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- 8.5.  Back home and into the normal routine.

PM- 9.5 more.  I decided to give it a go and run a few fast miles (my first sub-7 miles since OV50).  I did 3 Tinman miles and they felt good- almost too easy.

AM- Ran with Paul and Cody on dirt roads/trails from Paul's house in Smithfield down to Logan Canyon and back.  About 20 deg and steady snow (2-3 inches fell while we ran), which was enjoyable but made for slow going.  I really love snow running, and this was the first of the year.  Saw the new fishing pond at Green Canyon- not sure what to make of it.  Paul had the great idea of doing a Green Canyon triathlon, though the swim would be short.  The bike and run would be fantastic, though.  I am jealous how many nice dirt trails Paul has right by his house. 

Paul did 15 miles, then Cody and I did a few more, including on the ice sheet known as Birch Canyon (note: do not run on it again till spring).  Cody even tested out the slickness with his hand and hip.  21.25 miles total, according to Cody, so I'll round down (yes, I do round down sometimes).  Total time was slow, over 3 hours- I think Cody said about 8:40 pace.  Thanks for the run, guys- nice to run on some good trails with the guys.
