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!

Both of my achilles were very sore all day, which is a tad worrisome.  Iced a few times, then ran 3 easy miles on a little loop at Paris Mtn with Marci. 600 ft climbing.  She heads home early tomorrow morning :(

AM- Wanted some good miles today without straining my aching Achilles too much, so did 8 miles cross train with 6 miles run before work.  

Lunch- 9.5 miles with Jim, moving at a decent clip (~6:45 avg).

Lunch- 7.5 easy miles with Jason, 600 ft climbing, in 58 min.

PM- 11.5 slow miles around Paris Mtn in 1:52 with 2200 ft climbing.  I caught a toe once and actually fell, a very rare occurance for me.  Left Achilles is extremely unhappy with me- I'll bag the trail runs for the next 2 days and do only flat stuff to let it rest of Saturday's long run, my last before the Bear.  Better to be healthy than injured.  Scheduled a massage for Saturday, too.

Achilles hurt enough today that I decided it deserves a few days off.  So I cross-trained like the dickens during lunch and after work.  I'll do the same tomorrow, then maybe can do my long run on Sat.  But only if I feel a lot better.

I added a few pictures from last week's race on the race report

No run today to rest the achilles, though I might go biking.  It's raining right now- I think I'll go enjoy a little walk in 70 deg weather.  I'm a bit lucky right now, actually- the mountain where I was planning to run is currently in the middle of a huge, severe thunderstorm.  The storm appears to be several hundred miles long with lots of ominous red spots on the radar map- not fun at all.  

Ah, who am I kidding- I'd rather be running in the middle of the storm than stuck at home!

Massage later today.
