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- 7 easy. Negligible soreness.

PM- 11 from First Dam to Guinivah Malibu, 8:02 avg pace.  The trail was practically empty tonight, as opposed to last week when Cody and I saw a crowd of people.  Or would it be a herd?  A mob?  Grundle?  Gaggle?

Finished with 406.5 miles this month, my first month over 400 ever.  4 straight months over 300 miles, another first.  354 miles/month avg since the start of May.

AM- 6.  Feeling better than yesterday.

PM- 8 with Paul.  Realized afterwards that we went the whole time without talking about football, which is surprising given the proximity of the season plus all the drama in the NFC North.

AM- Slept in a bit too long to get in a long run.  9.5 easy instead.  Now to go rafting for the day.

PM- 6 slow miles.  Tired from a very fun day rafting on the Snake River.  Marci and I went rafting with some coworkers of mine on the Snake River today. It was a blast, but the best was the second run when my boss and the 2 kids with us got dumped! Check out these pictures.

We almost tipped over, but my favorite is Frame 12a where all you can see of the two kids is their feet sticking out of the water. The girl got tossed so far she is out of the frame in the other views. She cried the rest of the time and just wanted out of the boat!

AM- Long run with a BW.  Started at the in-laws house but mainly ran on the Idaho Falls greenbelt and Freeman Park.  Warmed up 8 miles (7:19 avg pace), then started my 10 mile tinman tempo.  Goal was around 6:00 pace, though I discovered that the greenbelt is not the ideal tempo route due to number of people, quite a few stoplights, plus a few cutbacks.  And it has a few hills.  Nevertheless, did the tempo in 1:00:57, which averages 6:05.  Last mile was a 5:47.  I was happy with the workout- I did it late morning, so the temp was ~75 deg, plus the course certainly added at least 5-10 seconds per mile.  And 10 miles is a long way to tempo.  Cooled down 5 miles at 7:13 pace, giving a total workout of 23 miles in 2:35:43 (6:46 avg).  Legs are tired now- last long run before TOU.

Doing my long run on Fri should secure me at the top of the mileage board for the rest of the day... :)
