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!

After 3 days rest, I was hoping my foot would feel better.  It hurt for the first 1/2 mile, then started warming up a bit.  I ran for a few miles, then did elliptical with Paul while talking to him about PF, then ran another bit.  It hurt during the last part- dang it.  I'll have to really start treating this.  6 miles total.  Now it's off to Florida.

Very nice, warm run on a 65 deg evening at 10:30 on the beach in Cocoa Beach, Florida.  No moon, so it was very dark, allowing me to see the cruise boats steaming out to sea.  I practically had the beach to myself and really enjoyed it.  The high was 10 deg in Logan today, so this was a nice change.  I wandered into the water at the very end, so I am hoping my shoes dry fast enough for a morning run tomorrow.  Now I will shower and sleep.  Tomorrow I will spend all day presenting my engineering drawing of the Ares Rocket to NASA that I have spent the past 6 months on at work.  Hope it goes well.

14.2 miles at just under 7:30 pace.  3 deg windchill when we started with plenty of icicles on eye lashes, clothes, and Paul's beard.  Cody and I did about 9 together, then we did about 5 more with Paul.  They even dragged me up the hill to Cliffside- man, I am not in good shape right now.  Foot hurt the whole time, but not overly so.  Longest run since SGM.
