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!

I will be in Logan on the 19th too. You better still be running!

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. The 6K race was fun. Looking forward to getting you back in town and keeping up with your training again. It is good to take some easy time during the winter.

I had seen the link on Paul's site about Devine. It is a bummer that that stuff has gone on. From what I can tell '07 has been ok so far and I'm hoping there won't be a hitch in '08. Believe me, Ogden is very tempting as it seems many of the bloggers are going to run that race. However, as we mentioned earlier the training on the course has been good benefit. So far the first half of the SLC course seems like a good chanllenge. I still haven't run the back half yet but I think if I can get a 2:35 on this course I should have no problem for a low or even sub 2:30 at St. George the following year...

Time to update the blog! Are you back yet?

From James on Mon, Nov 26, 2007 at 15:58:24

Glad your back, let's hook up sometime.

Did you get my e-mail about your treadmill? I wasn't sure it went through. I was going to have to pass, anyway. It's a good deal, but a lot of driving to UT and I have 2 toddlers/infants. Thanks, though!

The parents are still 'discussing.' I'm working on getting a straight answer out of one or the other ASAP. Go ahead and put it in the classifieds in the meantime, though - they might 'discuss' forever. Parents... tsk tsk.
