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- 8.5 easy on the golf course.  Had a near-incident with a skunk.  I've always wondered how I would react if I got sprayed.

PM- 6.5 easy with the wife and kids, circling around Logan.  Nice evening weather for a run.

Hmmm, us ladies were chatting with Walter about his skunk incidents this morning. He's had plenty. Good thing you didn't get sprayed, that would have "stunk!" Ha, ha.

You would of been alright. Aren't you trained for that, with your stinking hotel room.

weird... you were on the "lone faithful list".. must be a glitch or something. but I thought I better fix that. And BTW, I read Paul's comment on your post about where to take the right trail to Bierdnea before I posted the same on Cody's entry about getting lost, I was just playing with you guys. But I also wonder... does anyone really know how to spell "birdneua" correctly ????
