Today's Workouts

14 steamy miles on the trails. Felt like a rain forest out there. Wore my Asics Trail Attack running shoes. Legs were tired from yesterday's long run but not as sore as I thought they would be.

Wildlife count: 4 does, lots of horseflies and too numerous to count; bushy-tailed rats. Surprisingly I saw zero psycho Woodchucks or should I say Groundhogs to keep Jess happy?

How about a compromise? We go with either Woodhogs or Groundchucks..deal? Which one do we like better?

Ok, I have to ask. Does all this extreme exercise shorten your functionality in later life? Do athletes who push their bodies like you do - have any problems when they are older, or by maxmizing your fitness all the time are you likely to be able to keep it up well into your 80s?

And are you an ultramarathoner? If Sam had to choose an extreme sport as a metaphor for mothering a large family what would she choose? I am going to write a book about mothers of large families and I am thinking about the extreme sport metaphor as an introductory vehicle.

Hmmm... Woodhogs sound like selfish little critters.

Groundchucks, on the other hand, sound delicious.
