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- ran 10.5 miles with some of the guys.  Gorgeous, mid-60's, and sunny weather.  Unfortunately, sick kids and lack of sleep appear to have caught up with me.  I've been feeling a bit under the weather but found myself absolutely drained after the run and haven't felt better since.  I think I have a fever, plus a cough, runny nose, sore throat, etc.  Blah.  Going to bed now.  I'm finally ready to get back to real training now, after almost 2 months of pretty low mileage, so would really like to get well and get running.

AM- feeling substantially better today, which is good because I have a test I am running 2nd shift at work, so have to go in no matter what.  Got another good night sleep, then went for a nice morning run wearing some demo Smartwool compression socks and some new Hokas.  The hokas are probably a half size too big, but that's how I'm buying my shoes these days- tired of too-small shoes.  Plus my foot felt like it had a bruise near the arch so I wanted the extra cushion.

Officially withdrew from MMT 100 today.  Not in any kind of shape to run it, and was only staying on the wait list to increase my lottery chances next year.

AM- 6 ez this morning.  Beautiful weather this time of year, esp for morning runs.

Lunch- and the weather is also beautiful for lunch runs.  Just gorgeous.  10 miles with the guys- 6 of us at the start, I think, just Jim at the end. 

Unlike in Utah where Hokas are everywhere (**cough cough Karl cough**), I have only seen one other wearer here.  I sure get comments on them.

AM- Dupont with Justin and Aaron.  Upper 40's at the start, low 50's at the finish, and overcast with threatening rain.  Rain must have kept everyone home cause I only saw 4 bikers and no one else the entire time.  Did 12 miles with the guys, then they went home while I did a while more by myself.  Given my sickness and out of shapeness and purposeful lack of calories, I knew it would be a slog.  It was.  What I didn't expect was my left ankle to seriously hurt on every single step.  It was quite painful, even though I can't recall twisting it and it's not swollen or anything.  Will monitor that.  Got the run done, though.  20.5 miles, under 3.5 hrs, 2500 ft climb.
