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!

3 miles in 20:35, then potty break, then 3 miles in 19:40, then 3 miles in 21:20, then 1 mile (well, about .8 mile) in 5:13.  Felt real good.

Ran to Cody's house, then did a 6 mile landfill loop with him.  Then ran home.  Decided that I might as well add a few more minutes to make it 10 miles even since I was so close.  1:15:22.  Heat spell is definitely over- it was about 20 degrees and rather windy, with some snow by the end.  I was very cold by the time I finished.  Jackets are good to block the wind, but enough sweat builds up after about an hour that they become rather cold.

Multiple laps on planet walk.  Probably closer to 7.5 miles than 7, but I'll round down.  7:05-7:15 average pace.

Girl's night out, so I had the kid.  I went to the rec center in hopes I could find some way to still get a decent workout in.  At first I tried doing laps around the indoor track, but everytime I disappeared around the corner, McKinley started screaming bloody murder.  No go.  So, after a few other tries, I finally went to the racquetball court.  And ran back and forth.  And back and forth.  And back and forth.  After a while, I figured the munchkin had figured out what I was doing, so we went back to the indoor track.  I proceeded to run while Kinley wandered around, though she really didn't get in people's way too much (mainly cause there were very few people).  The track has 13.5 laps per mile, and I ran on it for over an hour.  I don't even want to think about how many laps that was.  Must be a new record.

9 miles I think, but I wasn't counting laps, 1:07:36

Morning run, low teens temp but actually didn't feel to bad.  Ran to planet walk, met Cody there, did Young's Ward loop, plus a bit, then home.  13 miles in all, 1:32:13, which works out to about 7:05 pace.  Some miles in the middle were as fast at 6:45 pace.  Felt good. 

One of the topics Cody and I discussed was the shape we are in this year versus last year.  I am in a lot better shape than this time last year, plus a lot thinner (20-25 lbs).  Last Jan and Feb combined I estimated I did about 115 miles, with almost all of it in February (I wasn't on the blog till end of Feb) and did 184 miles in March.  I did 199.5 miles in Jan this year, and Feb should be 220-230, with 270 or so in March.  Last year I didn't hit 270 till July.  I will continue slowly building up mileage to avoid injury and am looking forward to a great yeat.
