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!

Took the day off work, so I got a morning run.  Wow, that was NICE!  So nice not to run in 90+ degree weather!  I really wish I could do that every day- I know my training would be better/faster if I wasn't always fighting the heat.  Morning run was from my house along TOU course to the finish line, then back, plus a bit more.  Started at 8:00 pace, steadily and continuously picked up the pace with the last mile under 7:00 pace.  9.5 miles.

I spent most of the day outside watching my daughter while my wife played in a volleyball tournament with her sister.  They won it, never losing a match.  I didn't drink or eat much, so figured I would be a bit tired for my afternoon run.

Afternoon run started at Green canyon parking lot, ran about 2.5 miles up the canyon.  In the RAIN.  Yep, it was raining for the first time in almost 2 months.  It was glorious and cool and refreshing.  Sounds like a Sprite commercial.  Turned around, ran down to Bonneville Shoreline trail, ran to first dam, then up to USU campus, winding my way around a bit, finishing at the quad.  Finished with an hour of good frisbee.  Very tired.  11 miles.

35 miles in 25 hours.  More miles already tha ALL of last week.
