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!

5 miles early this morning.  It was rather chilly out.

PM- 11 miles with the jogging stroller.  Windy and warm- almost 80 deg.  Aiming for 75+ miles this week but I really don't know how many I will get each day since daughter #2 should be arriving any day now- she is due June 11.

Adrenaline- 371

11 miles with a jogging buggy, wow, that is worth more than your 11 mile easy run. 100 commando points for the child being good for the run. Must be a future runner.

Very exciting!

11 miles with a stroller is impressive. Marci went way over with the last one, make sure you have daughter #2 before WBR !

Yeah, it was long today. Last year one day I did 16 or so one day, which took forever. I bribe the kid with small pieces of granola bar when she starts getting moody. As long as she isn't hungry or cold she does ok.

From Jon on Mon, Jun 09, 2008 at 23:47:04

James, I know- we have a wedding the day of WBR, too- Marci's sister and near-twin. So we really want the kid to come soon so she can go to that- we are hoping to induce this week.

Yeah for Allen baby #2!

From Jim on Tue, Jun 10, 2008 at 16:25:17

Very exciting about expecting the new baby. I have a daughter that was born on 6/11.
