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- Pouring rain and 45 deg out led to a TM BW. 3 miles warmup, 10 miles tempo slowly increasing pace in 60:30, 1 mile cooldown. Sweaty, lots of grunting. 14 miles in 90 min.

Lunch- very rainy, chilly run with the guys at lunch. Forgot bandaids, so actually had to take off my shirt when I started getting some bad nippage. I had arm warmers, though- so arm warmers and no shirt. My knee, which hasn't hurt since last Tuesday, really started hurting again. Bummer. And my calves and Achilles. Looks like I did a bit too much this morning. 6.5 miles run, then a bit of eliptical.

Lunch 10. Knee is improving, Achilles hurt. Not so much that I didn't do. A full run, though. No speed work for a while.

Lunch- 10. Went into the hilly Huntington neighborhood for the first time in a couple of years. Finished with a mile on trails. Not much else to say.

Lunch- Right at the start, Paul saw the turkey abotu 30 yards away from the track, the closest I've ever seen him. He puffed up and strutted around, but didn't chase us. Paul agreed with me that he is a huge turkey, puffed up or not. Once Aaron and Rob showed up, we decided to chase him to put some fear of humans back in him, but he quickly disappeared into the woods. Jason, Paul and I ran to Sam's club, then Jason and I ran to the tunnel. Then I did some xt. 9.5 miles run, 26 min xt (1:38 total).

AM- Perfect morning for a run, 50 deg. Met Jason and we ran around the Georgia Rd area at a descent clip over hilly roads. Saw 4 runners, 0 bikers. Ran 19 miles in 2:15 with 1200 ft climbing. Felt good, lots of 6:45-7 min miles. Avg HR 139 (rare for me to wear the monitor). Lots of people in SC own big dogs.

Barry and I are working the aid station this evening at the Blind Pig 100, the first 100 miler ever in SC. Should be fun. It's a loop course, 11 loops, so we'll see lots of runners.

I'm pleased with how this week turned out. I wanted 100+ miles, but my knee was achy enough on Monday that I scratched the remaining doubles. To still get 80+ miles on singles is acceptable.
