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!

Planned day off.  Feel better than I ever have after a marathon- I can even go up and down stairs without leaning on the banister.  Some soreness, of course, but nothing bad other than one foot.  Hopefully a bit of rest/easy running will have me fully recovered and ready to train through the winter.

Here is the article from the Herald Journal yesterday.  Paul looks relaxed and Logan is actually smiling.  But I was glad to see those two get the credit they deserve for leading the pacing crew, greatly helping Steve, Adam, and myself.  And now I can forever tease them that they are official members of "my" entourage.  Makes me feel like Tom Brady or something, except with a better looking wife and kid (mine, not his)!

3 cross training miles- some excellent ultimate frisbee.  It's my first time playing in about a month.  I really missed it, but it was a worthy sacrifice to not risk injury right before my marathon.  If anyone else wants to play, we play every Tue and Thurs evening, plus Sat mornings.

Almost 2 hours of glorious ultimate frisbee today.  Great weather. 

PM- Evening run, 55 degrees, up Logan canyon river trail with the trees changing to their autumn colors, and a light drizzle.  Can life get any better than this?  I propose that it cannot.  There were clouds midway up the mountains, and just as the sun was setting a huge rainbow appeared for 5 minutes, stretching from one side of the canyon to the other.  Wish I had a camera so I could have shared the beauty with all of you.  Days like today are the reason I run- for the love of running and for the beauty of nature.  Perfect.
