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!

Ran around a bit, the met Cody, then ran to Paul's house.  First time in a group of 3 in a long time.  I felt like I was in a herd.  Granted, it was a herd that collectively barely tops 400 lbs, so it's a good thing we didn't run into a herd of something really big, like siamese cats or something like that.  Started off at sub-7:00 pace for 3.5 miles, then ~7:00 with Cody, then slowed some with Paul (may be the only time I can say that in my life) and we never recovered once we dropped him off at Planet Fitness.  Hmm, I wonder if Planet Fitness is somehow related to planet walk...

Eventually dropped Cody off, then ran around a bit more to make it 14 miles or so.  1:41:28, 7:15 avg.

Cody was kind enough to wait for a later run so I could buy a fridge after work.  I met him at planet walk, and we ran the Young Ward loop backwards.  We did 3 miles warm up (~7:00 pace), then did a 5 mile tinman tempo.  I wanted to aim for 6:30 pace, but Cody insisted on 6:15-6:20.  We compromised and did 6:10's for most of it.  Actually, first was ~6:20, then 6:14, then 6:09 for the next 2 despite slight uphills.  Last one was a 6:04 and felt better for me than the first- I could have done a few more at that pace.  Good workout.  After a potty break, we did 2 miles back to Cody's house, then I did 3 more winding home at ~7:00 pace.  13 miles, 1:26:31, 6:40 avg pace.

I am a bit bummed out cause I figured I would do a nice 19-mile run Saturday with some guys, forgetting that everyone will be in Moab.  Oh well.

2 times planet walk.  Saw Cody and Bethany, kidless.  Normal weather, 32 deg, but staying light later.  I'm still excited for daylight savings.

It was an easy run today, but I was moving pretty good- about 6:45 pace.  I was going so fast I felt like jtshad, except I didn't throw in any 5:40 miles or 75 second quarters...

We are closing on our house tomorrow and it is our anniversary, but I'm gonna do my best to squeeze a run somewhere in there.

We sold our house today- it is no longer officially ours!  Closed!  Jtshad, thank your mom for the great referral.  Glad that is over with.

Snuck in 5 quick miles before heading off to the anniversary dinner (4 years married today!) with Marci.  5 miles, 34:34.

I stayed in SLC last night for recruiting at the U of U, so I woke up early and went for a run from my hotel to City Creek Canyon.  Did 9 miles total, including 4 or 5 on trails!  It was great- not too much snow/ice on the trails, unlike in Logan.  First trail run of the year!  Thought I might bump into darkhorse or AdamRW, but no luck.  Run in Provo tomorrow.

Met at Sasha's house for a group run- Sasha, Michelle L, Hyrum, Adam, Tyler.  First time meeting most of them.  We did a short warmup loop, then went to the Provo River (at least that is what I think it was) and ran out by Utah lake.  Pretty easy pace, lots of conversation.  My right foot really started to hurt at mile 8 or so, underneath the arch.  New pain, and it didn't go away.  It was rather acute and noticeable the rest of the run, resulting in a slight limp sometimes.  It will require some attention and stretching the next 2 days, and hopefully will be gone by Monday afternoon.  Dropped off Adam and Tyler at mile 12, then did another loop.  I was planning on 18 but we did 20 (or at least that is what I am assuming, since I'm pretty sure Sasha wouldn't have let us stop short).  Pretty easy pace and felt very good other than my foot, especially considering it was my first 18+ miler of the year.  2:32:05, ~7:30 avg. 

I was very hungry by the end, so I swung by the store afterwards and scarfed down 2 donuts courtesy of the change I could scrounge up in my car.  Yummy.  Then had 6 pancakes with berries on top.  Yup, it's been a good morning so far...
