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!

No official run, but went to a church picnic and played a bunch of volleyball and ultimate.  Definitely some running there.  Soreness isn't too bad, so I'll try a run tomorrow.

PM- Paris Mtn with Justin.  He's just starting again after FHT and I'm post-race, so we did some upper loop miles.  65 min, so I'm calling it 6.5 miles.  Not too hot, and good to get caught up, plus Justin gave me all the borrowed clothes.  Not that I'll be needing warm gloves, pants, and shirts for a while.  Bumped into a bunch of runners after in the parking lot so we chatted for a while.  Runners are such nice people.

2 pm run with Brandon for 50 min and Jim for a full 1:22.  Pretty warm out today.  Ran the lake neighborhood loop then to Sams Club.  Feeling pretty good, though my ankle is still painful as is my bruised rib (ouch- that one is a first for me).  I'm not sure what I'd do if I didn't have any niggles- maybe doubt if I was still alive.

Lunch- ran some with the guys. Ankle hurt real bad. Stopped early to xt rather than hurt more. What a pain.

Ankle hurts like H-E-See-Kay, so I didn't even try running.  Xt instead.  This is getting frustrating- I might have to shut it down for a while, maybe even before my 14k in June.

I do find it interesting that I don't feel like I ran much this month and don't feel in A shape, yet still ran 341 miles, my second highest May ever.  Most years, I was 200-300.  Shows how much my mileage has increased and my mileage has changed the past 3-4 years.
