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- knee is improving but still noticeably sore, so there is no way I was going for a run, even though it was a gorgeous, 75 deg day outside. Did some elliptical and a bunch of foam rolling (quads are sore, not much else). 

Enjoyed following the Barkley on twitter, cheering for Jared to his finish. Congrats to him. As @runwicked said, “Jared Campbell is going to do well when the zombie apocalypse happens.”

Q: I'm debating what races to do later this year. Registration for Grindstone and JFK 50 open tomorrow. I've also considered TNF San Fran again, or Hellgate. Opinions?

PM long day at work, finally got out for a run at 5. Did 42 min on the trails behind GE. Knee didn't hurt at all, yeah. Small muscle soreness, but lots of muscle fatigue. It was very, very slow. Which is just fine. We'll call it 5 miles.

Lunch- I'm assigned to a new project at work, and it's rather hectic. I fear it may cut into my running. I got out for a late lunch run, just as Jim was wrapping up. He ran 40 min with me, then I went behind GE by myself. Just as I was turning around to get back for a meeting, I found Tom the Turkey behind me. Sure enough, he gave chase again, which was very painful on still-tired legs. I circled around a loop and lost him, then headed back to the gym. 8 miles or so in an hour.

Lunch- 10 miles, including a few with Jim behind GE hunting the turkey. Hot out- mid-80's. The temp jumped 30-40 deg from last week so feels very hot. I got my first sunburn of the year today.

AM- slept in a bit, then went for a run around home. Jason was going to come, but backed out with some lame excuse about his wife going into labor. **Priorities**  Anyways, today is the first run I felt some spring in my steps. First bit was easy, then picked it up and the rest was 7 min pace or faster. 13 miles in 1:35 on rolling roads. Mid-50's, nice run.
