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!

10 miles today- from my house along the TOU course for 3 miles.  Then through the island and along the canal.  Then turn around and back home.  5 miles at 7:15 pace or so, then back at just under 7:00 pace.  Fly to Alabama tomorrow for a business trip.

New shoes- Omni 5- 10 miles

By the way, congrats to the Boston finishers.  Nice job in less than ideal conditions.

10 miles in Monte Sano state park, Huntsville, AL.  Nice trail run, with a surprising amount of hills.  It is rockier and root-ier than most my runs in Utah- it made me worried about twisting an ankle once it was getting dark.  I ran out of light before I got enough miles, so I drove back to my hotel and finished off with 3 miles on the treadmill in 22 minutes.  I really enjoy running in that state park.  While I agree with Paul that travelling makes getting in runs very difficult, I enjoy finding new locations to run.  My coworkers think I am weird because I always skip the steak dinners with them and go on my run, grabbing a sandwich later.  The weather here is nice (low 70's), but running here in the summer is also a pain due to the heat.  But it is fun to find nice trails and go exploring in new areas.

806- 224 miles.

I only had time for 2.5 miles late at night- the workout facility in the hotel closed at 10 pm and I didn't want to go running outside at night in Huntsville.  But at least I got a run in.

I got up early to fly back to Utah.  I arrived back in Logan at 6:30 pm and immediately drove to Stokes parking lot.  I did a 7.5 mile run.  My legs were very sore and sluggish (not surprising since I had been sitting all day in an airplane), but my times were actually decent.  I felt much better by the end of the run.  I had hoped to do 10-12 miles, but it was getting dark and I figured I should head home since my wife was expecting me around 6 pm.  I don't think I will make my 60 mile goal for the week, but that isn't surprising since I was travelling and working long hours.

806- 234 miles
