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!

PM- At work from 5:30 am till 9:30 pm, then went back to the hotel and got in 10 miles while watching MNF and the World Series.  Nice to have a productive day.

PM- 10.5 miles after sunset on the beach.  Rather enjoyable and pleasant weather.  It is somewhat difficult to run on the beach at high tide, though- I either have to run on a steep camber or over the berm on the very loose sand.  It tends to aggravate my right achilles/lower calf.

AM- 8 miles on PW and a loop through Logan.  Started 6:50 pace, then gradually picked it up till the last mile was 6:10 pace.  53:25 for 8 miles.  Felt good to run fast, and unlike Cody, I didn't notice a lack of oxygen.  My shoes are now retired- they've been a great pair, but I started to really tell they are worn out the last few run.

This will be my last blog for a week- going on a cruise with Marci.

Funny experience- about .5 miles from my house, a runner dressed in all black was coming the other way.  It wasn't until I passed him that I realized it was my dad- my parents arrived yesterday to watch the kids, but I wasn't expecting him to be on a run.
