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!

PM- PM with Barry and Seth. Seth and I were sick and slow. 50's, cloudy, misty, a bit rainy- felt pretty nice, though my glasses kept fogging up. Still fun. Not much traffic on the trails, of course.

Are you fired up for the SC primary? I sometimes miss living in a state that matters politically.

I'm just glad I don't watch TV so I don't have to see all these ads. I wish the polling phone calls would stop (they call about every hour some days). As for the primary, I'm not voting. Blasphemy, I know. I voted for Ron Paul 4 years ago, but I don't like any of the candidates this time so will abstain. Lest you get upset, I'm sure I'll vote in the general election, although will likely leave the president slot empty.

If I did vote, I'd most likely vote in the democratic primary for Bernie rather than the republican primary. Not that I like him- I don't at all, not at all. But I'd much, much rather see him elected than Hillary. I look at all the candidates and am saddened to think one of these people will be elected in November. Personally, I think anyone who wants to run for a high office should automatically be blocked. I think our country would be better off if all of Congress and the President were randomly chosen from the phone book for 1 term each- you'd be less likely to get narcissistic, egomanic, sociopathic/psychopatic, power and money-seeking politicians that we have today.

Hmm, I might have just shared my true feelings about government officers. Strong views, but I honestly believe what I just wrote.
