2008 at 22:59:29

Good catch.

From Mike Warren on Wed, Mar 12, 2008 at 23:25:11

Hi, I'm Josse.

From Adam RW on Thu, Mar 13, 2008 at 12:26:28

Jon, I'm with you on the St. George moving the competition, I think you should go and tear it up with the the top Dogs heading east. First I was bummed when Sasha initially boycotted SLC but when I thought about it I got excited maybe I have a chance to finish top 5 in a fairly large marathon. Now however, with Dave, Sasha, and the obligate 2 "elites" It is going to be a tough run...

sad you couldn't make it to moab...

What are your fake goals for 2008?

From Jon on Thu, Mar 13, 2008 at 15:12:30

I had fake goals at first (such as exercise 8 days/week) to see if anyone would notice. I removed them when I put my real goals.

From josse on Thu, Mar 13, 2008 at 15:19:36

I noticed and it made me laugh! I love the Steeplechases I have done Wasahth and Jupiter.

From Jon on Thu, Mar 13, 2008 at 15:36:53

I have run up to the top of Wahsatch a few weeks before the race. Tough course. How does Jupiter compare to it? Did you enjoy them?

From josse on Thu, Mar 13, 2008 at 15:39:12

They are both though but I love trail running, I just wish I would stop turning my ankles on them. I think Wahsatch is tougher. I did enjoy both of them.

From Jon on Thu, Mar 13, 2008 at 15:43:23

Is Jupiter a lot faster/shorter than Wahsatch?

From josse on Thu, Mar 13, 2008 at 17:20:24

yes both shorter and faster, and it doesn't have the crags up top that slow you down, well at least they slowed me down because I am afraid of heights. Thank goodness I had some nice guys that helped me threw this section. I beleive W is 18 and J is 16.
