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!

2nd of my 3 runs in 15 hours.  7 am, ran to Firehouse, then decided to follow Paul's lead and run the deer trail.  I ran up cliffside, along the deer trail to above fox hollow, then home through Providence.  Felt pretty tired and sluggish going up mountain road, but felt much better running the deer trail hills.  I lost one of my gloves, but drove up later and found it.

3rd run was at 12:30, meaning I did 3 runs (6 mile, 9 mi, 6 mi) in 14.5 hours. 

My 3rd run was from mile 21 to 18 and back along TOU course.  First 3 miles averaged 7:20 pace, 3 miles back was 6:40 pace, which I was pleased with supposing my mileage and that it was net uphill.  I actually felt quite a bit better in my 3rd run than my 2nd run.  I think I am in decent shape for the RDS (not great, but decent) and should be able to meet my 7:00/mile goal pace.  Supposing I only started running in February, I think I am doing ok.

Finished the day with 2 hours of ultimate frisbee (a little speedwork) and a 30 minute hike.  My legs are tired.
