Personal:

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!

Lunch- It rained the entire run today, with a fairly steady wind and chilly 45 deg temps- kind of like Saturday.  Jim, Todd, Jason and I headed out to the lake, where I learned they were all doing a workout (4 tempo laps of the slightly rolling, .85 mile lake).  I hadn't planned on it, but joined so I wouldn't have to run by myself.  First lap was 4:49, with Jim, Todd and I in a pack.  Jim sped up drastically at the start of lap 2 while Todd fell back.  Lap 2 was another 4:49, then lap 3 was 4:54 (the wind picked up noticeably on the backstretch of this lap, and I was rather cold and soaking wet).  I pushed lap 4 and finished in a 4:47.  Avg was 4:50 (5:40) pace for the workout- my first sub-6 workout this year.  Felt good, esp. given the less-than-ideal conditions.  Finished the run with a very wet 10 miles total.
