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!

Typical lunch run 8 with the guys.  Did a few situps and pushups after- I figure I better start doing a little bit of stuff like that.

PM- 9.5 with Barry at Paris Mtn.  Beautiful weather- 70+ deg when we started, 68 when we finished at 7:30 pm.  Took a little easier and shorter route today, as part of my recovery week.  9.5 miles in 1:25 with 1500 ft climb/descend.

AM- My mom is in town, so we drove to Paris Mtn, where she took a hike and I took a nice run.  I felt great, not surprising due to my super-easy recovery week.  My normal PM run averages 9 min pace or so, but today I averaged 7:43 pace.  We parked at the upper lot and I did some big loops around Kanuga/North Lake, etc.  Went down to the lake twice.  I went fairly easy the first 4.5 miles, then started pushing the pace more as I had runners to pass.  I finally reached a junction with only 10 minutes till I was due to meet my mom, and decided to really fly by taking the long route.  The next half mile over rolly, technical terrain was sub-6 pace, and the 1.5 miles back to the car were about 6:25 pace- definitely the fastest I have ever run on those trails.  It was a blast dodging rocks and trees, going up and down the trail.  Good run- 9.5 miles in 1:11, including 1200 ft climbing with equal descending.  Now off to Asheville with the family.  And back to the normal mileage next week- should be 80 miles or so.
