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- Most comfortable running weather in months, thanks to cool nights in Idaho Falls.  But egads, are my legs sore- that's a good thing, though, to toughen me up for Waldo.  Ran an hour around Community park, but couldn't run at all down even the smallest hills thanks to very sore quads and calves.  Ouch.

AM- 12 to Community Park and then dirt roads along canals.  Tired and thirsty, but moving a lot better than yesterday.  Could run downhill now, though still painfully.  I imagine I'll be a lot better in the next day or two.

AM- 2 hrs around Idaho Falls- first cheering for my niece and nephew who were doing the local 5k, as well as Shadley, who I think placed 7th overall.  Then a few miles by the river.  16-ish miles total.  Soreness is going away but not gone.

PM- ~5 more, half with Marci, then by myself.  Now going to the always excellent IF fireworks display.

AM- Didn't get home from the fireworks till after midnight, then up before 5 am to meet Jeff.  Nice 1 hr run around the river.  We had 2 years of catching up to do.  Then I ran down the canal near his house for a few miles before coming to an abrupt stop due to a run in with a skunk.  Thankfully I saw him first and had backed up 15 or 20 feet before he noticed me and assumed a defensive posture.  Turned around at that point and wound my way back to the car.  Just under 2 hrs, 15 miles, and home by 7 am.  Thanks, Jeff.

PM- 6 more.  Only 65 deg and rainy today, so nice for running.  Soreness is gone.

AM- Met Jeff again at 5 am, running about an hour with him around the river. Then I went back to the river, adding on till I had 20 miles in about 2:38. It was a cool but nice 50 deg out. The first week or two after an ultra I can run ok for about 90 min, but slow down quite a bit on runs longer than that.
