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- my ankle/leg improved drastically each day during the weekend, so I decided to give it a go today.  Ran 4 miles easy with Hot Dan, then a little xt.  No issues.  Very relieved to have appeared to have dodged a bullet.  No more long runs in shoes with 500+ miles, that's for sure.

Lunch- ran 9 more with a big group.  No issues again.  We ran to Oak Grove lake, our most common route from work.  18 months ago, the dam broke, though the resulting flood didn't injure anyone (it's not a real big lake).  Well, they finally reopened the dam today, so we can run lake loops again.  18 months- that's a long time for a little lake.

AM- BW.  3 miles warmup, 9 miles tempo in 55:30, 1 mile cooldown.  Didn't feel energetic but got it done.  The pit stop 5 miles in sure helped feel a bit better.

Lunch- 4.5 with the LR group on a hot, humid day.  This is my recovery week, so I'm trying my best to not go over 80 miles.  I'm having a hard time keeping my miles low enough.  After three 100-ish mile weeks, 80 seems like a cake walk.  Funny how perspective works.

Lunch- 7.  Really not much to say about it.  Running with the LR group makes it nice.  The LR chat before is usually entertaining.

PM- you know you finished your run late when the only dinner options are Wendy's or Waffle House. Anyways, did a Foothills trail run with Merle starting at 6 pm. Ran 6 miles towards the bench, then back to the car, then the other way to the top of Mt Sassafras. Generally slow due to a long week plus technical trails at night. Saw 2 campers the whole time, no one else. We enjoyed the Sassafras lookout at 10 pm, very peaceful. Finished 22.5 miles with 4500 ft climb in 4:45. Finally got home for the first time today at 12:45 am. Sleep now.

PM- busy day with hardworking, soccer, and then going to running buddy Barry's wedding in Asheville. I took running clothes thinking the wedding might finish early enough to get in a trail run in NC but didn't leave till 9 pm. Stopped by Swamp Rabbit trail in TR and ran a brisk 6ish miles instead. Felt good, my sore knee from yesterday didn't slow me down.
