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- 9.5 around the lake and the bamboo forest run.  Calves were a bit sore after this run- longest run in Altras by 30 min.

Looks like the expected carnage at Boston.  Fun times.  Shadley seemed to have a great race, though.

Lunch- 5 with Jim discussing Boston marathon.

PM- PM with the guys.  Talked the normal stuff- food, government rants by me (surprise), and Justin's upcoming 50k, his first-ever marathon or longer event.  While running across the dam at North Lake, Justin just threw down his bottle and jumped in.  Barry followed.  I did too, eventually.  Water was surprisingly nice.  12.2 miles in 2:12 with 1500 ft climb.  Ordered pizza on the run and he arrived a few minutes before we did- oops.

Lunch- warmed up 2 miles, then tried the pump and run.  I have felt increasingly crappy all week due to big bump in mileage and not enough sleep but was still hoping to run a sub-17 time (Jim did 15:45 on Wed- yes, treadmill is a bit faster).  Managed 10 bench reps (an improvement from my 6 reps two weeks ago, but still tied for the lowest), then started the run.  Felt ok at 11 mph for about 1/2 mile, then just felt bad to worse.  Finished in 18:44.  Blah.  Not a great showing- my speed is very slow to come back after a 100, that's for sure.  2 xt after.

AM- The month of Marci continued with her 1/2 marathon.  After seeing the play Les Mis last night, we only got 4.5 hrs sleep prior to wakeup.  She ran great, beating her goal.  Zach and I ran 7.5 miles cheering for her.  Nice job, babe!

Was supposed to run more with Eric Grossman, but he had a change of plans.  Probably a good thing- my right foot started hurting yesterday- feels similar to the beginning of a stress fracture.  Probably from increase in miles plus no sleep.  Rest- might even take a few days off next week if necessary.
