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- 10.  I only ran 11 miles in 5 days, trying to rest the niggle in my right foot.  I run again today, and it hurts more than ever- every step, rather than just after the run.  But, my other foot also hurts, and more than the right one.  What the HAY?!?  Figures.  

Lunch- 8 more.  Both feet hurt.  Maybe turning 33 made me get really old and injury prone...

Lunch- 7 with the guys.

PM- PM with Barry for one last time this year (park closes at 6 pm after Daylight savings).  Enjoyable, as always.  12 miles, 2 hrs.

My credit card number was somehow stolen, and a $400 Lego Death Star was shipped to someone in SC, who unwittingly was supposed to forward it to Russia (along with 12 other packages he got).  Fortunately, his BS detector went off and he called the cops.  Lovely.

PM- Long couple of days at work due to some testing and hardware issues.  Got a quick 5.5 after work before heading to Trunk-r-Treat at our church.  This is the 3rd day this week I didn't get home until after 8 pm.  Long week.  

Now it's full taper time for Mountain Masochist.  You know it's a good race when there is even a shoe named after it

AM- 7 before the wife had to leave.  Today is the big marathon/half marathon in Greenville, and the weather is pretty much perfect- it rained last night, weather is 40 and overcast.  Hope they all do well.
