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 posted some photos of a recent run up Dry Canyon on my other blog.  It sure looks different now than in the summer.  Plus it contains a few photos of RR100, since I realized I didn't post any.

PM- I wanted to run as far as I could without pain.  Umm, yup, only made it 2 miles.  And my hips hurt!  Added 4 miles on the bike.  This is lame.

PM- 2 miles elliptical, then 8 miles running, somewhat low pain.  I'm just trying to run as much as I can each day without making anything worse.

PM- 8 running, 2 elliptical.

I was sitting on the floor today, and my big toenail got stuck in the carpet.  When I stood up, it ripped off.  Didn't hurt, cause it was black from RR100 and already dead.  Now I have 2.5 toenails on my right foot, plus 1 black toenail.  I've lost lots of toenails in my day, but never a big one like this.  Looks funky (only click on link if you're brave).

AM- Trail run with Cody.  We ran on the Logan River trail from Stokes to just past Spring Hollow, then back to the car.  Then we ran up again- I ran to the singletrack, where I stopped for a potty break, then ran to the car, while Cody continued onwards for a bit more.  I added a mile on the road.  I decided to not run the full 15 to spare my hips/abs a few days recovery.  20 deg, a bit chilly and windy- our water bottles froze.  The trail was generally snowpacked and a bit icy, but runnable.  Good run, and my first one with Cody in a while.  13 miles in 1:50 (8:30 avg).

PM- Marci had her 10 mile long run today and wanted some company at the end, so I pushed the girls in the stroller for 3.5 miles with her.  Much warmer than this morning.
