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!
Food sickness day number 2. Effects are slowly wearing off and I have been able to eat and drink a bit, unlike yesterday at this time. No running, though.

there's not much worse feeling than food poisoning. I had it a week and a half ago, and luckily it only lasted 12 hours and I got whatever it was out. I feel your pain.

Bummer Jon ... hope that clears your system soon! Here is a race you may want to put on your radar, if not this year, in the future. I have not run it, as I just heard about it last year after reg was full ... but I read some cool race reports on it & it is supposed to be beautiful. Anyway, not too far from you ... although it is only a 1/2. It is put on by Christian Runners ... in conjunction with a weekend retreat which sounds pretty cool.
