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. Ankle felt better today, but still have some other pains and I'm still tired. I forget how long it takes to recover from hard races.

Lunch- 9.5

PM- 9.5 at PM with Aaron, Lynn, and Seth. Got stung by a yellow jacket and made several pit stops- yup, one of those kind of days. But the hot weather ended up missing us as a rainstorm pushed it out. Always good to run on dirt.

AM- Met Dan and Jim, ran to the lake for a workout. Wanted 6x1 lap (about .86 miles each) with 50 seconds moderate running rest (i.e. very active recovery). First 4 laps were 5:08, 4:58, 5:00, 5:10. I really died the last one as they were 20+ seconds faster than me. I took a 4 minute run to recover, then tried 1 more and was happy to get another 5:00 before calling it a day. 10 miles or so total.

Lunch- busy, wasn't able to get in a run. 

Talked to my Bishop for a while last night. I found out his house was in the middle of the huge, flash-flood storm last week. His neighborhood got 11 inches of rain in under 2 hours. That is insane. His house flooded, some of his yard washed away, his neighbors cars were under water and had to call the fire department to rescue them. That is some rain.

AM 16 miles in just over 2 hrs. Not really much to say about it.

My right knee is still hurting. I've decided it's a leftover from my quad cramps in laurel valley that aggravated or misaligned my knee. It hasn't been happy since.
