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 miles on GE trail. Spiders seem to be gone for the year. 17 deer (most ever?) and 10 turkeys right at the end. Slow, 8:30-9:30 ish.

Lunch- it was rainy but warm (65F), and five brave/hearty/crazy people joined me for frisbee. We were very happy to get enough for a game. Scott, Dave and me vs Sam, Alex, Ty. It was a fun time with the rain going hard to soft and with some wind. A fair number of drops, partly due to the wet disc, and it makes throwing interesting, too. For the game to 5, the other team scored first and we traded points till 2-2, when my team finally broke the other team and scored into the wind. Then the other team scored into the wind, 3-3. There were some long points in here, with the wind and only 2 catchers. Then my team scored, forced a turnover in their endzone, and I ran solo (everyone else was tired) while Scott tossed a bomb to me. I was trying to track the disc over my head and stumbled twice in some of the dips in the field, almost falling. I somehow stayed on my feet and caught the winning point just in the endzone. 5-3 final. Everyone agreed it was a fun day. I dove and slid 4 or 5 times. The first time coated me in goose poop, but subsequent slides removed the poop.

Fun day.

AM 4 miles in 38 deg weather. 8-9 pace. Slow and easy. 

Found out some company news yesterday. About 1/3 of our frisbee players are in GE Renewables and are in a building about 5-10 min from the main plant. Their lease is up and they will be moving to a different building significantly futher away. TBD the impact this will have on frisbee attendance. I sure hope it doesn't kill it.

Lunch 12 people, wet ground and misty/wet in the air, so the frisbee was wet the whole time. Unevenly divided teams- the best 3 throwers were all on the other team. My team could have done well but kept having bad throws and drops. So it was a massacre- 5-1 loss.

Lots of people today on a nice day, 70 deg and slight breeze. 17 people. My team forced some throws and had some bad throws. Tied 2-2 but lost 5-3. 8 people stuck around for a second game. Tied 2-2 when we had an ill-time dropped and immediately lost 3-2.

Am 8 slow miles on trail. 9-ish pace for most of it. 6 deer, no turkey.

PM- played parents vs kids for my 10 year old daughter's soccer practice. Parents won 4-2. I don't think we meant to score the last 2.

AM 4 xt miles as it was supposed to be cold and rainy at lunch, so no frisbee expected

Lunch- despite the weather, we decided to play, though on the second field to not tear up the grass. It was upper 40's, windy, rain/mist. 4v4. My team had a few bad breaks and a few bad throws (both teams did with the wind/rain) and were down 0-3. Fought back to 3-4, but lost 3-5. Could have gone either way. Lots of fun, had a good dive in the mud, too.

AM it was in the 30's and rainy, so I did my first treadmill run in a long, long time (April?). 8 miles. Watching sports and the news gets old.

Lunch- busy day at work, but found a chance to break away at lunch. The relentless cold rain had eased up a bit so I didn't get too wet on GE trail. 2 people, 15 or so turkeys. I didn't feel great so was surprised to see the first mile tick off at 8:00 (I'm probably a bit faster running at noon than first thing in the morning), and I hovered around 7:50-8 the whole time. Then back to work for the rest of a long day, straight to daughter's choir concert, and finally home for dinner at 9 pm.

I was at home watching my 3 year old yesterday while my wife was out of town. No run. It's miserable weather, anyway. Right now it steady rain, windy, and 36 degrees. We are under a flood warning. It's rained almost 6 inches this week, most of that since Monday. It looks like it should be tapering off by mid-day today (finally). I'm at home again this morning as I'm going to elementary school for Thanksgiving lunch with 2 of my kids. Maybe I'll run after work.
