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!

Today is St George marathon and StumpJump 50k, both races I've done and enjoyed. I may be retired from racing but I still am excited for my racing friends and follow along. Given the rain outside today, it seems fitting I did both races in bad weather years, and that SJ is expecting lots of rain today. Run strong, friends, and enjoy.

I actually appear in the video 3 times. Can anyone figure out where? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhEWT4qp-4M

Speaking of bad weather, it's currently 53 deg, pouring buckets, and 20 mph winds. I think I'll go for a nice run in a minute.

Ran 8 miles. Felt good, probably around 7 min pace. The good news about running in the rain is, once you are wet, you can't get any wetter.

if that was you in your signature green shorts, i saw you at the start line and the bridge crossing. i couldn't find the third one but my guess is you were the one playing with lava.

that looks like a really cool race -- beautiful area.

Yes, that was me, Allie. Good job. The other one is I won the race (got lucky) was they were handing the trophy to me at the end of the video. All you can see is my hands and mid-section, though, so kind of a trick question.
