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 don't think I would befriend a skunk, but you to right ahead and do it.

Slow and easy are good miles in the AM. Keep up the good mileage.

I will get back with you this weekend or early next week about WBR, is that OK? I need to talk with James about what our team plans are looking like as well. I haven't had much of a chance to think about WBR, so I need to get on top of it.

That sounds fine, Jeff. I would like to have things hammered out by the 20th or so, at the latest. One other thought- are you and Kory driving down together? If so, we need to talk to him, too.

I am wating to hear back from Kory. Looks like I am in the first van right now (runner 2 pending a dropped runner that hasn't been incorporated yet). I am kind leaning towards staying for the finish, but would prefer to drive back with someone even if that means leaving early. Still torn but we can talk more.

From Jon on Mon, Jun 09, 2008 at 15:29:44

Let me know- if we have to talk to James to make sure you stay in van 1, I'm sure he can accomodate that. And, if it makes a difference in your decision, I am really leaning towards leaving early even if I drive by myself, just so I can make the luncheon. If you don't want to leave early, hopefully you and Kory could carpool. And I would need lots of red bull for my solo drive.
