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- 10 xt

PM- 13 miles at Paris Mtn with Barry, normal loop plus fire tower.  Only 75 deg, which was wonderful, plus my legs were fresh from only 1 run this week.  2000 ft climbing.  No walking the uphills- and my foot didn't even hurt.

No baby yet.  Marci is due on Friday, but it looks like we'll keep with tradition of coming late.  I do have a 2 mile race Fri night, so hopefully they don't overlap! 

Also, I registered for Umstead 100 today, which is next March.  Actually, I didn't get in the regular registration due to a computer glitch (race filled up in ~10 minutes!!!), but then saw they have a competitive entry procedure, so got accepted that way.  Should be fun- it's a well run, very fast 100 miler (oxymoron?) only 4 hrs from my house.  I'll be aiming for a smoking fast time, knock on wood.  Very excited.

Boy. Supposedly. Quite the surprise otherwise.
