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!

New race report. Now I'm only 3 races behind. http://greenshortsrunning.blogspot.com/2014/02/getting-lost-lookout-mountain-50-mile.html

AM 12 while watching the Olympics

Lunch10 miles. Tied a record with 13 guys running. That's a huge group barreling down the road. In the cold rain, no less.

It might snow tomorrow so they already cancelled school.

AM BW while watching cross country skiing at the Olympics. I enjoy watching that sport for obvious reasons. Anyways, 4 mile warmup, 10 mile tempo in 62:13. Started 6:20 pace, finished sub 6. Not in A+ shape right now! just passable. 16 miles total in 1:47. Then foam roller. That's the only stretching I do with any regularity.

Lunch- I talked the group into running the muddy, snowy trails behind GE. Enjoyable in the snow, a rarity around here. 6 miles. Probably have to work from home tomorrow.

AM the whole city is shut down due to snow, so I'm working from home. Fedor lives nearby, so we ran 50 min on the snow packed, empty roads in the snow and wind. Then I added on extra. 14ish miles. Good practice for Mt Mitchell Challenge next week.

Lunch- working from home. We ended up with 4 or 6 inches of wet snow, and it's now 40 deg and melting fast. My run was an absolute slush fest. Not sure when my toes have been so cold. It will be a hard slog next week if they are this cold in the race. Ran to the soccer fields, the tried my MicroSpikes for the first time. They worked well for traction but the weight was more noticeable than I hoped. Finished with 9 miles.

Lunch uneventful run, other than slush and all the stopped cars due to wrecks backing up traffic onto all the side roads. Faster to be on foot today. 8.5+1.5

Lunch- helped someone move, then met Lynn and Aaron at Paris Mtn. I have way too many trail shoes, but I didn't have any in my car in a day they were actually needed for snow, ice, and mud. We ran into Joe VanLeeuwen and he joined us for most the run. Didn't do hike only sulphur springs and couldn't get to lower Kanuga due to ice, so ended up doing an out and back on BR and upper Kanuga. 94 min, 9-ish miles. Taper now for Mt. Mitchell next week.
