Personal:

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!

Lunch- tried running with the guys, lasted 1.5 miles. Ran 4 total on a hot day (high today was mid-90's) in about 35 min. I hope to run 4-5 days this week, maybe with a day or two of some ultimate thrown in. I'm not sure if it's the extra 8 lbs I'm packing around, but this is more out of shape than usual for just a month off.

Lunch- ran with Dave Kadji and Russel Beard for the first time ever. Good for the pace I'm moving these days. No one got struck by the nearby lightning and it only rained a little.

AM- 5.5 with Dave and Russell. People generally don't really believe that I'm retired from racing. And if they do believe me, they don't really know how to react or what to say. I'm not sure they know they can talk to me about things other than running.

No running. But I was gone for 14 hours to take my 2 oldest girls rafting. Even though it was overcast and rainy, we had a grand old time. Kinley loved the rapids (tornado water, as she called it). Aspen loved the smooth parts. We even had 2 adults get tossed from our boat.

AM- ran 8 miles in just over 60 min. First 8 mile run since Western. Felt good, much less tired and sluggish. Knee is not happy, though- swollen, sensitive. I'm not sure it will ever get better.

Lunch. Very humid, warm day. I ran with Jim and Aaron, about 8.5 miles. Felt ok, but was struggling by the end, as much due to humidity as anything. To quote Allie, 74DP.

Lunch just Dave and I. Moved along fairly well, his GPS said we averaged 7:22 for the run. It was super humid again. I'm ready for cooler fall temps.

Lunch- some running, then ultimate frisbee. The summer heat is starting to break the past few days. Lows at night are finally dipping below 70 deg, high's are in the upper 80's. Much nicer. Weather is usually quite pleasant through Thanksgiving or later.
