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- Interesting day. Enjoyed watching the marathon and cheering for a work buddy who ran a strong 2:37, with very consistent split.

My foot has finally started to hurt less to the point that I decided to try a run today. I was very busy all day but finally was ready to head to the gym about 4 pm... just when a tornado warning sounded and we all had to go to shelter. Fortunately, the gym is one of the storm shelters, so I grabbed my bag and ran on the treadmill while 200 people lounged about. I did 6 miles with minimal pain, though we'll see how it feels tomorrow. I'm doubtful I'll run Promise Land this weekend, though. If I don't, it will be 4 straight races I register for and then DNS due to injuries since Sept (Grindstone 100, JFK 50, Georgia Death Race). Still going to the doc tomorrow to check it out, though.

Lunch- ran 6 miles, felt ok. Then went to doctor's office. X-rays showed nothing, he thinks I just have some tendon inflamation of the Henry's Knot. I'm feeling much better but just have a bad feeling that trying to run 33 miles this weekend will overdo it and aggravate the foot. So, as much as I really wanted to do Promise Land, I'm planning to DNS. Bummer. That is 4 straight races I have DNS, and I will go into Western not having raced in over 10 months. Huh.

PM- 10. Foot felt pretty good. I still haven't officially withdrawn from the race this weekend. I probably could do it but shouldn't for the sake of Western States health. Tough choice.

Lunch- 8.5 with the guys.

Officially withdrew from Promise Land today. That's 4 straight DNS. Hopefully this pays off with being healthier at Western.

Lunch- 8 on a beautiful day

Then went camping after work with my 2 eldest daughters and went on a 2-3 mile hike with a bunch of running thrown in. The camping was great, with steady rain all morning that didn't stop us from another hour long hike, followed by a breakfast at Stax Original diner. Good morning.
