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- 4:10 wake up call to get in 12 miles- I'm very tired.  Followed that with 3 Einstein's bagels- cherry with strawberry spread, blueberry with almond-honey spread, and pumpkin with pumpkin.  I guess that means I'm about even on calories today.  Seems like a fair trade.

PM- 6 more.  I just passed my total mileage from last year... and I have almost 1000 more miles planned this year!  This is by far my highest year ever.

AM- 7.5 easy. It's my birthday today. Since I know some of you will ask- no, I'm not going to run 31 miles or anything like that. In fact, I'm not running any more today.  I'm going to enjoy a nice dinner with my wife and play with my daughters after work, something I don't get to do as often as I would like.

AM- 9.5.  I have run 49.5 miles in the morning before work this week, which is definitely a personal record.  I have to finish my run by 6:10 am to catch my vanpool, so I was starting by 4:45 or so each day.  This is a good scenario for minimizing time away from my family, except I really need to get to bed before 11 pm each night.

PM- Very enjoyable trail run from First Dam to just before Guinavah Malibu.  Lots of gorgeous leaves, though a bit chilly.  Legs felt sluggish until the last bit, where I picked it up, inc. last mile of 6:35.  11.2 miles in 1:28:29.

AM- I had planned to do Richard's Hollow this morning, part of the Bear 100 course.  But, after minimal sleep this week, I was up till 1:30 last night trying to get my daughter to sleep.  When my alarm went off, I turned it off and slept till 8.  Then I did an easy 7 on PW.  About a dozen people with professional cameras on the trail, for some reason.  Now I watch the kids all day while Marci is in SLC.
