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!

PM- 10 miles.  5 miles at 7:00 pace, then I decided I couldn't let Cody's morning run be faster than mine.  So I did two 6:30 miles followed by two 6:00 miles.  Felt good.  10 miles total, 1:08:00, 6:48.

Beats the #$%! out of my run yesterday where I just kept getting slower and more miserable as the run went on.

Cody- true, but I did more distance... :)

Jeff- yeah, but we all have days like that. These were my first 6:00 miles since SGM, while you do them all the time.
