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- Today was ultramarathon training.  How, you ask?  The trails are still snowy.  True, but a key component of ultramarathons is being able to refuel mid-run.  Seeing as today was Pizza Monday at Planet Fitness, the training program fell into place.  I showed up, ate 2 pieces of yummy Pier 49 sourdough pizza, ran a few miles, ate more pizza, ran, etc.  By the time I was done, I had run 10 miles and eaten almost 5 pieces of pizza.  My stomach didn't feel great, but I wasn't close to puking or anything like that.  Training was a success.

Yeah, I've still never even met you, Scott! I think you owe me some bagels, too.

I haven't heard from Joe in a while- don't know his plans.

bagels on me at the smithfield health days 10K, May 9:


If not sooner, we can count that as a run together, though it will just be for about 5 seconds as you guys pull away from me.

Hey- funny thing is I have run with James even though he doesn't live here.

Jon, this is my type of training, minus the running part. I could really get into the pizza thing.
