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- 10. One of these days I should start tapering for the trail marathon I have on Saturday.
PM- 8 with Aaron.
63.5 miles in the past 3 days, and 123.5 in the past 6. I'm pretty sure both are records for me.
Hoka Bondi B Miles: 8.00
Test Shoe 3 Miles: 10.00

20 miles a day becomes pretty routine after about a year of it :-)

Well after doing 100's, a marathon becomes kind of the equivalent of a 5K, right?...don't really taper for those, other than run easy the day before.

Yep, 18 miles isn't much of a taper.
By the way Jon, over on my Deseret News race report you'll see that Jake took another one of his gratuitous slams at ultra runners.

You are such a trouble-maker, Rob.
Jon - you'll like this... it obviously can't happen this year (b/c we are going to run out of vacation days)... but Andrea wants to do the Trans-Rockies stage race next year. We're going to try and get Saucony to sponsor a team (the entry fees are outrageous).
From Jon on Thu, Jul 26, 2012 at 19:36:08 from 188.8.131.52
Exactly right, Paul- one day easy, that's it.
Rob- thanks for the heads up. Been too busy to comment on most of the Des News reports, though I did read a few of the marathons and read about the short "10k".
Jake- Never heard anything but rave reviews of Trans-Rockies.
