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!

Striders 30k today. However, due to concerns of my achilles, there was no way I was going to race today. Plus, I'm not in a money position, the weather isn't great (how come the weather is great mid-week and crappy for the races?), and I didn't want to spend 7-8 hours away from home. So, I slept in a bit and ran with Cody at 7 am. We ran to the canal and up the Logan river trail to the start of the single track- 8 miles exactly each way. Up in 56:28 (7:03 pace- pretty fast for the up). We ran the 2 miles down the trail fast into a small headwind- 6:05 and 5:50, then relaxed the rest of the way home. 1:50:38 for the run (6:54 pace), 54:10 return (6:46 pace). Felt pretty good- achilles was tight the whole way, but not painful. We'll see how it is tomorrow. Cody's foot started hurting by the end. It was 40 deg and pretty nice the whole run- it started raining hard just as we got home, and quickly turned to a hard snow. Good timing.

I was wondering where you were. I went all the way to Ogden to cheer you on, but couldn't find you. I also had this huge bag of bagels with me.

No. Evening run.
