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!

5 easy miles, 6:50-7:00 pace.  Felt tired and sluggish.  2 potty breaks.  I gotta change my diet.

In addition to the nap hours on the blog we should have a pit-stop counter. Maybe a potty board next to the mileage board :)

Ditch the pizza....

Now that would be a board that I would often top. Or at least give a few guys some competition for first place. I would say "winner", but I probably shouldn't view it that way.

In the next column, we can list "time wasted waiting for Jon to do his business"

From James on Wed, Mar 19, 2008 at 21:49:55

I would even be high on that list if we count it as a yearly count rather than a weekly!

From Jon on Wed, Mar 19, 2008 at 22:20:16

Cody, Cody, Cody- you should think of it as "time to recover and stretch to finish strong in the second half of the workout" rather than wasted time.

I will be in Logan on Saturday and Monday with the in-laws if you or any of the other Loganites would like to go for a run.
