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- PM with Barry and Seth. It rained all day but let up mid afternoon so we were muddy and humid, but dry (other than sweat). I was really dragging today. We did the short loop, only 8 miles. Still took almost 90 min.

AM- 10. It rained pretty hard last night but stopped before dawn. I ran 10 somewhat slow miles on GE track. No other runners on the track, just a bunch of canadian geese with their goslings. Some of the parents are pretty aggressive so I have to reroute.

AM 10 in 74 minutes. Cool but humid (60 deg, 95% humidity)

My home computer died last night. Refused to start windows. Reimaged drive, now having to fix everything. The good news is that I have an external hard drive that I had not backed up to for a year, but did just last week.

My last 5 weeks have all been 57-60 miles. Pretty consistent. One of these days I'll slowly start upping that up to 70 miles, mainly by adding to my Saturday run. Hopefully that little boost in mileage will help the 10 extra pounds I'm carrying to start coming off.
