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!

PM- PM. Instead of Barry and Seth, it was Eddie and Merle. Eddie's doing his first 100 in a few weeks, so we talked about that most of the time. It was the hottest run of the year so far, already 80 deg. Didn't feel too bad, though. Usual 10 miles 1:38.

Lunch- snake day. Right as I started running, I saw what looked like a small dead snake on the GE track. As I went to poke it, I decided better and grabbed a stick. Then a longer stick. I poked the little critter (maybe 18 inches long) and it was very much alive. It started slithering off the track, then curled up in stricking position. Inspection by the 3 of us out there led to the conclusion that it was a timber rattlesnake. I'm glad it didn't bite me. A few minutes later, we saw a big (2.5 or 3 feet long) black rat snake in the middle of the road. Jim jumped over this one. Ran 10.5 miles or so on another hot day- not as bad as the record 86 deg high yesterday, but still warm today.

No official run, but I did play 5 hours of paintball. It was a blast (get it?)
