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!

Ran the beautiful Chuckanut 50 k. Had low expectations and just wanted to enjoy myself. Mission accomplished. Nice course, wet and rainy, nice people, fun weekend with David Nelson and many other runners. Finished 20th overall. Technically my second fastest 50k race ever, somehow. More later.

Update 2 weeks later- finally did a Race Report compilation, including for this race. It's all on my Greenshortsrunning blog.

Nice job Jon. And belated congrats on the PI sponsorship!

Fast times at the Chuckanut. Congrats on the PR and results under less than ideal conditions. Looking forward to the details.

From Kendall on Sun, Mar 17, 2013 at 19:35:54 from 208.54.4.169

...okay, not a PR. Sick fast anyway. PI, PR, so much to keep track of.

From David Nelson on Mon, Mar 18, 2013 at 23:31:41 from 24.16.181.53

Well said, and good race. Don't forget to mention the soup on the full report.

Sounds like the way every weekend should be spent.
