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!

Lunch- 8

PM- PM with Barry and Justin, running a few non-standard trails (like the slow, twisty, technical Brissy Ridge).  10.57 miles in 1:53 with 1500 ft climbing.  Bonked, so Barry was kind enough to give me a gu he had.  Feeling a bit tired, worn down, and borderline sick.  So went to bed at 10 and slept 7 hrs.  Oh yeah, did I mention it's our 8th anniversary today?

AM- Run on the rolling hills around my house.  Ran 14 miles, including 6 at tinman tempo effort.  Then had to go home since Marci is going out of town with some friends.  Took the girls to the gym and did 6 more.  20 miles total in about 2:25.

Only one word for how I feel right now- exhausted.  Plain tired and beat. 

Here's a nice picture from the Mind Over Matter 15k website, showing the female winner crossing one of the log bridges.
