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!

PM- Cody is injured, so I was on my own for my long run today.  I slept in so finally got around to my run around 3 pm.  Unlike most of my previous Sat afternoon runs, I actually was well hydrated and fed (though I could have done without the bean burritos last night).  Pretty mundane run, most at 7:30-7:45 pace.  Felt crappy till about mile 12, then started feeling incrementally better.  I felt good enough to run my last two half miles at 7:00 and 6:00 pace- and the 6 min pace felt easier than most of my slower miles.  Huh. 

Highest weekly mileage for the year.

Nice Run. I'm glad you started kicking it in gear and come out with a good feeling. Sometimes we never know how our long runs will turn out. That's the beast of marathon training.

I hope your family and you have a good Easter.

Saturday afternoon runs are always harder than Sat morning. Especially when you are solo. Lagoon? I wish.
