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!

Now I am heading to work at ATK for the last time ever.  After, I am driving staight to Colorado for the Grand Mesa 50 mile on Saturday, then driving from Colorado straight to SLC on Sunday morning to fly to South Carolina for a 4 day house hunting trip.  I'll return home Wed night.  So don't count on seeing my race report until Wed night or Thursday sometime.

So I guess I won't spend all Saturday evening hitting "refresh"...

Best of luck in all endeavors this weekend and next week.

Are you wearing your green shorts to work today?

Busy weekend. Kill it at the Grand Mesa. You should do really well. And better luck finding a house.

I hope the race went well (looking forward to the report). Good luck in the house hunt and have safe flights...
