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!

The roads were pure ice, covered with 2 inches of new, dry, very slick snow.  In other words, the absolute worst running conditions possible.  So I went to Planet Fitness and was greeted with my first every Pizza Night!  All you can eat Pier 49 pizza!  Needless to say, I was determined to get my membership's worth.  I ate one big piece immediately, ran 3 miles, ate another piece (yup, I still have my stomach of steel), ran 3 more miles, then finished with 2 more pieces.  Yummy.

Goose Egg, which is too bad cause I really wanted to run every day this week.  But when you first step foot in your house at 9:30 pm, it makes it real hard to run that day.  12 miles tomorrow with Paul.

Long run- it was my longest run since Nov 15 and my first run of more than 10 miles in a month.  Paul and I did the Youngward loop with a bit added on so I could get 40 miles this week.  Normal amount of chattiness for he and I, though I was breathing hard.  My legs were pretty tired by the end, as expected.  But I made it- it's nice to have enough fitness that I can take 2 months off and then just get up and run a half marathon distance (run, not race).

I got 3 running related Christmas gifts this year from my lovely wife, and I used 2 of them for the first time today- fleece headband/earwarmer, and a Garmin 205!  What a great wife!  I'm sure I will enjoy the Garmin.  Unfortunately, I somehow stopped it mid run today so cut out 3 miles.  But per Paul's garmin, we did 13 miles at 7:30 pace.  I have to comment on how most of my runs this week on a treadmill feel harder at 7:30 or even 8:00 pace for 6-8 miles than it does to run 7:30 pace for 13 miles on the roads.  I really struggle to run fast on treadmills.

Now it is off to an adult's pinewood derby, then watch NFL football!
