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!

I haven't done a single minute of exercise since the race.  I'm wrapping up the Barkley race report and it should be posted within a day or two.  It's picture and word heavy, fitting for a race of such epic-proportions, and hopefully enjoyable.  In the meantime, I'll let you ponder this quote Joe Grant posted on his blog the other day:

"Mountains are the means, the man is the end.  The goal is not to reach the tops of mountains, but to improve the man."

- Walter Bonatti

Well, I've finished my Barkley race report, right up until the point where I quit.  But at the Barkley, just quitting can be a multiday ordeal, so I won't be able to post for another day or two.  It will be worth it. 

Lunch- some xt.  First workout in 10 days.

It's that time of year again.  I mean, springtime is just rough in South Carolina.  Brutally nice.

The waiting is over!!!  My Barkley race report is finally posted.  It's the longest race report I've ever written or hope to write.  I hope it's enjoyable, interesting, and entertaining.

Ultimate frisbee at work. Love this game. Even wore my soccer cleats from 10 years ago.

AM- I hadn't planned to. Run this morning, but both Jason and Justin wanted to go, so I joined in. 10.5 miles around home. Jason is moving into a neighborhood near mine, which will be nice

PM- ran a mud run with my wife and another couple. Had an absolute blast and was covered in mud. 3.5 miles, 30 obstacles, 53 min, and tons of fun. Muddiest I've ever been!
