I am a family man.  I am married to my beautiful wife Amy (who also ran at Weber and is quite the runner).  We have three beautiful daughters named Evelyn (6 years old), Hannah (3 year old), and Nora (1 year old). We also have our 4th child due in December.

12 miles with Ben from Smith's at 5:45 a.m. We ran up 4600 to Skyline, to Woodland, down to Eastwood and started a 2-mile pickup on Eastwood to the Dee. I ran 5:25/5:18. Then we backtracked one mile to church on Old Post and then did another two mile pickup past the WSU stadium. I ran 5:21/5:14. Cool down back to Smith's with a small addition to make it 12 miles. One week until STG and all cylinders are firing and ready to go!

Today was the last big workout of the training block for Benny Van and me. It's been a good block, but I'm ready for it to be over and get to the final stage! We warmed up to Beus Trailhead and then did 10k/8k tempo efforts downhill at marathon pace. I ran 33:12 or 5:21/mile for the 10k and 26:48 or 5:23/mile for the 8k. It was a pretty good effort coming off of Saturday's hard workout, so I'm pleased. Ten days until launch!

10 miles easy with Ben, Jared, Dave, and Denver for the first few miles in Layton-Clearfield, avg pace 7:31/mile. Talks of putting up fences and heads exploding from shock.

1.5 miles running along side Evelyn, teaching her how to ride a bike. We went to Hannah's soccer game and back. She's got the hang of it and I only had to catch her once or twice from falling.
