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 with Cody today.  I wanted trails, he wanted road.  He won.  We did Providence Hills loop with fartleks- 5 repeats of 3 min fast, 2 min easy.  I got killed- I think I stayed with Cody for 1 of the repeats, but fell behind on the rest, sometimes as much as 10-15 seconds.  Just felt tired and still feeling my cold.  Cody and I switched today- he whupped me, and I turned into the big whiner.  Rather cold out, too- my hands were painfully cold by the end.  10 miles, 1:10:35, 7:03 avg.  I'll be very glad when this week is over, my cold is gone, and I have moved into my new house (supposed to close last Tuesday, now hoping to close Fri or Monday, since I won't have a place to live as of Monday).

Hope you get feeling better soon. I think there is a curse on the bloggers. Every other guy down here in STG is down with something. Congrats on the new house, although that can be a stressful time with the move and all. We've been kind of looking for a bigger house which will be fun and nice... but moving all our stuff (again) will just suck.

Sounds like youve got alot on your platter! Im glad I ran during my cold. its good to see im not the only crazy one out there. It was cold today! Dont give your cold to your family or it will recycle. See ya!

Yeah- it's nice once you get moved in, but the whole buying, selling, and moving sucks. And being sick stinks, too. But I didn't get it too bad- just a cold. However, maybe it's just me, but it seems like colds seem to hang around forever.
