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- big group today. I ran 5.5 miles and was pretty dang sore and tired. Apparently we have fresh water lobsters now, as the road around Oak Grove lake had 15 or more squished along the way.

We've had lots of rain recently, with 2 weekends in a row of 6+ inches in a few hours leading to flash floods. The storm this weekend washed away cars, blew up a bldg, destroyed roads, flooded lots of areas, and even killed 2 people. Pretty intense. I slept soundly through the whole thing because I was so tired Saturday night.

Lunch 8 miles. Legs felt somewhat better but my left ankle is quite painful. It might be these shoes, not sure.

Lunch- 9. My ankle really hurts the first 15 min of the run, then warms up. I think something is wrong with it.

AM- An hour at Icar with Jason. Only 2 more runs with him before he moves. We'll really miss him.

Lunch- Another hour. Fresh fruit Friday in the gym, only 2 left this summer.

Saw the most recent Running Times today- it had an article about Sasha Pachev and his running marathons in Crocs.

Feeling beat up (left ankle, right knee, plus others) and needed to sleep in. Took the family for a few hours of Ultimate Frisbee instead. Definitely some running there.
