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!

AM- I had planned to do Richard's Hollow this morning, part of the Bear 100 course.  But, after minimal sleep this week, I was up till 1:30 last night trying to get my daughter to sleep.  When my alarm went off, I turned it off and slept till 8.  Then I did an easy 7 on PW.  About a dozen people with professional cameras on the trail, for some reason.  Now I watch the kids all day while Marci is in SLC.

Good to get some extra sleep. I don't know how you are able to get up so early and run.
