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!

AM- 7

Lunch- 12 on a pretty warm day, the last while by myself.

Busy next few weeks- fly to Utah, run Logan Peak, drive to Idaho for a week, drive to Provo for another week, drive to Colorado to pace at the Hardrock 100, then fly home.  Wow.

Looks like I'm leaving SC at the right time.

Lunch- 4.5 ez.  Hot weather coming.  Definitely can't write what we were talking about during today's run.  Looking forward to some cooler, non-humid weather the next few weeks.  My car thermometer said 101 deg F today on the way home from work.

Went to the airport to fly to SLC, then run Logan Peak trail run tomorrow... except my flight was cancelled.  They rebooked me to arrive Saturday night at 11 pm, which obviously means I will miss my race tomorrow.  This sucks.  A power outage at Chicago stopped a lot of planes from flying out last night.  Anyways, I guess I have it better than some people, like a couple near me whose son is getting married tonight.  And the people next to me in the hour-long rebooking line are aspiring ultra runners, so we had fun talking.  

I guess I now have 2 open days to head to the mountains of South Carolina.  Not where I wanted to be, but better than nothing.  Of course, the record highs of 105 expected this weekend are going to make these runs very sweaty.  Bring it on.

AM- Full report will come later- I'm very busy with family stuff now in Idaho.  But, I made the race thanks to Dale buying me a plane ticket (Dale is awesome), although only had 3 hrs of sleep the night before.  I'll give details later, but finished 3rd.  Fun, fun day.  Been at the in-laws ever since.

The local Herald Journal did a great article on the race, including talking about Dale's generosity and how 4 of us broke the old CR, lead by Seth Wold.

Full race report and story of Dale is now posted, 5 months later.
