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!

Met Cody at my house (we figured it was the first time just the two of us had run together).  Ran to planet walk and then looped around to the Blackhawk park.  I wanted to do 5x1200 meter repeats, but the loop we did ended up being 0.92 miles (1472 meters) so we only did 4.  It was my very first speed workout of the year, so I was hoping for 5:30-5:40 pace.  I did them in 5:06, 5:07, 5:08, and 5:06, with 2.5 minutes recovery.  Very consistent, but I would have liked to get faster with each one.  Cody kicked my butt on the last 2 and beat me by 4 seconds on the last one.  My legs felt ok, my lungs were slowing me down.  But it was very nice to have someone to do speed work with rather than hammering them out alone.  Ran home via planet walk.  10.25 miles (it's official- from Cody's GPS) in about 1:15.

Followed the run with almost 2 great hours of frisbee.  I ran even more than usual- it was a great game.  You all should join me sometime- very fun, good cross training and speed work.  I'll count it for 2.25 crosstraining miles, given how hard I was working.

Elite- about 110 miles.

If you think Cody kicked your butt you should do some speed work with Paul! Talk about being left in the dust!
