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!

Lunch- 8 in the rain, mostly by myself.

PM- PM with a crew of 6, a new record.  Barry, Aaron, Carl, Justin, newcomer Seth, and myself.  Usual loop on a rainy, muddy, puddly night, except that everyone decided to run the last 3 miles back on the road.  Except that I didn't really want to, and someone challenged me to run the trails faster than they could on the road.  Game on- had lots of fun dashing and splashing my way down the mud for the last 3 miles at maniac pace, and beat 3 of the 5 guys.  Good times.  I needed a workout, anyways, and my knee felt ok.  Finished with 10.5 miles in 1:50 with 1400 ft climb.

AM- 5. Tired today.  Not running/legs tired- sleepy tired.  Plus I've got a pretty decent cold.

Lunch- 8 with Phil in the rain.  It rains a lot around here.  We have one of the big 5k's around here this Saturday.  It's the only race I've done every year, and I set my road 5k PR there last year.  We'll see what happens this year.  I know Phil's gunning to beat me.

Pouring rain all day, plus a lunch meeting, leads to a 10 mile treadmill run in the late afternoon.  Listened to Crockett's podcast and watched Karate Kid II.  We even have a chance of snow tonight, which would be the first in over 2 years.

Am- 10 ez. The gym has 5 tv's and all 5 were covering Lance and Manti. Usually lance on 3 and manti on 2.

Lunch 8 on the trails by work. I caught a toe and went down hard. In a puddle. Hardest fall in years, bad enough it knocked the wind out of me and I had to sit down for 5 min recovering. Counted blood from 11 wounds and hit my knees so hard I seriously think I bruised my left kneecap. Could hardly walk the rest of the day. All this happened, of course, cause I have a 5k race tomorrow. Of course I do. Should be fun. If I can run that is.

AM- Ran Run Downtown 5k today, breaking my PR by over 20 seconds and taking 5th overall at a very competitive race.  One of the best 5k's of my life.  Good day.  Full race report on my green shorts blog. Race results here.

I have such an ultra-mindset that I don't even put any non-trail ultras on my race schedule (shown at left).  I wonder if that's a bad thing.
