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- I've heard of New Year Resolutions, but is there some type of Mid-Year Resolutions?  I ask because I normally don't see anyone during my morning run, but saw NINE runners in a 2 mile stretch on Planet Walk this morning.  9 runners, all before 6 am.  Plus I saw 2 more other places, plus a group of 5 middle-school age kids setting off fireworks- again, before 6 am!?!  It was the strangest morning- every 30 seconds, we would see another runner coming towards us.  Anywho, ran 5.5 miles with Paul.  I'm tired- need more sleep.  Good thing my holiday starts tomorrow.

Thanks, Paul, and you, as well.

Jon, I dropped the book off at your house today. Have a fun break and relax and do some reading! I will keep Paul on pace at the freedom run to be sure he wins. Just hope he can keep up with me.
