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- 7.5 easy. It's my birthday today. Since I know some of you will ask- no, I'm not going to run 31 miles or anything like that. In fact, I'm not running any more today.  I'm going to enjoy a nice dinner with my wife and play with my daughters after work, something I don't get to do as often as I would like.

Happy birthday Jon, hope you have a great day.

Happy Birthday. October Birthdays are the best (me, you, and Allie - that I know of). You also have the same birthday as one of my best friends. I hope you have a great day.

Maybe for your birthday challenge you should eat 31 bagels. Eh?

And I totally forgot to add Smooth to the October birthday list. Hers is on Friday. Phew. Glad I got that in.

Happy Birthday. The 31 miles did sound cool but family is always better. You might get cold running 31 miles in your birthday suit anyways....
