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!

AM- 7 ez

Lunch- 10 more. Aaron won the lunch run group No-shave November contest this year, upsetting reigning champ Jason. As an award, Jason shaved his beard and gave it to Aaron in a baggie. Aaron carried the bag with us all run, spreading the beard along the route.  Yes, we are strange, but not abnormally so for a group of distance runners.

A bit chilly, but not as cold as it will be tomorrow. Coldest temps in 20 years. Not near as cold as much of the country, but cold for here. Rumor is Atlanta is colder than Anchorage.

Lunch- 9.5 on a cold day, 5 deg windchill. Aaron ran in shorts and shirt, no gloves or hat.

Kitchen water won't work, maybe frozen pipes. This isn't good. At all.

Lunch- much warmer today, 30 deg when we started. Lake, neighborhood, track, 10 miles. 

Kitchen pipes thawed out at home. Doesn't look like any pipes burst, so that's lucky. Some of our friends had some attic pipe burst and are dealing with major damages. Ouch.

Massanutten 100 lottery is on Friday. Hopefully this one is kinder than the rest- there's 364 entrants for 208 spots, so better odds than Western. Looking at the applicants, if 167 to 175 get in, that's a pretty top-heavy field right there. http://www.vhtrc.org/application/applicantsList.php?race=MMT

AM- Some major rain (i.e. 1+ inch per hour) and constant lightning from 5 am till 7 am. I waited till it didn't seem death was imminent, then went for my run. 10 miles around home, and didn't see another person, strangely. 45 deg and mizzle/fog felt like perfect temps for running. 

Carried my TV upstairs today. Ever since someone built a house behind ours, we lost reception for NBC and Fox, only getting CBS. Yes, only one channel. Anyways, apparently I can get more channels upstairs so now I can watch football on the TV instead of streaming on a tiny screen on my computer. Nice.

The DOW worked in my favor yesterday, so I finally got in a lottery after 2 years of no luck. Massanutten 100, here I come! It should be a very good field, too- Karl Meltzer, PI teammate Nick Pedatella, Brian Rusiecki, John Dennis, Pierre Loic Derange, Jason Lantz, David Frasier, Jeremy Waldrop, Jeremy Pade- stacked.
