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!

I'm finding myself thinking more and more about the Barkley. Less than 4 weeks away, so time to get serious. Should be fun. How much fun, you ask? This much fun...

 That's last year's winner.

AM- 8 miles plus some stair climbing and BUBW.  I moved up again on the wait list to number 2!!!  Crazy.  Just 2 more drops and I'm officially in the Barkley marathons, something I never would have even dreamed of applying for 6 months ago.

PM- 8 more by myself.

Lunch- 6 ez

Planned to go to Paris Mtn but I've been feeling increasingly sick with a cold, with even my voice almost going out this morning.  My lunch run wiped me out much more than it should have, so I bagged the evening run.  I don't want to risk worse sickness the week before a big race.

9 years ago today, Marci and I were married. Man, it's gone fast and been fun and crazy.

Still sick- really couldn't sleep last night, coughing all day. Did 15 min abs and did a little 30 min run. Felt tired. Gotta get better within a week.

At home sick, so no run. First goose egg since dec 19. At least I'm getting lots of rest for my taper!

Feeling a modicum better so I went to work.  Didn't even take running clothes so I would tempt myself.  Still hoping to get better.

After work, I walk in the door to see a beautiful homemade meal sitting on the table- chili soup, cornbread, corn on the cob, chips and homemade guac.  Then I hear my 4 year old in the bathroom crying, so I walk in to see her sitting on the pot.  She looks up at me and starts puking, so I naturally try to catch all of it in my hands.  Welcome home indeed.  Then, after washing my hands, my wife dashes to the bathroom and starts puking herself.  We figure this came from my 1 year old, who was throwing up all Wed night.  So, dinner was just my 1 year old, my 6 year old, and me, eating the food.  Now I hope I don't get the stomach flu on top of my cold. 

I was planning to taper this week, but figured I'd have 75 miles, rather than 30.  Oh well- most important is to recover.  Mileage is irrelevant for both Chuckanut next Saturday and the Barkley at the end of the month.

It's been a few crazy days with me sick plus a puking wife and 3 kids. I think I've finally turned the corner a bit though. 5.5 easy miles- didn't feel great but it was nice to be moving again. Gotta get better for Chuckanut in 7 days. Definitely had more taper this week than planned.
