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- Over the past 2.5 months, I have done decent mileage but almost no speedwork.  I need to do some prior to the 100, so today was the first workout.  2 miles warmup, then 10 miles at 6:00 pace.  I'll admit it was very tough but I got through it.  .5 mile cooldown, then 2 bagels (courtesy of Planet Fitness).  12.5 miles total in 79 min.

strangely, I dreamed about you running the rocky raccoon last night. I was there too. But I can't remember how it turned out or anything. It seemed like a cool dream, wish I could remember it. oh well.

oh- nice run!

I will second that is is ridiculously cold outside...sub zero is just too cold to run outside (gained this knowledge by experience and a bit of frostbite).
