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- Brr, it's cold now.  50 deg today.  10 miles with Dan and Jim.  Legs were a bit sore and sluggish, but much better than I expected.   Signed up for the GE trail 6k this Saturday, though I don't expect to be fast at all.  

I have a bunch of Southwest airfare to spend for races next year.  Anything from March to June.  Suggestions?

Aren't you about due for another shot at Pocatello?

Hmm- that's not a bad idea. I'll keep it in mind. I tend to lean towards new races for me, but I never even finished Poky.

Come-on

Joe and I are both doing the 50 at Pokey next year. Want an epic battle?

Dale- that's probably the best one right now. Good idea.
