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!

Planetwalk- 4 easy miles with the stroller at ~8:45-9:00 pace.  I could feel every muscle fiber in both quads with every step and felt the normal sensation in my knee, but felt fine other than that.  No post-marathon runner's asthma, either. 

Tomorrow I am scheduled to get my first-ever real massage, and even signed up for 2 hours!  It should be painfully wonderful.

6 easy miles on a beautiful morning with a brilliant full moon lighting the way.  Ran 13 holes on the golf course.

In some sad news, my beloved port-o-potty is gone.  It was about a mile from my house and very convenient to use on many of my routes, which I did many, many times over the past 7 months.  Now the construction is complete and it is gone.  Farewell, old friend, you will be missed.

8 miles with Cody on the river trail.  I hadn't been on it for a long time- it was wonderful.  Overcast and drizzling, 50 deg, only a few other people on the whole trail.  The leaves are really coming out and the Logan river is full.  Good run, almost no soreness now.  The massage yesterday helped my quads a lot.  65 min.

Didn't sleep well again because of a sick, screaming kid.  Decided to skip my 4 am run to get some extra sleep.  I should have just gotten up and gone running, cause she kept me up that whole hour anyways.  Oh well, at least it is Friday.  And it is a 3 day weekend.

Cody picked me up this morning and had a surprise guest- Walter!  He is in town for the holiday and joined us.  We drove to Millville Canyon and ran the very hilly deer fence trail to Dry Canyon, then back almost to Blacksmith Fork.  About 900 ft elevation gain and 900 loss.  Very nice to run on a dirt road/trail the whole time and it wasn't even too muddy from all the rain.  Lots of cows and cow pies, though.  Nice cool temperature.  Pretty easy pace, plus the hills made for slow going.  13.25 miles, 1:53:05, 8:30 avg.
