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 Had a work broadcast so I took my phone to the gym and watched it while running. Ran 8.5, felt pretty good, especially towards the end. Would have run more but ran out of time. Started 8:45-ish, finished 7:40-ish.

Dollywood is finally reopening. We have season passes (first time we've ever bought season passes like this). We'll have to wear masks and reserve days, but it's better than nothing.

Met Barry at 3 pm at GE, ran the trail. Rainy day, so wet but only 75 deg. Humid, obviously. Went to the gym and weight lifted later. Good to run with Barry, first time in a few weeks. The world always provides more than enough to talk about.
