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!

Interesting speech by Tom Woods on our government today.  And Rob, it has nothing to do with Ron Paul.  But it is funny and thought provoking.

AM- Wanted a mini-workout.  4 warmup, 4 at 6:00 pace, 2 cooldown.  Total 10 miles in 1:09.

Lunch- 6 ez. 

Today was my last double till after UROC.  I'm looking forward to being able to sleep in.  Well, except for having a newborn in the house- that might prevent some sleep.  Unfortunately, the little guy still doesn't want to come- 4 days late and counting.

Up at 4:30 am to head to the hospital.  Important things happening there today...

 

  

Afterwards, went for a nice 5 mile jog.  Hard to beat a day like today.  I've got a son!

Goose egg- zero miles.  At the hospital from sunup till almost sundown- Zach had a few problems crop up and is now in NICU.  But it looks like he'll be fine, even if he stays in the hospital a few days longer.  Some days, running is at the bottom of the priority list.

PM- 9 ez.  Ran 1.5 of them with McKinley peddling alongside on her bike, the first time we have ever done that.  Marci and Zach both came home from the hospital today and are doing great.
