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!

World's steepest cog train up Mt. Pilatus. Unfortunately, it was cloudy and rainy at the top, though the clouds lifted for a few minutes for me to see one valley. On a good day, you can see much of the Alps from here, including the Eiger and Jungfrau. Did a fair bit of hiking then took the gondola down. Eventually took train into Zurich for more sightseeing, Ended up in Baden by the evening for work over the next few days.

AM- very early morning run in Baden, Switzerland. Fortunately, sunrise is 5:30 am. Found a nice trail that ended up being incredibly rocky and slow going, so only did it for less than a mile. The rest of the road was a combo of trails, gravel road, and tarmac. I think I did 60 minutes, about 6 miles.

AM- more Baden miles. 70 minutes today. Kept getting lost from my intended route and bailed out by my iPhone and my hand map. Also took some pictures. Never stopped the watch. Hilly, very hilly. I think I ran ran 7 or 8 miles.

AM- Another 5:30 am run, my longest yet. Found a delightful forest with lots of gravel roads and beautiful singletrack on a hill/mountain. Wonderful. Only saw a couple people the whole time. Looking at a map, I can take this network of trails unbroken almost to Zurich. It's been generally rainy the whole time, but still so much fun. 80 minutes, 8 or 9 miles. I found a big concrete bunker at the junction of two gravel roads- I can't envision it being anything other than a WWI or WWII bunker. Cool.

AM- I had been up almost 24 hours straight when I went to bed at 9 pm last night. Woke up at 1:40 am (7:40 am Swiss time) and never got back to bed. Worked, read, then went running sometime before 5 am. Dark and quiet, watched the sun rise. First mile was 7:30 and second was 7:00, and I never slowed down from there. I felt great, which was a surprise given all the Swiss food I ate and how little I slept the past week (4-5 hours per night, on average, sometimes only 1-2). Nice temps, though it will be warm the next week (high of upper 90's, low's around 70).
