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- At this point, I've basically given up on racing Western States and want to just be able to complete it. No matter how my knee is feeling, that means I need to get in a long run, as I haven't gone more than 3 hrs since Sept. No time for long run tomorrow so did one today, with lots of company. Went to the familiar stomping grounds of Paris Mtn and ran a short 7 mile loop with Barry and Seth. As we approached the cars, Aaron and Lynn were just starting (this was planned). We all ran up Sulfur where B and S turned home. The other 3 of us ran the normal route except did a double Kanuga hill at my request (that's 3 straight runs with DK, a 400 ft climb in 1.1 miles). I only took 2 gu's the whole run and really started bonking at mile 16. It felt great to actually have very tired legs. Added a bit at the end and had 21 miles and 3000 ft in 3:25 or so. Avg HR 165.

Man, the drive home felt great with tired long-run sore legs. I love that feeling and it's been a long time since I've felt that way. I really hope my knee is tolerable tomorrow.
