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- In Tooele.  Woke up at 8 after 8 hours of sleep, threw on my road shoes and grabbed a bottle, and went for whatever run struck my fancy.  Wasn't planning on trails, but 2 miles in neighborhoods found me looking up at ATV trails in the mountains above.  Ventured up and down some steep trails, then found myself on the East Fork Trails in the mountains.  I hadn't charged my garmin from HR yet, but ended up with about a 2 hour run.  Guesstimate 14 miles and 2500 ft climbing- not bad.  Felt tired but was able to move very well on everything except the steepest climbs.  Saw 5 or more deer, turkey, etc.  

PM- Drove out to some trails only to be chased home by a nasty, nasty thunderstorm.  Almost continual lightning convinced me that the run wasn't worth the danger after only 3 miles.

Long day travelling last night, finally got to bed well after midnight.  Up early for work, and got my run in with Phil and Jason after work.  9-ish miles on new test shoes.

AM- Way too tired for my BW, so slept an extra 45 min and death slogged 6 miles.  I think my first mile was 9:30 or something, and I didn't speed up much from there.

PM- 4.5+5.5.  Felt a tiny bit better than this morning.

AM- Justin and I ran from Rocky Bottom up to Mt Sassafras (highest point in SC), a few miles past, then back to the car.  Then we ran up Sassafras again.  Yup, we aren't too bright.  Justin was pretty beat by the end, but I started feeling real good the last couple hours- I actually ran the 4 miles down from the mtn 10 minutes faster the second time than the first.  22 miles, 4:38 with 6500 feet climbing.

I ran 32 miles Mon-Wed, then finished Thu-Sat with 60 more.  So I ended up with decent mileage.  Very high mileage next week with the Camp Croft marathon Saturday as a training run before starting my taper for Waldo 100k a few weeks later.

Looks like the UROC keeps getting better for this year- Nick Clark just signed on.  Almost makes me wish I was doing it.  But Waldo in Aug, StumpJump 50k in Oct, and TNF 50 in Dec is plenty for me.
