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- 6.5 ez.  Hammy was tight and definitely felt sluggish everywhere, but no other pains.  Finished up with some good weightlifting to try and improve my bench press strength.  Get swoll or die trying.

Lunch- 2 miles running, 30 min yoga, 15 min abs.  Arms sore from lifting yesterday.

PM- PM with Nick, Barry, and Justin.  Felt much better than expected.  Slow pace, 11 miles on a nice day in 1:53.

Lunch- a quick 6 by myself on the track.  One guy just left my group and I took over all his work, so I'm very busy now.

Last day of my reverse Umstead taper.  Ended up not running.  It was glorious to sleep in and lounge around all morning.  In the afternoon we cheered Marci running the Mud Run.  They did awesome.
