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!

Wanted to get a descent run today, so decided to do a classic run that I hadn't done in over 2 months since I was burned out on it. Ran from my house to the end of the canal and back, 8 miles. Started at 6:45 pace, then gradually picked up the pace the whole way until the last mile was 5:45. I guess it was somewhat of a tinman tempo/marathon pace/threshold run. Felt real good but I was definitely working fairly hard. Cool, nice running weather.  50:45, 6:20 avg for the whole run.

No James, no Cody, no Paul, no Dan, no Logan, no Dave, no Ben.  All alone.  **sob**

Started at the 1 mile mark of Logan river trail, ran to just before Guinavah Malibu and back.  30 min up, 28:20 down.  Definitely getting cooler, so I have to get all the trail runs I can before my trip to Florida and winter.

Beach run in Florida again today.  Thanks to the nearby tropical storm, it was the most windy run of my life- sustained wins above 30 mph with gusts up to 40.  Combined with rain that can only be described as stinging (it usually came sideways) and blowing sand, it was a heck of a run.  Ran into the wind first, crawling along.  Often had to look at my feet because the rain hurt my face so much.  Ran to the cape entrance, then turned around and ran 3.5 miles with the wind at my back.  Glorious.  Then, turned around and had 1.5 miles home into the wind.  Very painful.  It was a good thing no one else was on the beach cause I sure looked funny.  I started smiling and yelling at the wind and rain.  I said things like "Is this the best you can do", "Bring it on", "You can do better than this", and "I am Spartacus" (not sure why I kept saying that one.  I sang Home on the Range a few times and kept growling and roaring at the wind.  Thouroughly enjoyed myself despite the wind and rain blast.  Great fun.  And, I hardly had to breath since the wind shoved itself down my throat.  Fun run trying to beat mother nature today.
