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- normal Monday morning run watching Mike & Mike. It was cold and rainy (again/still) so no thought of going out. Starting to retire some of my shoes, so digging up some old ones that have mileage on them still.

PM- My first trail run in 134 days (not that I'm counting), as Western States was my last time on dirt. And first PM run since Jun 9. Ran 8.5 miles with Barry and Seth in 90 min. Felt pretty good- legs were fine, stomach wasn't happy due to huge, greasy, late lunch. So nice to finally make it out there again. Good thing Barry reminded me to bring my headlamp as the last 30 min were in the dark. A bit muddy from all the recent rain, but perfect weather tonight with some nice leaf viewing.

In the "the Fed says there's no inflation" department, the per-person fee to enter SC state parks has just gone up from $2 to $5. Ouch. I had to write a check as I only had $2 with me, other than some bigger bills.

AM- 10, the first 3 or so with Dan at a good clip, then a bit slower, then I really ran out of steam the last 3 miles. It was pretty chilly, 40 deg or so, but felt quite nice with a long sleeve shirt. The sun was out, the first time I've seen that in a while.

Lunch- 7 with the guys, then I ran the newly reopened GE trail. Pretty muddy after all the rain, but still nice. Good to have that option reopened.
