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!

Lunch- 30 min of foam roller, stick, stretching, and a little cross training.  Ankle, arches are achy.  Slight soreness in knees, hips, and quads.  Feel good other than that (well, except for overall fatigue).

The sun was setting as I left work.  I don't really care if the sun comes up late in the morning, but sunlight in the evening is nice.  Why can't we just stay on daylight savings year-round? 

Full race report from Saturday is now posted

Lunch- wasn't planning to run till Thursday, and only a few miles then, but felt good so ran 5 miles.  Good times- not too sore.  Feeling better about trying the FHT attempt Thanksgiving week.

Here is an interesting article.  It is the best explanation I have ever seen about why Greece is in trouble, why it affects others, and what they can do.

Lunch- 6.  Feeling ok.

Cool article in Running Times focused on my alma mater and their cross country team.  The coach started just as I was graduating, so it's neat to see the success they have had since I left.  And yes, I ran up the Lookout Mountain many times in practice, both on the paved road and on a singletrack trail.
