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!

In Atlanta for work, found some trails near the hotel. 5 or so slow but nice miles in 45 min.

I've now put on about 8 or more pounds since September. I got a skinfold test at the gym today. All my previous body fat measurements were 6.5-8.1%. I was 11.7% today. Quite the increase.

Lunch- 8 miles with the guys. It was very cold- mid 30's and windy. First time I've worn long sleeve shirt since last spring. Brr. Seriously, it was below 40- soo cold! I thought I was going to die or worse. Or at least be a human popsicle. My snot rockets were frozen solid before they hit the ground. I felt my skin freezing with 5 seconds, my eyelids kept freezing shut when I blinked, and I could feel frostbite forming on my toes. My fingers were cold for at least 3 hours after, and that includes during the 15 minute hot shower. Although, my knee didn't hurt during the run, so either the cold helped or it was numb. I'll take it either way.

AM- it really was pretty cold for my run today. Mid 20's and windy with windchill of 14 F. Dressed up a bit. Ran 6 uneventful miles. I like running around the soccer field watching the older kids play their games. I played for 11 years so it brings back some memories.

Lunch- The very hard morning rain stopped just in time for the lunch run, which was fortuitous as 40 deg and rainy isn't the most enjoyable weather. Nice 7 miles then a bit of xt.

PM- Paris Mtn with Barry and the Honnette's. A bit cold, 35 deg when we started, but I dressed appropriately. Started at the middle lot as Barry and I didn't want the full loop. Ended up doing 7 miles, no watch- I actually felt great the whole time with no knee pain. I even sang a bunch of Christmas carols (to the chagrin of my run-mates). Running leaf covered trails at night for the first time in two months was a bit of an ankle turner, though.

Lunch- Finally made it back to a 10 mile run. Felt fine- still have knee pain, but not getting worse. I think there were 10 of us today, which we think is a record for most guys on a run in November when it is low 30's temp. But who's keeping track. It's fun to run with a group that big.

PM- busy day so missed morning and lunch run. Jim ended up busy all day, too, so we hooked up for a 5 pm run. Did the GE trails twice, plus a track loop, with the last 3 miles after dark which made it a bit exciting. Saw 2 people and 1 deer the whole time.

AM- ran the roads around home with Jason. About 13 miles. Good to catch up. Clocked the 11th mile at 7:11, so we weren't going too slow.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

AM- 10 on a cool, windy Thanksgiving morning. Now time to cook and eat! Happy Thanksgiving- we are so blessed! When I arrived home, all 4 of my kids were cuddled on a single couch cushion watching the start of the parade.
