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- My post-marathon break is over. Time to get back to work, starting with my first pre-work run since Sept 11 (my longest no-weekday morning run since January). 6.5 easy. Legs finally starting to feel better, unlike Sat. Planning on 70-ish miles this week, 90-ish next week.

PM- 7 more miles, mixed in between 5 pieces of pizza.

AM- 7.  Ran in my new Pearl Izumi shoes- look cool and fit great.  Love them.  Thanks, Hooper.  Since I'm protesting Brooks and won't be buying them after 2 disappointing pairs of Adrenalines, I have a feeling that this may be the start of a long and beautiful relationship between PI and myself.  My shoes are mainly New Balance and Saucony, but PI will be added to that list.

PM- At home watching the kids, so used my new NordicTrack Incline trainer for the first time.  Did a good hill workout for 45 min.  We'll count it as 6 miles.

AM- Long run with Cody.  A bit chilly when we started (35 deg with a slight, non-directional breeze), and it never really warmed up but was a rather enjoyable temp.  Ran through town to Logan Canyon and all the way to just before Guinavah Malibu.  Due to no canyon wind, First Dam lake was mirror smooth, a rarity.  Saw some cops and upset people at Stokes parking lot- apparently someone had broken a bunch of car windows and snatched some purses 30 minutes earlier.  Not cool- don't leave valuables in your car!  Cody and I both felt more fatigued then we should have and semi-bonked.  Finished the run at 7:31 avg pace.
