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- 8 ez

Lunch- 6 with the guys, then 6 by myself behind GE.  This week is the local marathon and pretty much all the lunch run group is doing it except me.  Makes for some lonely running the next 2 weeks as they are all tapering and recovering rather than doing normal runs.

AM- working second shift today, so slept in a bit and then went for a nice run around home.  15 miles or so on hilly terrain, 1:52.  Great weather for a run. 

I really need to update my GSR blog.  I haven't done any race reports or anything since March.

Am- 12

Lunch- 10 more, half by myself behind GE.

Passed my goal of 3300 miles for the year,but I think I'll keep running a bit more as it will likely help my 50 miler in December.

AM- Medium workout.  3 warmup, 3 tempo, 1 uphill (10% incline at 6 mph), 2 tempo, 1 uphill, 2 tempo, 1 cooldown.  The tempo were 6:00 ish pace, each one faster.  The last mile was pretty quick, esp. the 12 mph last bit.  Tired by the end.  13 miles in 93 min (I think).

Lunch- 4 run, then 4 xt, and 15 min abs.  Tired, tired, tired.

AM- Today is the local Spinx road marathon, so I decided to run the FHT Heartbreak Bench marathon again on the trails.  It's 24-25 miles, 4800 to 5800 ft climbing (ish), lots of fun.  I wore my Ragnar hunter safety orange and saw lots of hunters and backpackers (at least the second half).  Went out moderate pace and hit the turnaround in 2:06, 2 min faster than last time.  Came back in 2:01, 4 min faster than last time.  New FKT of 4:07:57.  I love this trail- lots of singletrack, tons of pretty trees and a carpet of leaves, lots of hills.  If I stopped my potty and picture breaks, and didn't do it at the end of 100 mile weeks, I'm sure I could break 4 hrs.  Next time.  I'd have to stop negative splitting this, since I should be tired on the way back and it's 500 ft more climbing.
