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!

Lunch- big group of 12 guys. I did 6 miles and felt terrible. It was good to be running again.

Hey SLC runners- I'll be getting a ride to SLC with Cody the evening of July 13 and flying out July 14 at noon. I have a cousin near the airport, but was thinking it was worth asking if anyone is interested in putting me up and taking me on a little trail run that Monday morning before I go to the airport (I won't have a car so would need a ride if I don't stay at my cousin's house). Anyone available and interested? I figured a chance to crash with FRBers and trail run in SLC should never be missed.

No run- went to a party at my first grader's school instead, where I proceeded to accidentally dislocate my 16 month old's elbow when I picked her up. Fortunately, it went back in after 20 minutes, just before we were going to the doctor.

Lunch- 8 miles on a humid day in the high 80's. Hot. Legs felt pretty darn tired, though a bit better than Monday. I have a month to get myself in shape before heading to Colorado to run the Hardrock 100 course and then maybe crew or pace during the race.

AM- Working noon till 2 am tonight, so slept in a bit today then took an easy morning run. Well, it was supposed to be easy, but instead it was slow and super hard/painful. I couldn't have run an 8 min mile if my life depended on it today.

Lunch- 9.5 miles with the guys. Felt pretty crappy until the 1 hour mark, when we started discussing inflation and the fed. That gets me fired up, ranting, so we picked up the pace and I forgot about feeling tired.

AM- 10.

My mileage this week was right where I wanted it to be. I would like to steadily increase 20 mpw for 3 weeks, then have a bit of an easy week before the Hardrock week, where I expect to run 100-150 miles in the San Juan mtns, which would be a doozy of a week.
