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!

I decided to try out my gym membership at Planet Fitness since I am planning to run there at 4:30 am many mornings this winter.  Only cost me $100 for a year.  6.5 miles on the treadmilll watching MNF, 7:30 pace.

It's my birthday today!  The big 3-0!  I can't believe I'm 30.  And no, I'm not running 30 miles today, although maybe this week.

Unfortunately, Adam and Holt are already in that age group, and Paul, Clyde, and James will turn 30 within a few months, so it's not like I'm moving into an easier age group or anything.  Cody should be the biggest beneficiary next year...

8 easy miles with Joe up Green Canyon.  It's getting cooler in the evenings.  They made some improvements to the trail, like knocking out the campground that the trail used to go thru such that there is no road there, only the trail.  Nice.

My head cold has moved into my chest a bit, so I've been trying to take it easy, like not running the past 2 days.  No need to make it worse.

WARNING:  I do not advise eating a pound of swedish fish immediately before running.  It turns what would otherwise be a very easy 6 mile run with Cody into a rather uncomfortable, miserable, slow excursion.

I first ran to Ephraim's grave 6 years ago.  Every summer, I plan to return but never have... until now.  Joe, Cody and I finally made it.  The run starts up Willow Creek trail, then we took the Ephraim's cutoff route.  We made it to the grave and enjoyed a few snacks.  Then some running on a dirt road followed by a fun decent down Steel Hollow trail, which is one of my favorite downhill routes.  We are glad Joe survived, as well, since he just about biffed it in a location where there was a big rock right ahead of him and a small cliff on his right. 

12 miles in all, 2800 feet climbing (per Cody's GPS), 8:57 avg pace (not too bad for that route, esp. considering we were at about 10-11 min avg pace before the last decent.  Had some sub-6:30's on the downhill parts).  It was an enjoyable, cool fall morning with some good views, a fair number of hunters, and even a little snow on parts of the trail.  We just enjoyed the run, even walking up a few of the steeper hills.  We are very lucky to live so near such beautiful mountains and trails.  Days like today are the reason I enjoy running.  Finished with a donut run.
