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!

PM- some crosstraining and lots of foam rolling.  My left hammy and right quad are most sore, as are my ankles (esp. the swollen right one).

Lunch- 7 ez miles in 57 minutes.  Todd found what appears to be a cross country route around Mt. Zion Academy so that was nice.  Ankle wasn't happy all run, though mainly when running on anything bumpy or off-camber.

PM- Paris Mtn with a group of 6 of us.  Good run, though I was unsurprisingly very tired by the end.  And I twisted my left ankle pretty good, leaving me limping.  11.5 miles in 1:52.

Woke up for a morning run but my walk to the bathroom had me feeling sufficiently beat up still that I decided to give myself an extra day rest.  After all, the key is being healthy and fit for Pinhoti 100, not meeting arbitrary mileage goals this week.  Perspective.  I don't feel at all guilty for any extra rest days or cross training within 10 days either side of an ultra.
