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 hoped to get a good 16 mile run in today, but was sorely mistaken.  Get it- sore-ly?  Ok, sorry, bad joke.

I hoped I could get a 12 mile run in but was very, very sore still so figured I would see what happened.  I looped around the island a bit, then ended up on the canal and ran it back and forth twice.  My pace was 8:00-8:15/mile, and I was sore.  I could feel the soreness in my legs with each step.  Finally, after 8 miles, I decided to try and do the last 4 miles a bit quicker (though I was happy just to be able to run all 12 miles).  I hoped to at least be sub-8:00, but I must have felt a bit better than I thought.  I did the last 4 miles in 29:33, 7:22 average.  Good run supposing how sore I was, and a good start to 70 miles this week (hopefully).

You were doing alot better than I was. I started down 10th North from my house and about turned around and went home after a block. That little bit of downhill about did me in!

I have your little first aid kit. I am sending the batons up to the Des News stuff with Steve O, so I can send this kit up as well and it can get to you somehow.

Hey Jon

You asked when I ran against Montrose. I went to high school at Moffat County High School in Craig, CO, that is where I grew up and really enjoyed living there. In fact I moved back there right after college and taught school and coached for 4 years, before moving here to St. George.
