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!

World Class?

Your baby on the way?

Kicked off the now-disbanded team.

any others?

From Jon on Tue, Jan 06, 2015 at 13:10:34 from

Didn't change goal type. Baby and sponsor, yes. Other change was World Record to Former WR

From Cody on Tue, Jan 06, 2015 at 14:51:15 from

I got most of them I guess...

We (probably just me) are still waiting for your schedule to be decided...

From Jon on Tue, Jan 06, 2015 at 18:49:19 from

It's simple so far-

March- Georgia Death Race

June- Western States 100

And... that's it.

No idea what else I'll do, if any. Possibly none others until fall. At this point, going into WS with minimal races doesn't worry me.

From Little Bad Legs on Tue, Jan 06, 2015 at 19:36:46 from

Western States in June?! Awesome, man. I'll be cheering for you from Washington.

The Georgia Death Race sounds awesome! I have heard about it. Looking forward to hearing all about your experience there.
