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!

Lunch- ez 6 win the guys

PM- Paris mtn with just Jim. Hot and humid. I'd almost say it's summer. Jim hit his head on a branch and had blood streaming down his face for a while. I took a fall near the end and dirtied myself up. I'd say it's the dirtiest I've ever gotten from a fall, partly cause it was on soft dirt and I was soaked with sweat. Both knees, both hands, my right arm, and somehow my entire back from shoulder to mid-butt (guess it pulled my shorts down some). We passed by a campground a mile later so I tried to wash off in the bathroom but it was futile, till I realized there was a shower. I hopped right in and cleaned up quite a bit, then finished the run. I was already soaking wet, but that was definitely my first mid-run shower. 12 miles and 1400 ft climbing in 1:55.

That "trail" by my house is not what I expected. Very short. However, I heard there are some good ones within a 20 minute drive. I'll have to check them out. I think this is a campground there so I'll look for showers to keep cool. We've actually had it relatively easy compared to the rest of the country.

I like the mid-run shower idea. Love it actually.
