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 Charleston on vacation. It was a very cold and windy morning for a run. Did 4 miles around the Mt Pleasant hotel then set off on my first-ever run across Cooper River Bridge. 2.5 miles of concrete, zooming cars, and awesome views. And cold. Very cold and windy. I really wished I had a jacket, hat, and warmer gloves. Then back across the bridge to finish with 11 miles. 6+ miles on concrete! perhaps my most ever.

AM- 10 miles around Mt. Pleasant, some of it on nice dirt bird watching trails.  Seek out dirt wherever you can!  Much warmer than yesterday.  Finishing up a fun vacation in Charleston, then heading home tonight to a flood watch (predicting 3-5" of rain in less than a day).

AM- Ran 12 miles around home in a cold (below 40 deg) on-and-off rain. It started sleeting just before the end, then changed to a full-on snow storm (complete with huge, drifting flakes) right after I finished.  Since it only snows once or twice a winter here in Greenville, this is a big deal. My kids are loving it.

AM- Brr, 20 deg this morning, my coldest run in years.  It even snowed for an hour yesterday here, a rarity, though nothing stuck.  13 miles on the Georgia Rd area.  Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

AM- Trail run at Issaqueenah with Barry and Jason.  We decided to venture into the Todd's Creek area for the first time ever.  It was interesting and challenging- the trails don't appear to get used much, they often peter out, and we did a fair amount of off-trail bushwacking.  Saw some awesome ice crystals growing out of the mud, though.  It was fun but I just can't imaging trying those trails again given how good the rest of the areas are.  8 miles in 1:55.  Then ventured to the south parking lot and added on a much quicker 10 miles in 1:25, although I didn't have much energy for an hour or so.  18 miles total with 2900 ft climbing.  28 deg at the start (brrr), 54 at the finish. Finished with the traditional Dunkin Donuts before driving home.

AM- 12 around my house on a windy, chilly morning.  Left achilles was a bit tender.
