Personal:

I used to run competitively, and maybe I will do so again someday.  Right now I am primarily running to try and get in better shape, and to maintain both physical and emotional health, but also for the simple joy that comes when I run.

I am also the proud daddy of five little ones.  I love the opportunity that I have to be a daddy, and my challenge is to balance my family responsibilities with work and running.

Total time of 56:17 for approximately 7 miles.

In Alpine.  I ran towards the mountain, and ended up running up the mountain as I entered the national forest and hit a hiking trail about 0.6 miles before it was time for me to turn around.  Going up the mountain it was all I could do to just keep running, with estimates from my watch indicating that I was running anywhere from 11:00-15:00 mile pace while going up the mountain.  I ended up gaining between 1200-1300 ft elevation during the run, with almost all of that coming during the first half of the run.

Running down the mountain was tricky due to the steep grades and rocks, but I ended up staying on my feet.  I picked up the pace a little bit after I got back on the roads and had run another half mile or so down the mountain, as a loose dog was wandering around and I did not want it to get too close to me.  My legs felt kind of thrashed from the steepness of the grade I was running downhill, so I will probably be a little sore tomorrow.
