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- 9 miles on a rainy day.  New route today (well, a few miles of it), which is definitely something new from the standard 3 routes we run...

The moving truck arrived with a few furnishings for our apartment.  It seems weird to have more than a card table and air mattress, my only furniture for the past 2 months.

No run today.  Long, busy day.  In some good news, we closed on our house in Utah.  Unfortunately, we had to take a hefty check to closing- that definitely hurts.  But at least we sold it- there are a lot of people in this country who would love to sell their houses, even at a loss.  Now we can low-ball the crud out of everyone here to find a good deal.

AM- Long run, just on the normal lunch run routes, all strung together.  17 miles in 2:07, including doing 2 of the last miles a bit faster, just for fun (6:35 pace).  1000 ft climbing, just from all the hills.  Hips and Achilles hurt, so I thought of stopping at 12, but just kept going.  First run this long on the roads in a long time, and it's kind of boring by myself.

For the record, the lake we do repeats around is .8525 (I ran around it 4 times and took the average).

Last race of the year next week- I'm mainly trying to have fun (though I'll be somewhat competitive, of course).  No races planned after that- not sure if I'll take a break or sign up for something else soon.
