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- 30's and raining (we've had over 13 inches of rain since Dec 1, so rather wet). 8 miles on treadmill. Started at 8:40 pace, finished at 7:40. Felt generally ok. No running yesterday likely helped that.

Legs feeling beat up so did 30 min ellipticating, then weights. Then stretching/foam rolling. Now time to work.

Cold day for frisbee and windy- only 8 people showed up. My team did our best to lose and indeed we did in the end, but made it closer than it could have been. I had a lot of bad throws in the warmup but only had a couple during the game (and everyone did thanks to the wind). Headband Joe had the dropsies- I think he dropped 5 or 6 easy catches, several of which were in the endzone. It was pretty comical and consistent. We were down 4-2, clawed back to 4-4, but lost 5-4.

20th birthday party for the gym at work, so did an hour of games and eating cake. I won 3 competitions (wheelbarrow race, 3-leg race, and dizzy bat) complete with gift cards. Then did frisbee. Coldest day of the winter, low 30's and a breeze. 9 people at first so we played 4v5, my team had 5. Then another person showed up- we probably should have even uped the teams but didn't. My team lost 5-2. We had some shots but did not have enough speed and had enough bad throws/turnovers to lose. Still fun.
