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!

Good recovery run today.  I am fighting a cold, plus it is 45 degrees and raining outside, so at the start of my run I decided to do 4 miles instead of the originally planned 8.  As the run went on, though, I felt great, so just kept chugging along.  8 miles, 3 times along the logan riverwalk trail plus to and from home.  Started at 7:35 pace, finished closer to 7:15 pace, with a little surge to the finish line.  Total time: 59:26.

12 medium miles- from my house, up to dry canyon, along deer fence, past providence canyon, and about half way to Millville.  12 miles total, 90 minutes.  My right knee has been twinging for a while and it is starting to hurt more.  Hopefully I can figure out what it is and fix it.

1 mile with the wife and kid, then met Paul and Ben at the Stokes trailhead.  We ran up the river trail, taking the high singletrack route to spring hollow.  More hills than I had planned on (well, actually, it was only 1 hill, but probably 1 or 1.5 miles long), but I felt ok.  Back down to third dam, the on the river trail.  9.5 miles (more or less) in 77 minutes.  It was good to see Ben and hear how he was enjoying DC.  Oh, and if Paul tells you that you are almost at the top of the hill, don't believe him.

Long run today from Paul's house up the canyon to Guinavah Malibu and back.  Ran with Paul, James, Cody, Dan, and Mark (though I think I called him Matt).  Nice run.  I felt 100 times better than I did on my long run last week.  We weren't going to fast for most of it (8:00 pace or so) and it was very nice to be on trail.  We started picking it up once we hit the canyon road, sub 7:30 pace or so the rest of the way (last 4 miles or so).  The last mile was real fast, 6:06 Cody said, but I still felt great.  It gets me excited for this season.  Just have to keep training.  60-62 miles next week.  I plan to go up 5-7 miles per week till mid 70's, then start evening out and adding some speedwork.  Plan to do most of my summer at 75-90 mile weeks.

Total time 2:29:33
