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 miles. Between the local marathon/half happening last weekend, and a very hard, cold rain this morning, I didn't see anyone running outside. But there were only a few people on the TM, too. I enjoyed getting caught up on the NFL weekend, and was pleasantly surprised about the Broncos win. Sorry, Paul.

Lunch- 8 miles, most of it with Todd. A bit faster than 7:30 pace. Nice weather, misty, cloudy, 60 deg. Comfortable for running. Then free lunch courtesy of GE.

AM- 10. I'm having to run a lot of mornings as I have lots of dentist appointments recently. I have two implants due a youth bike accident and it appears they have to be removed and replaced, though bone loss is so extreme that they'll likely have to pull the two adjacent teeth and put the implants in those locations, then give me a 4 tooth bridge. Even though we've hit our medical deductible for the year with our new kid, this all goes under dental insurance, which pays a pittance. I'm looking at $10-15k out of pocket. Ouch. This all on top of the fact my medical premiums are shooting up again next year. They are up 49% in 3 years. Everyone I speak to has similar increases, yet the "official" inflation rate for medical expenses and premiums is low single digits. Government statistics are meaningless at best, purposeful lies at worst.

AM- have lunch meetings so woke up early for run. Ran on GE track and was happy to see Moss show up a lap in. We ran 45 min together. He won the local marathon last weekend in 2:35 last Saturday so gave me the report. Probably the fastest run in months, as I was around 7 min pace for most of the run. Finished 10 miles in 72 min or so.

Planned to run but ended up being so busy all day (4 hrs helping someone move in ward, 3 hrs picking up furniture and shopping, 4 hrs home projects for Marci) that I canned it. We didn't even have soccer today- both practices this week and the games were nixed due to excessive rain (plus some thunderstorms early this morning). It's really been a wet month- we got 7 inches of rain at the weather station nearest my house in the past week, and over 19 inches of rain since the start of Oct.
