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- 5.5 easy with a big pack of guys.  Really not sure if I'm getting better or not.  Going to test myself on a 90+ min run tomorrow, and maybe a few fast miles on Wed.  If I don't feel on top of it, I won't go to Washington.  This is the first time I've been sick in a while and I'm pretty tired of it.

PM- PM with six guys, including newcomer Jason. I was using this to see if my legs got fatigued after an hour but they felt fine. Normal loop, 10 miles.

Lunch- 8 with 9 guys.  Main topic of conversation was planning Aaron's wedding, since he just got engaged.  I felt pretty crappy.  I'm going to do a bit of a hard run tomorrow and decide if I go to Chuckanut based on how I feel.  Right now, 60% chance I go.

Am- wanted a workout to see if I should go to Seattle. Did a little run with 3 miles MP and felt ok. Not great, but good enough. So I'm going, but with low expectations. Heck, I even went to the doctor today cause now I have an eye infection on top of my cold.

In other news, I was invited to join Team PI, one of 20 ultra runners sponsored by Pearl Izumi. The team includes Nick Clark, Nick Pedatella, Dylan Bowman, Scott Jaime, and many others. I'm very excited. My singlet arrived today, so I'll be wearing it this weekend. My days of wearing greeny green shorts and my SGRC red singlet are over.

Ran the beautiful Chuckanut 50 k. Had low expectations and just wanted to enjoy myself. Mission accomplished. Nice course, wet and rainy, nice people, fun weekend with David Nelson and many other runners. Finished 20th overall. Technically my second fastest 50k race ever, somehow. More later.

Update 2 weeks later- finally did a Race Report compilation, including for this race. It's all on my Greenshortsrunning blog.
