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!

Well, I'm back.  Took the rest of the week off to rest my strange calf/shin issue, which I think was caused by 1000 miles of driving (aka pushing the gas pedal) combined with a hard day running.  We'll find out if it's better.

In the meantime, back to the wonderful SC weather.  It is 76 deg with 94% humidity at 7 am this morning, with a predicted high of a humid 95 today.  And it appears tomorrow will be my first ever 100 deg day here- should be wonderful.  At least I can run in the cool, 78 deg weather tomorrow morning...  Eat your heart out, Logan.

Lunch- 10 with the guys on one of the hotter, more humid runs of my life.  Hot.  Leg felt pretty good- as good as I hoped.

 Yeehaw.  I'm not sure which I enjoyed more- the 101 high, the 77 low, the Feels Like of 110, or the humidity.  We'll call it a tie. 

AM- 10 with Jim, Jason, and Dan.  All I can say is shoes should not be squishy wet from sweat during 6 am runs.

Lunch- 6 with Aaron.  Hot- see below.  Then 4 on the treadmill.  Didn't want to run by myself in this weather.

AM- 5 run with Jim, 5 xt.

PM- Paris Mountain with Barry in the heat, heat, heat.  I carried 2 bottles for our 90 min run.  Lots of good talking- fun to run with him.  He's heading to Alaska for a while next month- sounds awesome.  Finished with 10 miles and 1300 ft climb in 92 min.  Shin is fine, but Achilles on other foot has sore spot.  Hmm.  Definitely finally retiring my Pace 2 shoes- at 565 miles, my highest mileage pair ever.  By about 40 miles.

Long day at work, no run.  Which I wasn't planning to do anyways, since my Achilles really hurts.  My Achilles pain last year was general tightness- this time it is very localized pain on the tendon, indicating the start of tendinitis (possibly).  Head it off at the pass.

Lunch- a bunch of crosstraining.  A stormy, cold front moved in, with a low today of mid-60's and a high of 68 with rain off and on all day.  The high today is lower than any of the previous lows the past 9 days, and is 10 degrees colder than the low on Wed (79 deg).  It figures I'm stuck inside just as it finally gets bearable to run outside!
