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- Run up Green Canyon to a ways past the yurt.  I ran this 2 weeks ago and it was quite enjoyable as the snow was very packed and there was no ice- I did 10 min miles up, 7 min miles down.  Today was quite a different story- the snow was very slick, sometimes icy, and I either sunk in or slid around.  I averaged 12:15 up and could only do 8:30 pace down- very slow.  I probably won't run this again for another month- it's good when it's cold, and good in the summer, but not when it's thawing.  Too slow and hard to run.  Still nice to be in the mountains.

AM- Run with Jeff and Andrea in Idaho Falls.  The temp was about 30 deg, but there was a 25 mph wind with gusts to 35+ that made it interesting.  Accuweather says the windchill is 4 deg, though it didn't feel that cold.  Jeff let me borrow a windbreaker, which made all the difference in surviving.  It snowed a few inches, and the snow had blown onto the roads, making them very icy in spots.  We ran 13 miles, literally winding through the neighborhoods to minimize wind exposure, with lots of good chatting.  I planned to run more, but stopped by the in-laws to see if Marci wanted to run with me.  She (easily) convinced me to finish my run with her at noon, when it will hopefully be warmer and less windy.  13 miles overall at the inevitable slow pace given the conditions.  Thanks for letting me tag along, Jeff. 

PM- 9 miles with Marci around IF.  Still windy, and a bit warmer.  It was nice to run with Marci but without the jogging stroller, which would have been impossible to push today with the wind.
