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!

Back home at last.  Well, at least until I leave again tomorrow for Colorado.  But the top of my left foot is continuing to hurt and getting worse, so I am scrubbing today's long run in hopes it gets better by next week.  Dang it, there goes the 95 mile week I was on pace for...

Hope your foot feels better soon. That just doesn't sound fun at all.

Don't worry about the mileage you just finished a long race a few weeks ago. The day-off is better than just hitting 90 mile week when you know that it could injury you.

You gave me some great advice when I was injured so I want to prevent you from getting injured.

Sorry about the foot, hope it gets better very soon. Welcome home!

Jone MIles shmiles, your doing great and good to hear your looking after yourself, as it may end up as an injury, always another week, and as Kory said a recent long race.

Hey welcome home although by the time you read this you may be away again LOL
