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!

Lunch- 9.  We were stinky.

PM- PM with Barry, Justin, and (for the first time ever) Aaron.  12.5 miles with 1800 ft climbing.  Justin took us out of the park and up the roads to the true summit of Paris Mtn.  My first time up there.  Good climb.

No showers on the posh GE campus for after your lunchtime runs?

No, we were stinky DURING the run. Generating stink on the go, if you know what I mean. There are definitely showers in the nice gym at work- I wouldn't run at lunch in the summer if there weren't!
