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- 6 easy after work in 90 deg heat, though only a bit humid.  Didn't feel too bad, actually- I think I've acclimated quite a bit, plus I've never been a big sweater. 45 min.

AM- With only 11 days till my 100, I'm in full taper mode.  Yet I somehow ran over 3 hrs and 22 miles today.  Huh.  Did a baby workout with Dan this morning on the GE track.  70 deg at 5:45 am- yup, summer is here.  2 warmup, increasing tempo for 4 miles (start 6:25, finish 5:53 mile), then 3 cooldown.  9 miles, 1:04.

PM- Paris Mtn with Barry.  93 deg when we started.  Yup, summer is here.  Heat actually didn't feel too bad till the last 30 min, when we were both dragging.  And I had 4 stops for some reason.  13 miles on the mountain in 1:57:30 with 1600 ft climbing.  Always fun to run on the trails.  And my tiredness at the end was nothing some 5 Guys burgers and fries couldn't fix.  Really enjoyed the ride home- windows down (no a/c in the car), 88 deg, singing to some music, munching on fries, just cruising along.  Nice evening.

No more runs of >1 hr until OD 100. 

And admit it- all you folks in Utah with your 75 degrees temps are jealous of this...

AM- 7 with Jason on the GE track.  Worked a half day today, then spent the afternoon in a very, very enjoyable team building activity- paintball.  Tons of fun, and all of us have got the bruises to prove it.

Spent a bit too much time on Kevin Sayer's site today.  The best is the ultrarunner jokes- I can relate to far too many of them. http://www.ultrunr.com/youknow.html

PM- easy 4 in the heat of the day.
