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!
Tried doing some xt on elliptical and bike. Even that hurt my foot. Pretty frustrated and kind of depressed. At this point, I just want to limp through Western (which isn't any sure thing) and then throw in the towel. I've been injured since August.

Sorry to hear about the injury...too young to throw in the towel. Hope you can figure it out and get healed up.

Hang in there Jon. I agree, you still have some great races ahead of you.
