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!

My Old Dominion 100 race report is finally posted.

Lunch- 12 with the guys on a very hot, humid day.  Some of the guys were even veering back and forth across the road just to find some shade.  Jim ran the last 30 min with me- it was nice to have company.

AM- BW.  Wanted 8-10 tempo.  Felt like crap during my 4 mile warmup (body is very tired and not sleeping enough), but the workout actually felt decent for a while.  By mile 5, though, I knew I would struggle to finish.  Took a break at 6.5 to get a drink since I seemed to be overexerting myself, but still finished ok.  Most I have ever sweat during a morning run- just dripping the whole time (that's what 90% humidity will do).  Finished with 14.5 miles in 1:40:34 including 8 tempo miles in 48:30 (all between 6:01-6:05).

Lunch- another warm, humid day.  And was reminded that 3 hrs is not long enough to recover from a BW.  Sluggish and tired the first 2-3 miles, then felt better.  Ran 8, then xt 4.  12 total.

I don't often do 26.5 miles in training.  Today reminded me why- cause it's dang tiring!

AM- 7.  Legs are sore from mileage.

Lunch- 9 running on the trails behind GE, then 4 xt.  Leaving for a week in Missouri tomorrow at Marci's aunts/uncles, and just found out they don't even have internet.  I'm hoping they have electricity, but not sure... 

I think this is my highest ever Mon-Thur training mileage.  Not bad.  Shorter the rest of the week.  Next week will be a challenge to get in my mileage due to the busy vacation.  We'll find a way.

AM- 8.5 on the trails of Cumberland Mtn State Park in Crossville, TN.  Generally nice, although 3 or so miles were way too overgrown and thorny.  If I don't get poison ivy, it is only because I am among the 20% of people who aren't allergic, because I ran through literally miles of the stuff.  Saw 1 deer, 0 people.  Nice way to start the day- now 8 hrs driving.  1:17, 8.5 miles.
