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!

What, you really think I'm going to run today?  You gotta be kidding.  Soreness was a 7 out of 10, probably the most sore since SGM years ago.  Far more sore than after the Bear 100 last year.

 Full race report is posted on my Green Shorts Running blog

Lunch- foam roller, followed by some xt.  Might run tomorrow.  Only sore thing still is my hips.

Lunch- ran 5.5 with Phil and Jim.  First run since UROC- most of my soreness is gone, except in my hips.  Definitely feel tired and sluggish, though- good thing I'm not trying to set a 5k PR anytime soon.

Want to see something really scary?  Watch the photos of my finish, starting with the first, in slideshow mode.  Hide your women and children first, though.  (Yes, I'm very aware Burt and others will use these pictures to mock me extensively.  Rightfully so.)

Lunch- 5 running, 1 super intense xt (In it to win it obstacle course competition at work- our coed team took first place overall, which means we get gift certificates or something).  Barry is running the popular StumpJump 50k tomorrow, so hopefully it goes well.

Have a small niggle in my foot, so rest.  No need to start pushing anything yet.  Just play with my kids, do yard work, and watch General Conference instead.
