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!

AM- I planned on running 8 miles, but my hip started hurting for the first time in a month.  Grr.  4.5 miles running, 3 biking.

AM- 6 xt

PM- Ran up Dry Canyon again, further this time.  44 min up, which was far enough to get past almost all the tracks.  Once it was a slow slog through mid-shin deep soft snow, I turned around.  Fell a number of times on the way down when my leg would unexpectedly sink up to my knee in snow... which actually results in a kind of fun soft-snow landing.  20 min down, then did 4 miles on Deer Fence.  92 minutes, so we'll call it 12 miles (even though it wasn't really that far).  Roughly 2500-2700 ft climbing on the run.  My NB800 work perfectly in these snow conditions.

PM- I ran Dry Canyon for the third time in 7 days, this time while enjoying Cody's company.  The new snow definitely made it slower than earlier this week, with more falling on the way down.  Still very enjoyable.  I think Cody's garmin said we officially went 6.25 miles (48 min up, 23 min down- one of the slower 5k's of my life on the way up)- but when you add on the 2000ft elevation gain plus the snow, it was 9 miles equivalent :)  I may have to stop tracking mileage and just do time.  It was nice to run with someone- first time in a month.

PM- I was gone all morning, so missed running with anyone.  I laid down for a short nap when Marci went running at 1:30... and woke up at 5 pm!  Wow, I was tired.  Seeing as today is our anniversary and we were dropping the kids off at 6 pm, my planned 16 miles was out the window.  So I ran PW4, and will maybe pull a Davy and do a longer run Monday morning.
