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!

No running again this week, but lots of XT plans (kettle bell training, bike, frisbee, spin class, abs).  6 miles xt today.

Well, I had better than 50% odds of getting into MMT 100, and I didn't.  In face, I'm 3/4 of the way down the wait list.  With an entrants field of 205, I'm number 142 on the wait list.  That doesn't look promising.  At least I can start planning my 2013 schedule now, even if I didn't get either of the 100's I wanted.  Maybe I should run Leona Divide to try racing my way into Western.

Lunch- first spin class of my life. Enjoyable.  Nice to burn a few calories, even if not near as many as I'm consuming this holiday season.

So I just went off the deep end (the plunge has been quick) and inquired with "someone who knows" today regarding how I apply for the Barkley Marathons.  Ever since I had dinner with 30% (at the time) of the finishers in the whole world of this race, it's been on my mind.  Since I didn't get into any of the other races I was contemplating, I figured I might as well try for this one.  I'm just ignorant and stupid enough to want to try it.  I may be stupid, but at least I'm not in denial about it... which would definitely be a worse place to be.  At least for those around me.
