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!

9 miles- 3 up Green Canyon (still very snowy for most of the trail), 3 down, then 3 miles along the Bonneville Shoreline trail.  Lots of small to medium hills.  Got real muddy again.

Ran from my house (mile 21.5 on TOU course) back to mile 15.5, then home.  I ran 8:15 miles on the way out, then 7:30 miles on the way home.  While not the fastest times, I am pretty happy for 3 reasons- 1) I was pushing the baby and jogging stroller the whole way  2) It was raining pretty hard for much of the run and was windy, which really slows the stroller down, and 3) the stroller got a flat tire at the turnaround point, meaning I ran 6 miles with a flat tire and increased drag, including the hills on TOU course from miles 18 to 20.  Overall, a good run.

Total time 1:34:28

I ran from my house along the last 5 miles of the TOU course (very nice to have the miles marked), and then reversed the route.  I went out at 7:20 pace for the first 5 miles, then returned at 6:50 pace, which felt pretty good.  My last mile (mile 23 to 22 on the TOU) was a 6:30.  I felt good, which made me not feel quite so bad about taking yesterday off.  And being able to run 10 miles, with half of them under my goal time for RDS, sure helps me feel at least somewhat prepared for the race. 766- 126 miles

So my first toenail of the season has officially turned black.  It is not uncommon for me to be missing 4 or 5 toenails all running season.  And yes, my shoes are long enough- I think I curl my toes a bit when I push off.  Anyone else lose toenails on a regular basis?

6 miles at 10 pm as the first of my 3 runs in 15 hours.  Pretty easy pace (7:45/mile)

2nd of my 3 runs in 15 hours.  7 am, ran to Firehouse, then decided to follow Paul's lead and run the deer trail.  I ran up cliffside, along the deer trail to above fox hollow, then home through Providence.  Felt pretty tired and sluggish going up mountain road, but felt much better running the deer trail hills.  I lost one of my gloves, but drove up later and found it.

3rd run was at 12:30, meaning I did 3 runs (6 mile, 9 mi, 6 mi) in 14.5 hours. 

My 3rd run was from mile 21 to 18 and back along TOU course.  First 3 miles averaged 7:20 pace, 3 miles back was 6:40 pace, which I was pleased with supposing my mileage and that it was net uphill.  I actually felt quite a bit better in my 3rd run than my 2nd run.  I think I am in decent shape for the RDS (not great, but decent) and should be able to meet my 7:00/mile goal pace.  Supposing I only started running in February, I think I am doing ok.

Finished the day with 2 hours of ultimate frisbee (a little speedwork) and a 30 minute hike.  My legs are tired.

766- 147
