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!

11 very, very slow but surprisingly difficult miles with Cody, 3 kids, and 2 jogging strollers.  Windy.  I am very, very, very tired.  Hoped to get 14 but didn't have more than 11 in me today.  This may be a very gradual comeback after almost 4 sick weeks and essentially 2 weeks off.  But I am trying to just get mileage more than I am worried about speed.

No run today. Last night's run exhausted me (I went to bed at 8:30), and I am still feeling it.  I am starting to suspect I might have something worse than just a cold/sinus infection.  I feel like I did when I had mono in college- I feel ok for a day or two, but then go for a run and it totally wipes me out for a few days.  If I don't feel much, much better by this weekend, I may go get a blood test.  Something is definitely not right and I don't like it.

5 easy miles with Cody and Paul.  Felt a lot better than Monday- hopefully I won't feel like crap tonight and will be able to run tomorrow.  8 min pace till the last mile when I had to pick it up to get home in time to watch the kid.

Cody and Logan were running Hollow Rd/Blacksmith Fork canyon.  I met them at about mile 12 of TOU, 5 miles into their run.  We ran to mile 7, then turned around and ran back.  Almost perfect temperature, and I started just far enough up the canyon to miss the strong headwind.  1:12 for 10 miles- I thought it was short of 10, but mapmyrun put it at 10.15.  Felt much, much better than Monday, though I could tell by the end that I was fatigued.  It was probably good I didn't try to do much more than 10 today.  I think I should be ready to ease back into 6 runs next week with moderate mileage.
