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

PM- Paris Mtn.  Justin joined me for the first 3 miles, recounting his first ultra last week.  Then I was on my own for the rest of the way.  Felt good for about 10 miles, then just tired.  Didn't eat enough, and it was the end of a 23 mile day.  Even took a digger.  Hot and tired run, but trails are always nice.  14 miles in 2:10 with 2300 ft climbing. 

Heading to Savannah, GA tomorrow for a nice little weekend trip.  Should be fun.

AM- 10 mile run in Savannah.  Found a nice, deserted road with swamp/forest on both sides.  Did the last 4 miles quite a bit quicker than the rest.  Felt good.  Then spent the day around Historic Savannah and the Tybee beach.
