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!

Ran the Grand Canyon R2R2R with Rob and Cody.  Full report is on my Green Shorts running page.  And for anyone who doesn't think this deserves a Race Report... well, go run it yourself and see if it isn't more worthy than any race you've ever done...

Can't wait to hear about it. Good luck with the move across the country...it will be good to have your family back together!

Any news on the offer?

Ugh!!! Nice time. That sounds awesome. I can't wait to finally do that . . . someday.

I am so glad we got to do this epic run. I have been dreaming about it for months now and all my dreams came true. It was everything I hoped for and then some. A run of a lifetime.

From Bryce on Sat, Oct 16, 2010 at 00:07:18 from

Nice report, sounded like a great run. So did you get a place near Paris Mtn?

From RAD on Sat, Oct 16, 2010 at 12:31:03 from

I'm with you on the 'worthy of a race report'! I HIKED Rim to Rim in one day, and yup...that was good for me! AND it took me longer to do just that than for you to run that and all the way back - simply in awe! Someday when I loose a bit more of my sanity, I would like to do this one...someday. Congrats on a HUGE epic race, I'll have to go to the green shorts blog and read more. CONGRATS!

Bryce- we won't be buying a house for several months yet, so don't know.

Incredible run. I loved the blog! Rob is so tough. I love running down there more than anyplace on earth. (but not that far)
