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!

Ha! You'll be back. Unless you start rollin and smoking "doobies". Then again, I've read ultra runners using Mary J to improve performance as a pain killer.

You'll have plenty of time for retirement when you're...LIVING IN A VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER.
