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!

7.  My left foot started hurting at the end of the run, so I will retire them one run earlier than planned.  So long, shoes!  They were good ones.

It was my first run with Cody since Nov 15.  We did a Planet Walk/Providence loop.  I only planned on 7-8, but we ended up doing 10.  10 miles, 1:15:30.

Almost 15 hours at work = no run.  I'll try to get up for a 4:30 am run tomorrow, but will likely be working 14 hour days every day till next Wednesday.  Fun.

Another 14 hour work day, leaving the house at 6 am.  I knew if I went home I would not get out the door to go running, so I took my clothes and went straight to the gym after work.  I did 6 miles at 7:30 pace, 2.5 miles at 6:30 pace, then .5 mile at 6:00 pace, then 1 mile at 8:00 pace to cool down.  Got home after 9 pm, just in time to say good night to my girls, shower, and now go to sleep.  Ah, life.  But it was good to get a run in, and my first run with faster miles.  Another long day tomorrow.

13 hours at work, then straight to the gym (if I step in my house, I won't get out again).  8 easy miles.  My left foot is really starting to hurt under the arch, which isn't surprising given my 0 miles to 40 miles in one week.  Ice, rub, and hope it gets better.  PF? 

Not sure if I will get a run in tomorrow- I will be at work all day (and on Sunday, too).

A lovely 12 hours at work.  After, I went straight to the gym and had just enough time for 6 miles before they closed and kicked me out.  Foot bugged me all day, the first time I have felt anything when I wasn't running.  A full day of work again tomorrow.
