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!

Let's see if I can stay healthy and get in a solid 5 weeks of training before Western. Started off the week with XT in the morning and a hot lunch run (80's and humid) of 10 miles. Felt good.

PM- Went to PM on a hot day (mid-80's, humid). Ran the first part with Barry and Seth, then did Kanuga reps. Hard down, easy up. Down were 8:30, 8:21, and 7:52 (fastest timed lap ever). Then Aaron showed up and we ran the rest of the way together. Finished with 14.5 miles and 2000 ft climb in just under 2:30.

Evening run 20 in the mountains. Worked all day then drove to Rocky Bottom. Ran 3 miles towards LV then turned onto a dirt road I had seen lots of strava foot traffic on. 7 miles later, it rejoined the FHT. I ran to Laurel Fork Falls, then back on FHT till the same road, went the other way for some exploring. Ended up finishing just before sundown with 3400 ft climbing in 2:45 or 2:50 and 20.5 miles. Only saw 4 people on the trail the entire time.
