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!
Lunch- frisbee. 9 people, so 4v4 with a sub on the other team. Fairly fair teams, though the new guy on the other team made some key mistakes in the game to 5, so my team won 5-1. Played another game, and my team lost 3-2.

Have you watched "Where Dreams Go to Die" yet?

No. Been meaning to. I know the story pretty well, though.
You watch it?
My favorite quote from his race report this year:
We were essentially fording a river, through a tunnel, at night, under a prison. It was right about then that I started questioning where I’d gone wrong with my life? Up until that point I'd mostly believed that I'd made reasonably good decisions with my life, but in retrospect, my epiphany was that I’d just managed a positive spin on a series of really bad decisions. I do really stupid things, and I do them with stunning regularity.

The whole thing is up on youtube now. That's a good quote but I think he's being a little hard on himself!
