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!

Ran 3 miles in the rain, including one with Aspen biking alongside. Now in AL waiting for bedtime. I'm excited for the race and hope it goes well. Given the state of my foot, realistic possibilities include everything from a DNF at mile 10 to a fast finish. I will do my absolute best.

When are you going to change your blog title? I'd say you're back in shape.
