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!

PM- Evening tinman tempo.  I ran to pick up Cody, then we ran to Paul's.  We headed towards the canal and the canyon.  Once we hit 4 miles (for me), we picked up the pace to ~6:20/mile.  Cody and Paul turned around 1.6 miles into the workout while I took a bathroom break.  Then I continued up the canyon by myself- I was working pretty hard, especially once I hit the trail.  I probably pushed it a bit too much- 19:40 for ~3 miles.  Turned around and ran the 3 miles back in ~19:00.  I was working very hard- breathing hard and sweating A TON (a lot more than usual, for some reason).  Not sure why it seemed so hard.  I was dead by the end of the workout.  I limped 4 miles home at about 7:45 pace.  80 deg and humid (for Logan) when I finished at 9 pm.  Tired, tired.  Sleep now.  Ok workout, nonetheless, and very nice to run with Paul and Cody again.

14 miles, 1:38:54.

768- 90

High Humidity today (especially for Logan)! I was soaked when I got home.

Looks like a solid run today Jon. Keep it up.
