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!

lunch 6.5. It's been overcast and rainy for a week. No one in SC saw the blood moon. I was lucky I saw it in sunny Denver.

Lunch- 9. Nothing really to report. Mariani made the BQ cutoff by 50 seconds- exciting for him. I'm looking forward to Conference this weekend, and we plan to potty train my 2 year old. And both my girls won their soccer games last week, the first time that has happened. I was in Denver so didn't see any of it, of course. Hope the games aren't rained out this weekend. Sept is normally the driest month and we've had over 5 inches of rain.

Lunch- 9 miles, most of them a fair amount quicker than usual. The weather has been cool and rainly lately, 3-4 inches in the past week and always overcast. A HUGE storm system is predicted to drop 14+ inches of additional rain by Sunday. Might be some flooding.

Today is St George marathon and StumpJump 50k, both races I've done and enjoyed. I may be retired from racing but I still am excited for my racing friends and follow along. Given the rain outside today, it seems fitting I did both races in bad weather years, and that SJ is expecting lots of rain today. Run strong, friends, and enjoy.

I actually appear in the video 3 times. Can anyone figure out where? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhEWT4qp-4M

Speaking of bad weather, it's currently 53 deg, pouring buckets, and 20 mph winds. I think I'll go for a nice run in a minute.

Ran 8 miles. Felt good, probably around 7 min pace. The good news about running in the rain is, once you are wet, you can't get any wetter.
