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!

12 miles, with 3 at 6:30 pace and 2 at 6:00 pace.  Good run.  I only planned on 10, but had a little extra time so kept going.  Besides, I needed to make up a few miles from yesterday, when I decided to watch the Presidential address instead of taking a late night run.  I think it was a good decision.

AM- my alarm went off 3 days this week at 4 am but I was always too tired to get up.  I finally dragged myself out of bed today and got in 6 miles while watching the latest NFL free agency news on ESPN.  I have another run planned later tonight.

PM- 9 more.

Long run with Paul and Cody.  Cody and I started at the end of hollow road and ran 2.5 miles to the junction near Blacksmith Fork canyon.  The temp was 11 deg, and there was a very strong and cold headwind (windchill was probably below zero!), so Paul had the great idea of driving to the top and running down rather than freezing and fighting the wind.  We drove to the Hyrum hydro park, ran up a bit, then ran all the way down to Cody's car.  We averaged about 7:00 pace down the canyon.  At the bottom, the tail wind was so strong that my back got cold!  Once we got to the bottom, we drove back to Paul's car.  Cody and I finished off with a few more miles- a bit stiff and sore after sitting in the car, but it went fast.  Overall run of 16 miles at 7:14 average pace.  Cody bought us danish's on the way home- yummy.

Today was my longest run since St. George.  It was also a new weekly high mileage since SGM, 10 miles higher than my previous high.  Plans for next week are 60 miles with 2 hard workouts and an 18 mile run.
