Personal:

Born in 1973 in Southern California.

Ran in high school for Arcadia. They have a famous cross-country team now. In my day, we were famous for dodging our coach during runs.

Over the next 15 years I ran very little, but life was awesome. I lived mostly in Northern California, where I met my wife. We moved back to her native state of Florida in 2005, where I gradually started running more seriously.

When I got home from work I told my wife: "I have a weird request. I just need to lay down and sleep a little bit. Please. Take the kids for one more half-hour, and I'll take over. And I'll be good for the rest of the night."

So I took that time and had the crazy micro-nap dreams and woke up fairly functional.

Early AM tempo with Christia and Mike G. Ego kick-in-the-pants #10000 to be that guy hanging on to the back of the pack.

6 miles at lunch with Quint. Today Anna turned five and we gave her a big plastic horse. Yesterday, since our office is near TPA, I looked out the window and saw Donald Trump's plane landing. You can tell because there is a huge T painted on the tail.

A zero. I brought my running clothes to work but was overwhelmed.

This has happened a lot in 2016, It's a trade-off that *might* make sense in the short term, but it's definitely not the way I want to live my life.

We have a 9 wk old puppy, not as tiring as an infant, but similar ballpark.

8 miles at 10am with Quint, complaining about the heat never gets old.
