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'll see you in the morning. Do you think there will be much snow up there this year?

Keep the streak alive! Good luck tomorrow!

Twinkie- yes, lots of snow. I would guess the whole 6 mile round trip to the top from Aid 2/3. And more. I hear more than last year. But it makes for a fun descent.

Have fun playing in the snow! Good luck and go get 'em.
