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- I didn't have to be at work till 9 but woke up at 5, and missed a run this week, so decided to run GE trail. Coldest run since last winter- 32 deg. 1 loop GE trail. Saw 6 deer, 2 coyotes (one who took similar path as me so I saw him 4 times over a mile), and 26 turkeys. I think that's the most turkeys ever. They were at the turnaround point, and included 1 tom, which is the first male I've seen in a year or so. Of course, he puffed up but I was 50 yards away so he didn't chase.

Lunch- some games are ugly, and some games are worse. Today was worse. Very muddy field, 14 people, lots of turnovers but especially lots of bad throws by my team.We threw it over a dozen time to Alex on the other team. It was terrible. The only good thing about my game was I didn't drop any. But it was ugly. I think we lost 5-1, maybe 5-2. Then we did game to 3, where my team had 6 people and other team had 5. I thought we were down 2-0 and lost 3-1, but the other team said it was 2-1 so we kept playing and, despite our best efforts to repeatedly throw it away, we did win 3-2. Ugly.
