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- I probably should have started this a week earlier, but I started my heat training today. On the warmest day of the year (record high of 91 deg), I ran at lunch with a t-shirt, a black long sleeve, and another long sleeve. Wowzers was it hot!!! That was pretty miserable. Ran a full 10 miles. On the drive home after work, I turned on the heat as high as it would go, cranked the fan, and even put the air on recirculate. By the time I got home, I was drenched in sweat and could not take my keys out of the ignition cause they were so hot. I'm honestly guessing they were 140 deg or higher. Remind me to never do Badwater.

Lunch- it was a bit hotter today and I wore even more warm clothes, but was better hydrated and was not as uncomfortable than yesterday. Still hot, though. I don't normally suggest wearing a fleece top, a long tech top, and a t-shirt in 83 deg temps. Anyways, ran 7 miles and then did a bit of xt.

PM- Paris Mtn with Merle, first time we'd run together in a long time. He had already run an hour before and it was high 80's temp, so the pace was pretty easy. Usual route, 10.5 miles.

Lunch- 8 miles somewhat slow. Mid-80's. Only wanted 7 but Jim's back and talked me into an extra mile.

Evening- How come all the adventures with kids only happen when their mom is out with her friends?

Lunch- ran with everyone to the lake, then Jim and I did 2 faster miles (5:40-ish pace, which actually felt real easy- we were even talking back and forth some- I guess that's what a taper will do for you) with Bart tagging along for one lap. 6 total miles, maybe a bit more. But I'll round down.

Going to a church Father-Son campout tonight. It will be Zach's first, and I'm excited. We'll see how he does.
