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- PM solo. Rather than doing lots of Kanuga repeats, I did 1 kanuga, 1 pipsesewa, and 1 sulphur springs loop. Got soaking wet when a brief but strong thunderstorm moved through. Finished with 16 miles and 2200 ft in 2:40. Then went to the gym and spent an hour in the 190 deg sauna. So much sweat. Marci and all the kids were asleep by the time I got home, and they will be again tomorrow since I won't get home till 10:30 or so from Young Mens.

Lunch- 10 run. Started off very slow and painful the first 2 miles, which was to be expected. But by mile 2 or 3, I actually started feeling fine and even pushed the pace a bit the rest of the way. Good run. Not too hot, either, which helps.

AM- Scrubbed the mtn run on account of so much to do before we leave in 2 weeks. Typical Georgia Rd run, 21 miles in 2:34 or so. 1300 ft climb and 7:22 avg pace. Felt good, if a bit tired at the end. I think this is my highest running week in 3 months. I still don't feel like I'm in good shape, and I'm not happy I haven't had a long run of over 4.5 hrs or 23 miles, but, barring injury, I feel more confident in Western States than I have since December.
