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!

9 easy miles with the jogging stoller, around Blackhawk park and multiple loops on planet walk.  Had to keep stopping to get the gnats out of my eyes- annoying little things.  Better than mosquitos, though.

I just wondered, what is this 'planet walk' thing? And that sucks about the gnats. But gnats in the eyes are a little less nasty than gnats in the mouth. And nose. Eew.

Thanks for the support, I'll do my best next week and we'll see what happens!

Marci has run a marathon! Hello! She needs to be blogging! Us wives need to take over the blog! Tell her we are counting her in for the Moab half.

Ditto, Marci. But don't worry, we will all understand if you wait to start blogging until you've finished "New Moon". Shouldn't take long, anyway. I stayed up all night and read it. For some reason Sasha did not approve of that. He he!

Yes, you must start blogging and I hope hope hope you run the half with us! If not the half, there is also a 5 miler that morning. Some people will probably do that one. The important thing is that we are all in the same city for at least 24 hours so we can tell funny stories about our husbands. (He he.)

Oh, and hi Jon. 9 miles with the jogging stroller is A LOT--counts as a 14 miler in my book.
