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- ran Oil Creek/Ceasar's Head/Jones gap loop with Justin.  First 2 hours had a lot of technical, non-running terrain, though we saw the fairly impressive Raven Cliff Falls.


Then another 2 hrs trail running, plus some road to get us back.  Justin's watch said 5500 ft climbing last winter, but the leaves somehow reduced the amount of climbing this time to 5100 ft.  Huh- more leaves on trees = smaller mountains.  Then again, I accidentally stopped my garmin for 30 min and it still said 7300 ft climb... so maybe more leaves = bigger mountains.

I felt appropriately tired and sluggish for the weekly mileage but got it done.  80 deg and sticky humid by the end.  Just over 4.5 hrs and 22 miles.  Left home at 6 am, home at 1:15 pm- such is the life of an ultrarunner in SC.

Finished the shoe test today- I literally took the wet, muddy, sweaty shoes off in the UPS Store parking lot and closed them in the box for the trip back to the company.  Gotta feel real bad for the poor sap who opens that box after a few days of fermenting. 

Just put up a new greenshortsrunning blog post, and made a (very short) race report from PM12k.
