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!

PM- Work has been super stressful with long hours (yeah, yeah, rub it in, Cody), so missed the lunch run.  Snuck in 4 miles after work before heading home, primarily to blow some steam.  I have no idea how I am going to run high mileage with this job.  And achilles is very worrisome.  Still.

But at least you have a job! Hang in there, every job has its ups and downs.

Jeff right you could be up all night doing security patches that I have to do at times. We all have ups-and-downs.

Your in a new environment and you will adjust.

I know, thanks guys. Just venting a bit- you know how it goes.

Hey Jon- I heard Greenville is a great town. Did you move from UT? Aren't the fall colors spectacular?

From Jon on Sun, Oct 24, 2010 at 14:16:24 from

Christi- yes, we just moved here from UT. Haven't seen the colors yet- still a few weeks early. But there are hints of great things to come.
