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!

PM- my goal this week is to run at least 3 miles every day, to make sure my legs are used to running a bit.  3 running, 8 biking.  I think I sweat more when biking than running.

PM- 4 running miles, 1 very fast walking mile (practice for RR), then 3 cross train.  I can't believe my race is almost here- I've quite literally been planning on this race for 18+ months, and I'm already nervous.

AM- 4, all running.

Some of my regular readers (do I have any regulars?) may have noticed I'm not commenting on my blog or any other FRB-ers as often.  I'm restricting myself to getting on the FRB only once per day in the evening, and don't have as much time to look at everyone's blogs.  I'll try to read everyone's at least once a week.  This should make everyone happy to not have to read my dumb and silly comments on a daily basis!  Although my company is laying off 500 people tomorrow... so I may have much more free time for the FRB soon.

PM- Made it through the layoffs, fortunately- stressful day.  Matt made it, too.  Thanks for your thoughts, everyone.  Ran 5 miles in the evening in my new shoes (my second pair of XT wings, though this one is 1/2 size larger in case my feet swell during 100's), then 4 miles crosstraining.

PM- 2.5 run, 3 xt.

It's days like today that actually make me enjoy my commute.  I have been able to leave behind the smog and constant fog of Logan to enjoy blue skies and sun at work.

AM- I'm getting frustrated that my hips aren't getting better.  I ran 1 MP mile today, then one normal mile, plus 8 miles cross training.  

Cody pointed out that Karl Meltzer did his race favorites for Rocky Raccoon 100 next week- looks like I'm on it.  I don't think I'll be able to live up to it with my hip, though.  I expect my first 100 will truly be an exercise in enduring pain. 

I'll do a few more cross train miles next week but no running to try to give my hips one last rest.
