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!

PM- 5 easy miles with McKinley in the stroller, 41:00.  No muscle soreness, which means I lost a bet with my massage therapist (I bet I would have sore quads, she bet I would be fine.  She promised 30 free minutes today if I was sore).  Minimal fatigue- less than last week at this time.  The bruise on the bottom of my left foot is still sore and my right foot has a few blisters, but overall in great shape 2 days post-marathon.

PM- 7.5 miles with Paul on the Logan River trail.  Made the mistake of wearing my non-super cushioned trail shoes and discovered the bruise on my left foot is definitely NOT gone.  Very painful run- I'll have to stay off the trails for a while to make darn sure this foot gets better.

PM- 5 easy miles, ~7:15 pace.  Felt spunky and foot didn't feel too bad until I stepped on a rock at mile 4. 

Boy, I'm just ripping it up mileage-wise this week!  I often have this many miles by Tuesday morning!

Long run with Cody, Paul, and Ruth with my work running group, who supplied aid stations.  Cody and I ran 2 miles before leaving, then everyone drove up Blacksmith Fork Canyon.  Cody and I ran 3 miles up to the TOU start, then turned back down.  Cool morning, slight breeze- perfect running weather.  We caught Paul and Ruth at mile 3 and ran with them till mile 12.  Then Cody and I did 2 MP miles, followed by running up the big hill into Hyrum (good practice for St. George mile 19), then back to Hollow Road and to the end.  Last 5 miles were 5:49, 5:48, 6:04 (with hill), 6:22, 6:16, then 5:38 pace for the last .5 mile.  We sprinted the last bit to catch Paul and Ruth again.  Finished with juice, bananas, and bagels.  Yummy.  Felt good the whole way, especially at the end- my legs weren't really fatigued and I could have added on 2-3 more MP miles with minimal difficulty.  That's what running very low miles this week does to my legs.  Ruth was a real trooper and put up with our antics and did a good job keeping up at a fast pace despite a nasty cold.  Hopefully her coach won't be too mad that she ran 17 miles...

22.75 miles, 2:36:58, 6:54 pace.  Not bad.  Round down for 22.5 miles.
