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- 10 miles.  5 miles at 7:00 pace, then I decided I couldn't let Cody's morning run be faster than mine.  So I did two 6:30 miles followed by two 6:00 miles.  Felt good.  10 miles total, 1:08:00, 6:48.

PM- I'm doing a Thanksgiving 10k and haven't done anything faster than 6:00 pace since SGM, so I figured I should do a little workout today.  The plan was 2 miles warmup, 2 miles tinman tempo, 3x800 m w/ 200m rest, then run home.  I met Paul at planet walk.  We started talking about football so much that we completely forgot to start the tempo till we were .5 mile from the track, so we did a very mini-tempo.  For the repeats, I simply wanted to be sub-6:00 pace and to get faster with each one.  They were rather slow, due to my easy goals plus lack of warmup.  First one was ~2:55 (no official time), then 2:54, then 2:53.  We were carrying on a very regular conversation the whole time, so weren't really working hard, though we were breathing a bit.  The next two were both 2:49 and still weren't too hard.  On the last one, we started off quicker and Paul really picked up the pace with 300 m to go.  He ran 2:34, I ran 2:38.  Felt good and pretty fast, but not strained at all.  Ran Paul home, then wound my way home.  Total was about 10 miles, 1:08:34.

Mission accomplished for the workout- just tried to pick up the pace and keep my legs fresh for my 10k.

AM- Semi-long run.  Ran from First Dam up the windy Logan Canyon to the start of the singletrack on the river trail with Cody and Lisa, then back to the car.  Then Paul and Joe joined us and we ran up the hilly Bonneville Shoreline trail and most of the way up Green Canyon.  I gave Paul and Lisa a hard time because they had never ran on the new singletrack that is 2 years old.  Very good run today with a good group- fun and nice to still be running on great trails this late in the year.  No snow on the trails yet.  It's nice that the Logan running group is growing again.  Although I worry about the mental state of a few of them-- they seem to have some abnormal (unhealthy?) infatuation with waving their arms in the air and screaming like girls when they run fast.  16 miles, 2:08.

Now it's off to Florida for a week where the weather will be warmer but I will have very little time for running.
