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!

AM- 9 easy. Felt better, if still a bit of a lingering (or new) headache. Didn't have time for all 10 due to early meeting.

I'm working on a slideshow of my favorite running pictures from the past 8 years. I'll post a link here when done. It's mainly for my own enjoyment, as I doubt viewership will be broad.

Lunch- 10, most with Todd and Scott.

One of the medicines the doctor gave me Monday for a sinus infection apparently has the side effect of causing the hiccups. I'm not kidding when I say I've had the hiccups at least half my waking hours for 2 straight days. This is really getting annoying.

AM- I decided to put Rob away for good on the yearly mileage total. It took 10 hours, but I figure a 48.5 mile boost to my total should put this out of reach for him.

That'll do, Donkey. That'll do.

Just kidding- I'm sick and didn't run.

back to back long runs, something I've only done once. This should really finish Rob off for the year.

Am. Now that I've beat Rob for the year, I figured being at the top of the entire FRB for the year would be nice. Easy 2247 mile run. Although it appears it won't record until the 24th. What a surprise Rob will have when I double his mileage.

Ok, I removed the mileage from the past 3 days. I've been sick so haven't run at all.

PM- 4 miles easy. 70 deg and humid. One of those "first run back after being sick, felt very sluggish, almost like 9 min pace even though it was actually closer to 8 min pace" runs. 

Merry Christmas, everyone!

No run today, in Columbia most the day, then appts around home.

The year of rain is going out with a bang, 3.5 inches of rain today (and it's only 5 pm), almost 8 inches this week. The creek by our house is normally about 4 feet wide and under a foot deep, but flooded to several hundred feet wide and 6 feet deep earlier today, almost taking out the concrete bridge. It's crazy. We've had 65 inches of rain since the start of June! My phone keeps buzzing to tell me of multiple flood warnings and flash flood warnings right now.

AM- Dropped off the 3 youngest at the gym babysitter, then did 10 on the treadmill.

Happy New Year, eveyone!

Here's my running info from 2007 when I joined the FRB. My mileage has a strong downward trend the past few years. And my 1 race this year was by far the fewest ever, though not the lowest racing miles, as it takes a lot of 5k's to equal one 100.
