Personal:

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!

12 miles, from my house to the canal to first dam.  Felt a bit tired from yesterday.  Started at 7:45 pace, finished at 7:10 pace.

6.5 easy miles with Paul and James around south Logan.  First time I had run with those two together.  Looking forward to my vacation, especially after the hectic day at work today.

http://www.cnn.com/2007/TECH/space/05/02/derailment.shuttle/index.html That is my rocket that derailed, plus I know the people who got hurt.  Not a fun experience.  My group is in charge of the rail cars, too.

4 easy miles at 7:30 pace.  I leave tomorrow on my 2 week vacation but I will try to report on my runs when I get back.  I hope to be ~60+ miles each week, though I think my long runs won't be as long.

Ran 20 miles with James, from mile 1.5 on TOU to my house.  Good run, nice weather, but we somehow ran right by our second water stop (gatorade on the side of the road).  All miles were between 6:50 to 7:12 pace, with a 7:06 average.  Not bad for the first 20 miler of the year.  Time 2:22

Leaving on vacation now.  Thanks for the run today, James, and good luck to all at Ogden marathon.

14 miles, from my house to the canal and up to just below 2nd dam.  Out at 7:30-7:45 pace,  back at 7:30-7:15 pace, with a final mile of 6:53.  I felt like absolute crap the first 3-4 miles- stomach cramps, wanted to puke, bad headache.  Not at all how I normally feel.  I really thought of turning around at 4 miles but decided to keep going.  Felt better on the way back, at least a bit.  Still have the headache. 1:43:53 total time.

I will try to catch up my blog for the past 2 weeks from my vacation.  I did pretty good running the first week (including some gorgeous runs and very hard runs) around Zions and Bryce.  One run was 8 miles with 2300 feet ascent, 2300 descent.  One run had 850 feet gain in the first mile.  Fun!  I tweaked my knee pretty bad backpacking in the Grand Canyon the second week and didn't run again due to concern for it.  It twinged my whole run today.

8 miles on canyon river trail.  Easy.  Nice weather, and the leaves have come out so everything is green.

18 miles.  From my house to canal up the canyon to 3rd dam- just over 10 miles in about 1:15.  Then Paul, Dan, Cody, and James picked me up and we drove to Temple fork, where we ran about 7.5 miles.  Pretty slow on the way up, faster down.  I had never done that trail before- it's pretty nice.  Finished off with 2 hours of ultimate frisbee.

12 miles- up Green canyon, then up the Preston Valley single track to above the wind caves.  I hadn't done this trail in 2-3 years- I had forgotten how steady the climb is, plus how technical the trail is.  Much harder than Jardine Juniper, for instance.  Good hill run, though.

Finished with 1.5 hours of frisbee.

8 easy miles with the baby stroller, back and forth along the planet walk.  This run was previously known as the river trail, golf course trail, paved river trail, etc.  From henceforth, I dub thee "Planet Walk"- anyone who has run it recently should know why.

Oh yeah, I ran into Paul and helped an old lady look for her hat.  It was an exciting run.

I was supposed to do 14 or so today, but was supposed to help a friend move out of his house so only had time for 7.  That's ok, though, because my quads were very sore from Tuesday's run (my first hard downhill of the year) so I was going pretty slow.  Need more downhills to get my legs used to it.
