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!

Lunch- 6 run, 4 xt.  Achilles didn't feel great but wasn't painful.

I moved into a new age group today- Usher and I both turned 35 (twins?).  After work, Marci surprised me with a dinner sans kids.  We chose a wild game restaurant where we ate kangaroo, duck, and gator.  Then I went to Panera Bread for a free dessert... but apparently they don't do that anymore.  Doh.  So then we went to Culver's and got a free sundae.  I love Culvers.  And I'm very stuffed now.

Lunch- 7 with Phil and Jim (meaning it was at an honest, Phil pace), then some xt.  Minimal pain.

AM 8 on a beautiful, cool morning with some fog hanging in the air. Gorgeous sunrise over a misty meadows with a few trees spread throughout. Felt tired and slow yesterday, but energetic and fast today.

PM Went apple picking with the family, then ran a slow 6 miles with my dad.

AM ran to the soccer fields for a bit of hilly speed work. No real time distance goals, just raise the heart rate. Ended up doing about 4-5 miles around 6:30 ish pace. Ran into Jason so he joined me for the last mile. 10 miles total in 70 min.

PM 6 miles in 44 min. Glad I got in all 80 miles I wanted this week. It seemed a pretty easy 80. I'd normally start my taper but I might wait an extra week as I'm already feeling rested from low mileage the last 6 weeks.
