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!

Lunch run 8.  It was 32 deg and rainy, which is about as miserable as conditions get.  But it actually wasn't that bad- a couple of us were even wearing shorts.  There was a bit of ice on the roads this morning so they cancelled the schools, which the definitely would not have done in Utah.

Evening update- according to weather.com, it is now 46 deg in Greenville (and increasing!), 7 deg in Logan, and 9 deg in Idaho Falls.  Life is good again.

It wasn't a Civil War. It was a War between the States (as they always say down here). Just don't ask me what the difference is.

In Georgia, the natives refer to it as 'The War of Northern Aggression'.
