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- For the life of me, I honestly can not remember if I did 6, 7, or 8 miles this morning.  I think that must be a little-known result of high mileage.  We'll go with the middle number.

Lunch- 8+3. 

Looks like the high is 83 tomorrow, and in the 70's and 80's for the next 10 days.  Springtime.

Lunch- 8 on the first 80 deg day of the year.

PM- Paris Mtn with Barry, Justin, and Paul.  12 miles in about 2 hours on a warm evening.  I usually buy dinner on the way home but didn't tonight, forgetting that shopping day is tomorrow.  Scrounged together a hodgepodge of  ramen noodles with fried eggs, mandarin oranges, and chocolate milk.

Lunch- 5+3 on a warm day

Up way too late last night for a morning run.  In bed at 11, but didn't sleep till 1:30 am.  We're trying to potty train our 3.5 year old and she held her bladder for 15 hours, refusing to use the bathroom!  Finally took a leak at 1 am, but wouldn't go again today.  Determined kid.

Lunch- Tapers are strange, cause I feel like trash with dead legs for the first while, even though I'm running fewer miles than before the taper.  Today was the first day this week I felt fairly decent.  Ran 6 miles easy by myself on the GE track in 80 deg temps.  5k race tomorrow.

Won a race (my third this month), set a road/off-road 5k PR, and had an overall great time at the Milliken Earth Day run.  And wore a leprechaun hat the whole time- really.  Good times.  Who says you have to do speedwork to set a 5k PR- I think you should just train for a 100 miler!  Race report here.  Even broke out my oldest shoes for the first time in 5 years- go NB 800's (the precursor to the NB 101's).  Must be lucky.
