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!

Day 3 of 3 resting the Achilles.  Run again tomorrow to test it out and shake off the rust.  Then a few more runs before driving to Alabama on Friday.  Saturday at 6 am is Go time.

Lunch- 6 miles running. Felt appropriately rusty. Achilles is...still attached. It seems the most likely obstacle for my race.

Ran 3 miles in the rain, including one with Aspen biking alongside. Now in AL waiting for bedtime. I'm excited for the race and hope it goes well. Given the state of my foot, realistic possibilities include everything from a DNF at mile 10 to a fast finish. I will do my absolute best.

Quick report- felt ok first 70 miles of race- not great, not bad.  Pretty even with few highs and lows.  I had come to terms with having just a mediocre race, edging in the top 10.  Split at 55 miles indicated 19:45 finishing time, well behind my 18 hr goal.  Started feeling better miles 70-80, then really came alive at 80 and felt great the last 20 miles.  Moved from 7th place up to 3rd in 10 miles, then held off some late charges to stay on the podium, despite going off course and going swimming in a lake twice (literally- long story).  Hard to describe how good I felt the last 20 miles.  Sure makes racing fun.  In the end, a good run on a great, beautiful course with lots of nice people.  And training buddy Jason finished his first hundred, too, in a very respectable 21:19.  Full report... eventually.  But I've run 100 miles and slept 0 hours in the past 40 hours, so I think I'm heading for some shut eye.

Update- race report here: http://greenshortsrunning.blogspot.com/2014/01/pinhoti-100-mile-race-report-aka-power.html
