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!

AM 8 miles with two 6:15-ish pace. Broncos won last night, though I only stayed up for the first half. MNF just ends too late here on the East Coast.

I got in bed early last night but tossed and turned until past 2 am. Not what I wanted race week. At least Senator Cruz knows how I feel right now.

Lunch- 5 miles with 4 strides.  Trying to get caught up on sleep before the race.  Weather wise, this is a great time of year around here for running.

AM 3 ez. Go time for The North Face 50 tomorrow. Just listened to Dean Karnazas. Weather looks perfect, the course is 98% single track, and Cody and Tim are doing great Bear 100.

Full report now posted.

Quick report-

45 miles of running on this

Across this terrain

While making up 8 minutes on the lead pack in 10 miles before passing them at mile 45, leads to some Dean time.

Awesome race, one of my best executed ever, over a very challenging course while racing great people.  What a fun day.
