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- 16 miles in 2:04:11 (7:46 avg) on some great gravel trails around Denver with  my dad biking along.  I could really tell after about 10-12 miles that I have never gone this many miles before as my legs were rather fatigued.  New record high for weekly mileage and montly mileage (40+ more miles than ever before).  I haven't decided yet if I want to run 2-3 miles tonight in order to hit the 100 mile mark for the first time.  I'm pretty happy with how I feel, especially supposing I had only 5 miles on Tuesday.

Great week Jon. 2-3 miles are probably worth it. That is super impressive considering it was really done on about 5-day!!!

No. Legs were toast.
