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- Didn't get out for my lunch run till 3 pm.  These mid-afternoon runs are tough as I'm tired from my day at work and haven't eaten much.  But I've pretty much figured out the first 30 min feel terrible, then I start feeling better.  Today was that way, too.  Did 11 or so miles on the mud behind GE (a weekend of steady rain left everything very sloppy and added to the enjoyment).  Good times.  Tired legs are to be expected since I'm trying to force my body back into shape and have a lingering cold.

Lunch- 6.5 run, then some bike.  Great weather.

PM- PM with Barry, Aaron, and Carl.  Wore another of the new Pearl Izumi shoes, this time the Trail N2.  Great shoes.  And I got them appropriately muddy to break them in.  10 miles, 1:40-something, 1300 ft climb.

AM- 8 miles on a misty, foggy, wet morning.  Felt pretty good, much better than yesterday morning.  I'm trying to pack in the miles Mon-Fri this week because I'm taking my 2 daughters to crew Justin on the 77 mile Foothills Trail this weekend.  He starts running at 3 am, we crew him starting at 5:30 am, and will go at least for 18-20 hrs, and maybe 24+ hrs.  It should be fun but, needless to say, I won't get in any runs.

Lunch- 10 with the guys.  Heard about Dan's 5 min PR marathon of 2:43 last weekend in Ohio.  Rainy still.

Lunch- 8 on another wet day.

Heading out now for a day or two in the mountains with my daughters, crewing Justin on the 77 mile Foothills Trail.  They just put out a flood warning for tomorrow due to expected heavy rains- that should make it fun (especially the trail portion along the known-to-flood Chatooga river).  Justin is going to do great.

Slept 1 hr, then crewed Justin on the FHT as he completed his epic adventure till midnight. Home at 1:30 am, tired. Epic rainstorm with cold and 4-6 inches in 2 days, but Justin still finished. It was a fun, tiring weekend with my daughters watching Justin's toughness. Some hiking, a bit of running, too.
