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 13.5 around home. Ran into Jason F so did 6 miles with him. Now Marci and I are heading to Columbia for Stake temple day while a kind ward member watches our four kids for seven hours.

AM- Icar run, with a bit of faster stuff. Wasn't actually too fast- haven't looked at splits, but ran generally 6-7 min pace over hilly terrain for 8 miles. 12 total.

PM- 8, the last bit with Rob.

Today was one of the strangest occurances on a run in my life. I slept in 30 min rather than run, and I heard it start raining at 6 am. By 8 am, they were issuing flash flood notices as we had 3 inches of rain with 1-2 additional inches coming per hour. It let up by noon, when Aaron, Jim and I went running.

We did the normal Oak Grove. However, we saw something strange walking in the middle of the road. As we approached, we discovered it was a lobster. Not a crawdad or anything, a full-up lobster, probably 8 inches long walking down the road. We looked at it, tried to get it out of the road (it wouldn't grab our stick), then kept going. 30 yards further on, there was another lobster in the road. What in the world? How are there two lobsters walking down the road in the middle of South Carolina? Easily on my top 10 list for strangest things I've ever seen on a run. So strange, unexpected. Ran 7 drizzly miles, then xt.

Am. Raing still so stayed in. 4 miles ez, 6 miles in 38:40, then 1 mile cool down. That is all

Lunch. Rain finally stopped. 9 with Jim, Aaron, and rob. Sadly, we saw 2 very squished lobsters in the middle of the road today. The SC lobster invasion didn't last long and was a brutal failure. Unless those were just the scouts for the main invasion force. I still have no idea how lobsters made it 200 miles inland.

The rain gage in my backyard (the kiddie pool) says it rained over 5 inches in 30 hours. Weather.com says we got 8.8 inches in 3 days. Not bad.

AM- Camped out with the daughters last night, so had a bit of a late start to my run. Ran out on Georgia road. Felt pretty ok on the way out. The way back had a headwind and lots of gradual, grinding uphills but I found myself able to click off 6:45 miles without problems, and the flat/no wind miles were 6:15-6:30. Nice to feel good. In fact, I was telling people just this week that my legs have never felt better than "B" since I got back from Hardrock, which was really getting me worried for Laurel Valley run next weekend. But, these past two good days of running finally have me feeling like my race goals might be in reach, esp. since they were at the end of a 100 mile week with LOTS of work stress and very little sleep. Anyways, finished with 14.5 miles in 1:45.

No lobster sightings, though.
