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!

Good run today.  I ran around Providence a bit, then headed over to Providence canyon via Spring Creek Road.  I intended to run to Millville, but Providence canyon in the moonlight just looked like too much fun. 

I ran about 1 mile up the very snow-packed and somewhat icy Providence canyon (11 minutes for 1 mile- not too bad supposing it is almost 500 feet up in 1 mile, plus I was running on a slick surface in the dark).  Very pretty canyon and I could actually see quite well in the dark.  I'll definitely have to do it again this winter, though I may buy some yak-trax first.  Ran down via canyon road.  I found that mapmyrun.com now has topo and elevation calculations- they said I went up 1025 feet and down 1038 feet.  Hmm, guess I'm in the basement of my house now or something :)

9 miles total, 1:10:50.  Fun run, felt good.  Cold and dark.  Hopefully it snows a lot tomorrow- makes for funner runs, plus Christmas is coming!

9 miles around Providence, Logan, and River Heights.  Found some good dirt trail spaces in and among the neighborhoods.

Met Paul at planetwalk- ran it once, then ran some on the golf course.  It was snowing and everything looked pink thanks to the lights relecting.  It is always very enjoyable and tranquil to run in new fallen snow.  Ran home with Paul, then back for more running on the golf course.  Pace ranged between 7-ish on the paved stuff to slower on the grass/snow.

Skipped work today.  6 miles during the day (ah, glorious sunshine) on planetwalk.  Legs felt heavy and sluggish, but my pace was actually still decent.  Felt like 8 min miles, actually was ~7 min miles.

15 degrees and snowing big flakes my whole run in Idaho Falls- 4 inches of new snow, and the roads were very slippery and snowpacked.  Ran a few miles around community park (7:02 pace), then ran to Tautphaus park.  Found someone had made a snowshoe track loop, so I followed that for 15 minutes.  Hard going in the new snow with crunchy snow underneath.  Then ran to the river and almost to the temple.  Ran home.  The way home was 7:20 pace.  Average for the run was around 7:15 pace.
