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!

No run, sick.  Legs are weak such that I can barely walk up a flight of stairs.  Good thing the 100 isn't today.

Lunch- 5 with Mike on a beautiful day in about 36 min.  Felt much better today, almost back to normal.

Got a free pair of Saucony Fastwitch in the mail yesterday.  First new lightweight trainers in a long time.  I got them since they don't make Tangents anymore but I didn't want to go as light as Kinvaras.  My last pair of Tangents lasted 5+ years, so we'll see how long these last.  I only wear them for road racing and a few workouts, so not much these days.

Lunch- 5 with a few strides.  Felt pretty sluggish and bad again.  Hope I really start feeling better in the next few days.  

Weather forecast for Sat is shaping up to be about 60 deg in the morning, high of upper 70's, with 50% chance of afternoon showers.

Quick Report- ran a decent Umstead 100 and had a good time.  Placed 4th overall while watching the amazing Mike Morton set a CR and 2 previous winners DNF chasing him.  Final time of 15:19 is 16th fastest ever on this 19 year old race.  Set my 50k, 50 mile, 100k, and 100 mile PR, so can't complain about that.  Marci and the kids were there cheering the whole time, and I had the most awesome crew and pacers that kept me from quitting at mile 50 when I felt terrible and weak (gotta stop racing when sick).  Good weekend.  

Full report now published.
