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- BW. 3 mile warmup, then did 2 MP miles 6:12 pace or so, then 1 mile at 10 % grade at 10:00 pace. Repeated 2 more times, increasing flat pace each time and incline 1 percent. Added one last sub6 mile at the end, then cool down. So ended up with 7 miles in under 43 min and 30 min climbing. Not too bad, but tired after.

Lunch very slow 7 with the guys on a cold, windy day. 42 miles in 2 days.

Today is Marci and my 10th anniversary. We made reservations at a very nice local restaurant... but then ended up having to take our 1 year old with us due to some babysitter confusion. A quiet, romantic dinner for 2 ended up a noisy, squawking, not at all romantic dinner for 3. I'm sure we'll have some memories from this one. A lot different than our 5th anniversary, when we spent 2 relaxing hours at Melting Pot.

AM- 7

Lunch- 5.5. It was upper 30's and breezy, but the rain stopped just as we started so it actually was kind of pleasant.

AM- Ran Palmetto trail/Hogback mountain with Aaron, Lynn, and Joe. Aaron was real tired and we kept waiting for him, and he sent us ahead at mile 5. Joe turned around at 9. Great weather for a run, with some light snow on the trail in spots. Saw a big group of turkeys. Perfect time of year to run this- no thorns or stinging nettle yet. I ran easy to stay with the others until mile 13. Felt good, strong. Wish I had felt this way during Mt Mitchell. 4100 ft climbing, just under 20 miles, in 3:25 running time. I need to come do hill repeats on the initial climb, which ascends 1400 ft in 1.8 miles.

First 100 mile training week since August. Hope I can string 2 more together the next 2 weeks. Daylight savings will make Monday morning's run fun.
