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- no rain when we started. Then a sprinkle. Then a moderately hard rain, enough to soak the shoes in under a minute. Then it really started coming down, with puddles everywhere and streams across the roads. Not quite "red thunderstorm" hard, but only 1 step below.

8 miles or so.

Did I mention it rained?

To be honest, rainy and 75 deg is quite enjoyable. Just makes the clothes a bit heavy afterwards.

AM- longest run since Western. 10 miles even in 77 min or so.

It was 52 deg this morning. It felt freezing cold. Coldest morning by 10 deg since May or so.

AM 6

Today is one of those long days. I left home at 6:30 for a run, then had 9 hours of training at work, then 2 hours of catching up at work on the work I've been missing due to training. Now I'm heading to church for Mutual night, then a meeting after that. I'll probably get home between 9:30 to 10 pm, which means it's over a 15 hour day. At least it keeps me out of trouble, even if I don't see my family.

AM- 8

PM- ward campout. Whole family came, but Marci and I drove separate cars. This proved fortuitous as none of our kids got to bed before midnight, and then the 2 year old woke up screaming and could not be calmed. I drove home from 1:30-2:30 am with her. Hope Marci and the other 4 fare well in the morning. I'm not sure Marci knows how to take down the tent. And I'm very bummed I'm going to miss the huge breakfast, including bacon. But it's 3 am now and I've been sleep deprived all week. I think I'm going to bed now.

Lunch- went to the gym with 1 kid while the rest were still camping. 6 mile run. Felt good. This is the first week since June that I've run 6 days, and my highest mileage by 10 mpw.

AM- 9 miles. Decided mid-run to do my first sub-7:30 miles in months (aka what passes as speedwork these days). Bumped it up to just under 7 min pace for 2 miles, then added a third as I was feeling good. 9 miles total.

No run. Woke up very early to fly to Denver. My parents are leaving for an 18 month church mission to India next week so my sisters and I all surprised them by flying out for this weekend. The surprise was a success.

lunch 6.5. It's been overcast and rainy for a week. No one in SC saw the blood moon. I was lucky I saw it in sunny Denver.

Lunch- 9. Nothing really to report. Mariani made the BQ cutoff by 50 seconds- exciting for him. I'm looking forward to Conference this weekend, and we plan to potty train my 2 year old. And both my girls won their soccer games last week, the first time that has happened. I was in Denver so didn't see any of it, of course. Hope the games aren't rained out this weekend. Sept is normally the driest month and we've had over 5 inches of rain.
