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- 17.5 miles, most with Jeff and Lynette around Idaho Falls greenbelt.  Nice weather, decent pace, nice scenery, lots of good conversation.  Great way to start out a holiday.  And we started early enough that I got home before anyone was awake (admittedly, my in-laws are all night owls and like to sleep in), which means no one even knew I was gone.  Thanks for letting me join you for the good runs and discussion, Jeff and Lynette.

PM- Less than 5 hours after getting home from the first run, Marci and I did a 1 PM run.  Ran to Community Park together, then I did 3.5 miles while she did about 2, then home.  5.5 miles.

Great running with you too Jon! Once again a fun time talking during our run, covering lots of topics.

Have a safe trip home later today! See you again on the 4th of July!

I love the "sneaking" back into the house after a run. It makes the rest of the day seem so much more complete.

Hey, I see that you know your way around IF. Ya 2 to 3 days a week I have to be to work at 4:00am so with a graduating senior and a middle school child and a elementary student, life gets crazy. I coach a little league team so I am looking forward to the end of the season so things are so hectic.
