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!

Cody and James came to my house and we drove to TOU start and ran to my house, 21.6 miles or so.  We ran all the miles between about 6:45-7:15 pace, with most within a few seconds of 7:00 pace.  Finished up a bit faster, with our last .6 at 5:43 pace (or something like that).  Average worked out to 6:51/mile pace.  Felt pretty good, though I was thirsty and my legs were defintely tired by the end.

Followed workout immediately with over 2 hours of good ultimate frisbee.  Cody's watch said he moved over 5 miles during the game.  I usually figure it is equivalent to about a mile per 45 min to 1 hour.  I'll call it 2.5 miles today.

This is the second most mileage I have ever done in a week, I believe.  Lots of mileage.  At least for now, I am top of the blog mileage board.  Some of the guys haven't run yet today, though, so I don't think I'll be there for long.  Maybe I'll have to do another 10,000 mile day.

Thanks for the invite. I am tiling a house and it needs to get done so I wasn't able to come up and run with you guys. I am thinking next Saturday might work for me if you guys want to run again. Let me know if you guys are up for it.

It was a good run today, probably the best I've felt in a long run this year. Maybe I can get to frisbee next week. Good job on the miles, I've never run that many before!
