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 set up the 2 mile race course for scout camp, then ran. We had 2 leaders about about 8 boys, plus me. One of the boys hung on for the first mile, then dropped off. I won, so no one collected on my promised reward of eating first for beating me.

AM- ran from scout camp up the Mt Mitchell trail to meet the YM high adventure group finishing their 3 day backpacking trip. Passed all of them, kept going up, then passed most of them again on the way down. 8.2 miles, 2 hours. The trail is pretty dang technical for much of the distance. It gained 2700 ft in 4 miles, which is probably more vertical than I've had in a month since Western. My quads were sore by halfway down but held out ok till the end. Sore for a number of days afterwards. If I start doing trail races again, I'll definitely have to toughen them up. Good trail, I miss trails.

4 miles river trail loop before leaving scout camp. Great trail, lots of fun- it was on the NC Mountains to Sea trail for a bit. Makes me miss running in the mountains so much. I wish I lived right next to some trails, if would definitely reinvigorate my running.
