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- first run back.  Lake and neighborhood with the guys, 7 miles. Felt ok for 4, then legs got tired and lower back tightened up.  Hot Dan ran a trail half marathon over the weekend.  He placed 3rd, but found the trail extremely technical and twisted his ankles many times.  Sounds like my kind of race.

Lunch- 15 min core work, 6 mile run, then some foam roller.  Low of 25 last night and 40 deg temp when we ran- brr.  Freezing.  That's near record lows.

Finally got a break from work at 3:30.  I've been feeling a bit beat up and fatigued, so I just did some moderate xt to burn off a little steam before heading back to the desk.  Wonder what it would be like to be a full-time athlete.

No run for the second day.  Busy at work all day long, no lunch break of any sort.  Bummer.

AM- early morning trail run at Issaqueenah, my first time there in a year or more.  Ran with Josh and Barry.  What a nice place to run- lots of singletrack crammed into a small, nice forest.  Barry and I ran quite a bit further north than I've ever gone before, too.  Perfect, cool but not cold temps.  Very tired legs the last 30 min as I can tell I'm still not fully recovered from the hundo.  Messed up the watch for 30 min but estimate 19 miles in 3:16 with 1700-2000 ft climbing.
