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- 10 on another hot day. Summer will end eventually.

Lunch- 5 in the pouring rain with Dan and Jim.  Lots of rain- high of 75 today and 2.74 inches of rain, complete with 12 hours of flash flood warning.  Basically ran through puddles all run.

PM- Didn't go to PM cause I got stuck late at work and everyone else had bailed due to work and rain concerns, so I ran at GE.  7+3.5. About 5 miles less than planned today.  Oh well.

Looks like Nathan HPL #28 vests are on sale at Zombie Runner if anyone wants to buy a classic, useful item.  Of course, the new ones look even better.

Want to know a bit more about Hardrock 100?  Watch this video, or at least from the 4:30 min mark for a couple minutes and you'll see why it's the toughest, most beautiful race in the country.

Gotta love the days when you wake up at 3 am for absolutely no reason and can't fall asleep despite an hour of lying in place.  Oh well, might as well go for a run now.

AM- Planned to do the BW I missed yesterday.  3 mile warmup, then planned on 2x4mile at faster than MP.  Felt like trash the first 1.5 miles of the workout and couldn't get going faster than 6:05-ish pace, but then kind of settled in and just sweated it out.  Decided at mile 4 to not take a break, decided at mile 7 to extend the workout to 9 miles, then all the way to 10.  10 miles in 61 min.  2 miles cooldown, giving 15 total in 98 min.  Last BW before Waldo 100k.

Lunch- 6 more with Aaron, Scott, and Dan.

It's still a bit far to look at the weather forecast for Waldo, but they are expecting highs of mid-60's this week and lows below 40.  Brr.  I might freeze to death.  Although normal temps are 80/50.  For me, though, I hope they get a nasty heat wave- the hotter it is, the more to my advantage.

AM- 8.5 miles pushing Zach in the stroller, then 9 by myself. Definitely easier with no stroller. Last run of 2+ hrs before Waldo.  My 413 miles in Aug was my second most ever, and I'm feeling pretty good for the race.  It should be competitive and gorgeous scenery.
