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 4 miles with Ken and Heather on GE trail. 1 deer, 1 turkery. I also saw 2 female and 8 or 9 baby turkeys on the drive in right by the trail

Lunch- 13 people for frisbee. Other team had a sub. My team definitely had more fast guys, but their team had 4 good long throwers. Very competitive, always within 1 point. My team pulled off the 5-4 win. I had a near collision at full speed with Benson (who broke my ribs once), so am glad to avoid serious injury. I did dive once, though, and came down hard on my elbow, leaving my ribs a little sore.

The canadian geese had a huge party on the field- it has poop everywhere. Anytime you went to the ground you came up smeared in goose poop. Lovely.

My last game for 3 weeks. I leave tomorrow for 3 weeks in Idaho. My family has been there for 8 days already, while I've been home working and doing the honey-do list till midnight every day.

AM 7 miles around home. 8:30-8:40 pace. I continue to sleep poorly- 4 hours last night. I wake up around 4 or 5 every morning and am rarely able to fall asleep again. Weather was quite nice today- not too humid, a touch of cool (75 deg- I guess that's cool these days). Of course, my runs the next 3 weeks will be significantly cooler and less humid.

AM- invented a big loop out of Ammon. The in-laws new house is not in a as-runner-friendly location as they used to live. Loop ended up being just under 8.5 miles in just under 70 minutes. Felt pretty good, but I want to be cautious for injuries.

AM  nice morning run with Jeff Shadley. I think it was our first together in 6 years?!? Enjoyable company. lots of good conversation, and cool weather makes for my fastest run in a long time. Jeff's watch showed us around 7:30 pace for the first 4 or 5 miles before we slowed towards the end. 8.5 miles in 71 minutes. Great to see Jeff again.

AM 4 very slow miles around Ammon (9+ min pace). Heading to a cabin in Ashton with my family for the rest of the week so no internet or phone, likely.

Am 4 miles around the cabin in Ashton, ID. Dirt roads plus some ATV trail I found. Achilles is really hurting, though, so I'll take a bit off.

Lunch- 15 people for frisbee. My team was outmanned (2 newest players)- other team even offered to trade to make it more even. I was pretty tired- it wasn't too hot, but very humid. My team was down 4-2 but scored 3 straight for the win.

Lunch- frisbee. 21 people, so we set up 2 fields for the first time this year. My team won the first game 5-3. For the championship game, we were more stacked than the other team and had some very lucky throws/catches- we quickly got up 4-0 before winning 5-1. Then we did a final game to 3, where my team had 4 players and the other team had 5. My team was down 2-1 but scored the final 2 for a win. 3-0 day today.

Ultimate frisbee 6v6. The other team was definitely more stacked, even offered to trade us some players but we refused. We did ok during the warmup, but I was playing H-O-Double R-I-B-L-E, in particular my throwing. It was bad. Game started and we were quickly down 4-0 before scoring 2 points to make it look a bit more even before they put us out of our misery. It was ugly, and I was the ugliest today.

AM- 4 very, very slow miles on GE trail (9:30 or slower). Achilles hurt, and just tired and slow. I did see a box tortise and 5 or 6 turkeys, half of them babies. I think that's the first baby turkeys I've seen in the wild.
