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!

Lunch- chilly out today. 6 with the guys. Feeling excited for the race. Weather is supposed to be rainy and cold on a course known for being muddy and slippery. Jason lost his shoe 3 times in the mud last year and said traction was an issue. And it's horse trails, so they get all chunked up. Sweet.

Lunch- it snowed yesterday. It was 44 deg out with a cold wind blowing. I saw white things everywhere and figured it was small flower petals or something. Then they started hitting my windshield and melting. Wow- snow in SC at the end of March. 5 minutes later, it was gone.

4 miles today, with 4 strides. I barely feel like my run has started and it's already over. Short.

Quick report- ran, without a doubt, the muddiest, sloppiest race of my life today. Fun, painful, challenging. Finished a distant second to Brian Rusiecki in 8.5 hrs. Rain, rain, mud, water, and more mud. My left knee is absolutely jacked up, too, probably from all the slipping and sliding. Great course with lots of climbing, good aid, perfect markers. 77 starters, 43 finishers.
