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!

I wanted to start doing some speed work again.  I decided to do a 4 mile tempo run- weather was 70 deg and sunny.  Since I am currently the only operational member of the Logan FRB, I did my workout solo.  Did Young Ward loop.  Ran 2.8 miles warm up at 7 min pace, then started my tempo.  I wanted to be at or below 6:00 pace.  First mile was 6:00 dead on, mile 2 and 3 were both 5:59, last mile was 6:03.  By the end I could definitely feel that I had done a marathon 10 days earlier, but was overall happy with the workout.  4.2 miles home at 6:55 pace, giving a total workout of 11 miles in 1:12:49 (6:37 avg).  Easy day tomorrow. 

Marci was having pretty severe labor pains last night.  Bubba Gump is due in 2 weeks, which means she could appear any day.  I'm looking forward to that, partly since I will take a whole week off work and can spend it with my family and running!

Do you have a name picked out for the baby? What about Jethro or Leroy?

From James on Wed, May 28, 2008 at 00:20:22

I was thinking of Earl or Sherman

The best part is that the baby is a girl! I'm sticking with Bubba Gump for now.
