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!

Definitely excited for UROC in 6 weeks.  They continue to add more elite runners- the most recent is Ian Sharman.  Looks like it will be a fun race.  They even put a page with all 26 of the elite runners (so far) on it, including me.  Link here.  If anyone else is interested, I encourage you to throw your name in the pot.

PM- picked up Barry right after work and drove straight to the wonderfully-fandibulous Dupont State Forest trails, where we spent the next 2 hrs 54 min hours sweating our way along 18 miles of beautifully-runnable singletrack with 2600 ft gain.  Saw 2 people the whole time.  What a great run.  Even had to do the last 45 min in the dark.  The downside is I didn't get home until 11 pm, so I never saw my daughters all day.  Last time I was at Dupont, I ran 20 miles in 2:47.  Today, 18 miles in 2:54.  The difference?  It was about 40-50 deg warmer today.  If you don't think that matters, let me show you my backpack from today, absolutely soaked through with my sweat.

95 miles Mon-Fri this week.  Sounds like a good training week to me.

That's a pretty cool website. It makes you look all famous and everything. :)

Nice website. I've actually heard of about everyone. Scott Gall went to the college in my home town (Wabash College), and he was quite the stud when I was in high school. I ran with his former teammate when I was back in Indiana, and we were talking about him...

Have fun out there with everyone.
