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!

AM- back on my feet, back to work after running 5 miles.  Unfortunately, Marci got the virus today.  And so did my mother-in-law.  Fun.

PM- 8.  Planned on 10, but started to really drag after being sick/not eating yesterday, so stopped early. 

I examined my toes last night.  Right now I am missing 5 toenails (including 1 big toenail), and have 3 black toenails.  8 damaged/missing toenails.  Only both of my baby toenails are still normal.  I think this is a new record.  

On an unrelated note, I have signed up for Logan Peak Run and Grand Mesa 50 in the past few days.  Now I just have El vaquero loco and the Bear 100 to finish off my racing schedule.

AM- planned on 7, quit at 3 due to feeling very bad (still weak from sickness).  Added 4 elliptical miles.

PM- felt much better, so wanted to do a trail run.  Ran up the Logan River trail to past Spring Hollow, including some upper loops on the Spring Hollow singletracks.  The trail was very snowy, slushy, and muddy, but not icy (yet)- in other words, a perfect spring trail run.  90 min for 10 miles with 1250 ft climbing and descending.  Slow but enjoyable run.

AM- 5.5 in about 41 min.

PM- I was near North Logan so swung up to BST and ran 5.5 miles from above the golf course to just past the North Logan cemetery and back.  Nice weather for a run, lots of people and dogs on the trail.  I wonder when they will open the bathroom at the mouth of GC.  45:20.

AM- Long run with Cody, Paul, and Carson Campbell.  First time running with Carson, and enjoyed getting to know him a bit.  We ran from Smithfield on some dirt roads/trails to BST, then did a small bit on Green Canyon.  We ran down some roads and then a canal to get home.  I absolutely bonked with about 2-3 miles to go and slogged it the rest of the way.  About 20 miles is around 2:40.

I'm pretty happy to end up with 70 miles for the week, supposing I was sick at the start and only had 9 miles on Monday and Tuesday combined.  Next week will be near 80.
