Personal:

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!

PM- got out after the kid's bedtime for a run at the gym. 7 miles. Alternated watching MNF and Return of the Jedi, so that was a good variety.

Weights and biking. Knee still bugging me.

Hope everyone votes. Choose between a corrupt rich old white guy with credible sexual assault accusations and severe mental concerns, or a corrupt rich old white guy with credible sexual assault accusations and severe mental concerns

11 people at frisbee. My team had a sub. Warmup was good which portends poorly for me. Sure enough, I had tons of turnovers on what should have been easy throws (at least I caught well, not missing one). I was terrible and my whole team had issues. We lost 1-5 and then 0-3. Blah. Still fun though.

Wonderful day for frisbee- sunny, 70 deg, small breeze. My team had issues with short and long throws and lost the first game 1-5. I don't think I had any bad throws, which was nice. We won 3-2 for the second game.

PM- 6 miles. Didn't feel overly fast but I was moving pretty good- all 8 min or faster. 47:10.

After getting home, I found out there would be frisbee 90 min later. I was pretty sore/tired but went. 8 people. The first point took a long time. Eventually my team was up 4-2 at which point it took about 10 minutes for the next point, which the other team scored. Then we won 5-3. Pretty dang tired after that.

PM- 13 people at frisbee, including Alex (first game in 1.5 years). My team had 7 players, including all 3 teenagers, other team had 6. However, one of ours stopped early so it was 3 adults and 3 teens against 6 adults. We battled well but ended up losing 5-3. Fun time.

Only had time for 6 miles at the end of the day before it closed. I wish I had 30 more minutes to weightlift. Maybe I can get it in tomorrow before I take all 5 kids to Dollywood for the weekend.

AM Allen family turkey trot. We ran (with some walking for some of the kids) 3 miles on the GE trails. Also saw 3 turkeys by the trail right at the start, so that was neat. The turkey trot was my wife's idea, and she even ordered custom medals online once we saw there would be no official races.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone

Lunch- nice day for frisbee, mid-60's and sunny with minimal wind. 4v5, my team had the extra person (Noah). Generally everyone played poorly- lots of bad throws and drops. I had lots of bad throws, just one drop. My team was ahead 4-2 but lost 5-4, then we won 3-2 for the second game.
