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!

PM- Had a lunch meeting so didn't go to the gym for a run till 2:30 pm.  Consequentally, I was on a treadmill watching 5 tv's when the news started coming in about Boston.  Didn't seem real at first.  What a simply tragic event.  So sad.  Violence is never the answer.

Lunch- 6 miles with the guys

PM- 10 miles at Paris Mtn. Almost 80 deg, so warm and sweaty. 5 of us out there, 3 even went for a swim midrun. Nice to get in a PM run, first in a month.

PM- mid-afternoon run due to my training during lunch.  I can tell my two weeks off has affected me- I was pooped right from the start today, and it never got better.  80 deg temps didn't help.  At least it was on the dirt trails behind GE.  I saw 2 deer, a turkey, and a snapping turtle the size of a dinner plate... and almost no people.  That was nice.  9 miles.

Some good thoughts on Boston from a runner...

Lunch- Todd led us to a new little trail he found in Devenger neighborhood.  Always nice to be on some dirt.  9 miles in all.  Felt a lot better than yesterday, but still sluggish.
