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!

AM- 6 miles, mostly on the Willow Park baseball fields.  Not bad weather, actually- ~30-35 deg, slight wind, no precipitation.  When I left for work 30 minutes later, there was a dang good snowstorm raging.  Welcome to May, everyone.

PM- Planned to run 10 miles in the mountains, but decided last minute to run around town with the kid.  Big mistake.  We bundled her up cause it was only 45 deg but she got real ornery.  Ran about 4 miles, then she got out to look at some ducks and really didn't want to get back in the stroller.  Did 3 more miles, then she got out to go down some slides for 10 minutes.  Again, she really didn't want to get back in the stroller.  I ended up cutting my run about 1 mile short due to excessive whining from the kid.  I don't think I'm going to take her again for a while.

How's the knee feeling Jon? I hope it's completely healed.

Feeling the same, Kory- I am hoping that faithful icing will help it eventually go away.

I am coming up to Logan for Katey's graduation tomorrow. Are you up for an 1 1/2 hour run starting at about 6 or so?
