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!

Lunch- 2nd half of the year is here, so it must be time to get back to work. 8 miles with the guys, then 2 miles on the trails. Rained a while, then was just humid but not too hot. What a rainy spring/summer.

PM- Paris Mtn on a relatively cool but humid evening after some thunderstorms.  Usual loop of 10 miles in 1:43 with Merle and Jason.  As surprisingly good as I felt yesterday after my rest week, I felt equally as bad today.  Just slow and tired- got dropped several times.  Oh well.

No run. Instead, spent 16 hrs traveling, including 9 hrs on airplanes with 4 kids, 2 of them lap children, to reach Oregon. The kids were actually well behaved. It's kind of fun to have your 22 month boy sit on your lap for 8 hours. Needless to say, we didn't watch any fireworks.

Am- 13 mile run in 1:41. Headed west from West Salem into some beautiful, very hilly farm country full of Christmas trees, blueberries, and wineries. And I didn't miss the heat or humidity at all. 1600 ft climbing.

AM- 21 miles on the very hilly roads around Salem. 4 or so miles dirt road, the rest pavement. Felt super sluggish and terrible the first 2 hrs but then felt much better the last hour. Probably started at 9 min pace but had some sub 7 and even sub 6 sections by the end. Milked 1 gu and 1 bottle for the entire run. 2500 ft climbing (like I said, hilly) in 2:50 or so. It's nice to feel good at the end of a run.
