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!

Didn't run yesterday to rest my niggles. Got together with some folks today for ultimate frisbee- I think there were 19 of us at the max. Great day, sunny and 80 deg. Fun, fun times. Played for 90 minutes. Verdin came from work. My team lost the first game 8-11, won the second 5-2. Right quad was really sore. I donated blood yesterday but didn't feel the normal post donation fatigue so I guess that's good.

Lunch- had a very nice game of frisbee with about 10 GE folks and 6 or so people from my church plus my wife. We didn't split the teams very evenly- the other team had an extra player and better players. My team lost 5-1 then 3-1. So much fun to be back out there. Quad is sore again, but much less so than after last Saturday.

Lunch- sunny, warm day. Did 4 miles with Barry on the GE trails. We solved all of the world's problems, or at least all of the Covid-related ones. Then I did 4 more by myself. 7 mph avg.

Lunch frisbee with GE folks and a few others. It was warm, 80+ deg and sunny. Lots of people at the park, including what appeared to be 30 or so high schoolers getting ready for football. Teams were even but we got spanked the first game 2-5, then won the second 3-1.

PM- 4 miles in under 8:30 pace. Found another break in the rain so stayed pretty dry. Cool and windy, though. Flood warning continues till tomorrow (8-10 inches expected Monday thru Thursday). We had hotels this weekend booked for both Pigeon Forge and SC beach and will likely cancel both due to bad weather.

PM- 6 on a very muggy day. We are within spitting distance of setting an all-time rainfall record for the month of May. The record is 13 inches, and we are over 12.5. More rain tonight and tomorrow, too. Went to my son's baseball practice tonight, with games starting on Saturday.

Lunch frisbee on a very muggy day. It rained this morning, so the field was completely muddy with many puddles. Fun time, though my team struggled more. We were tied 3-3 in the first game before losing 5-3. Second game was tied 2-2, and we had two drops in the end zone, before losing 3-2.
