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!

AM- GE track run. Nice weather. I felt good, so decided to do my second speed work of the year (other than the ultimate frisbee I play). I ran 3x1 track lap (.68 mile) with .5 lap recovery. Times were 4:24, 4:20, 4:17 (6:28-6:18). Nothing spectacular, but you gotta start somewhere. 8 miles total.

Lunch- good game of ultimate, though I dove several times on gumballs so am all scratched up.

I actually was able to sleep in till 6:30 am today. This is the first time I've slept past 5 am in a long while. 

PM- solo run at PM. Kind of warm. Felt ok, not great. Didn't see many people on the trail. Always great to get a trail run in. My last trail run ever with glasses, I hope. Lasik surgery on Thursday, then a week of no running, then a week in Switzerland.

Lunch- hot, and my shoes were made of concrete and my legs were filled with iron. In other words, slow and sluggish. Still ran for 75 min.
