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!

Met Paul at the start of the Logan River trail.  Joe and Lisa were no-shows.  Light dusting of snow on the ground- pretty darn good running conditions for December.  Good run, conversational pace.  Talked about the blog, running 5k's, but, for the first time in a while, no football.  Didn't go quite to Guinavah Malibu, so he made us tack on an extra mile at the end.  I think we ran around 10.5 miles.

Nasty case of the stomach flu, so no run.  I did go to work, even though I shouldn't have, with the worst part being the 1 hour commute.

Today is the first day in a week that I wasn't feeling any ill effects from the stomach flu.  And it snowed- I love running in the snow!  There was about 4-6 inches on the ground, and it started snowing more just as Cody got to my house.  We ran planet walk to Icon to planet walk, then planet walk again, then home.  Stopped snowing just as I got home.  I love running in newly fallen snow!  About 7.5 miles, 54:40- not bad doing sub-7:30 on snow and given that I haven't run for a week.

Left for work at 5:45 am. Finally returned home for the first time almost 15 hours later, at 8:30 pm.  Umm, yeah- no run.  Plus I'm starting to feel sick again with a sore throat- argh!

Sick sick sick.  I think I have been sick more in the past 6 weeks than in the past 2-3 years combined.  I rarely get sick.  Now my mean cold has gotten even worse and added an eye infection on top of it, with red, sore, pus-filled eyes.  Marci already left for Christmas, so I am home alone.  I just hope my eyes get better so I can drive to the in-laws before Thursday.

Sick.  Marci and the kids left on Sunday for her parent's for Christmas, while I stayed home so I could go to work Mon-Wed.  Instead I have been laid up at home, sick and alone.  I should have gone with her, I guess.
