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!

Lunch- first run since the race. It had been raining for two days so it was muddy and sloppy everywhere, so Todd, Barry, and I went to MZCS on the XC course, slopping around the water and mud. I kept splashing the guys. I have been getting sick and right after this run really went downhill, with a fever and chills. Spent the rest of the day in bed.

Went to bed at 9 pm last night, my earliest in years. Morning run with Jason and the in-town Justin at Paris Mtn. 28 deg at the start. My stuffy sinuses got pretty unhappy after an hour and started hurting above and behind my right eye bad enough to slow me down. Felt better after a nap and Tylenol. Good to see Justin again. 10.5, 1600, 2 hrs.

Put in my Barkley essay. Find out later this week if I'm in or not. Odds aren't in my favor and the lottery gods haven't been kind to me, but maybe I'm due.

AM- It was 0 deg and foggy in Logan today which means nasty inversion. Fortunately, it was a balmy 31 deg in Greenville when I ran my 6 miles.  Legs were cold but I felt much better than yesterday, minimal sinus pain.

AM- Jim had invited me to run one of the famous road courses around here, Altamont Rd. We met at BOP, ran up and over, then back, plus a bit of off trail adventuring at the end. I'm not in great shape but heard about Jim's recent flight on a private jet to a race. Just under 15 miles and 2200 ft climbing in just over two hours.
