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- In Denver for the holiday.  Ran 5 easy with my dad.  Quads are still very sore but improving, everything else felt fine.

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.  I ran 6 miles, ate lots of food, and went to Mile High Stadium to watch the Broncos whoop up on the Giants.  Fun game.

PM- 7.5 at just over 8 min pace.  Quad soreness is down to a 1 out of 10.  And I retired my shoes today- unlike some of my other recent shoes that gave out early, these provided great cushioning all the way to the end.

PM- 12.5 mile run in Denver just as the sun set and into the dark.  Ran from my parents to Chatfield Reservoir to South Platte River, then up the river trail to Bowles Ave and home. Almost all of it was on paved or dirt bike path, one great thing about Denver.  And I love the Platte River trail- they decided to put an 8 ft paved bike trail with a 6 ft dirt trail right next to it- genius.  I love running on the dirt trail, especially at night.  I ran near a big pack of coyotes howling at the moon- cool.  Only saw 3 people all run.  I was good despite the chilly, windy temps, though should have warn my warmer gloves.  Great night, good run- first time I felt a little spunk in my legs in a week.  About 7:30 avg for the run.

70 days...
