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 holy slow, slogged around almost 75 min at 8:15 and slower pace. Very warm and humid, almost 70 deg at sunrise. 9 miles.

No run today, in Columbia most the day, then appts around home.

The year of rain is going out with a bang, 3.5 inches of rain today (and it's only 5 pm), almost 8 inches this week. The creek by our house is normally about 4 feet wide and under a foot deep, but flooded to several hundred feet wide and 6 feet deep earlier today, almost taking out the concrete bridge. It's crazy. We've had 65 inches of rain since the start of June! My phone keeps buzzing to tell me of multiple flood warnings and flash flood warnings right now.

AM- Dropped off the 3 youngest at the gym babysitter, then did 10 on the treadmill.

Happy New Year, eveyone!

Here's my running info from 2007 when I joined the FRB. My mileage has a strong downward trend the past few years. And my 1 race this year was by far the fewest ever, though not the lowest racing miles, as it takes a lot of 5k's to equal one 100.

My longest run after June last year was 10.0 miles. Forced rest and recovery. Now that it's a new year, my restriction is gone. I didn't intend to go longer right away, but I felt so good on this run with spry legs and great weather (60 deg, no rain) that I ran 10.5 miles in 76 min. I'm still not racing for at least 6 more months, though. That would mean a whole year of no racing, and 2 years of no competitive racing (yes, Western States 100 was non competitive).

PM- several of us have a bit of stomach issues today. By the late afternoon, I felt mine had settled enough to do a short run without needing to carry a full roll of toilet paper. 4 miles in abour 31 min.
