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 GE held another family fun run today. First was the costume contest (my 9 year old won a prize), then the race of somewhere around 5k. I had one teenager near me for the first half mile, then I was in front with the pace bike the rest of the way. We had to shoo 10 turkeys off the trail near the start, and several deer ran near racers. The RD had put lots of great halloween decorations all along the trail, some of which were pretty scary to my young kids. I ran moderately hard and won by a couple of minutes. I think my time was 20:30 or so. Marci and my 2 oldest ran, as well. Finally, the 3 youngest did the half mile fun run and loved it.
