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 8. Felt pretty good. Started at 8 pace but was at or below 7:30 by mile 2 for the remainder of the run

Lunch frisbee. Humid. The teams were even, but the other team had some very unfortunate turnovers near their endzone, such that my team won 5-0. Not often we have a shutout.

AM 7. Started 8:30-ish, finished 7:45-ish. That's something I've noticed over the past few years- I generally have to start slower, and may or may not speed up as the run progresses. I used to run normal pace right from the start, now I almost always start slow.

No run but lots of hiking/walking, including in my old favorite, DuPont State Forest, to see some waterfalls with family.

AM- 8. Felt good- most my miles were 7:30-ish

Lunch- frisbee. Way too many people- 21- meant we had 3 and 4 subs per team, which is way too much sitting and makes cohesion hard. My team wasn't playing well and lost the first game 5-2. Second game of 5v5 went better- we won 3-1. Very tired.

In Outer Banks NC for the week. Only got in 1 run, but I felt good during it. I guess this is a recovery week from little training working towards no goals... :)
