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!

Lunch- 19 people today so we played 2 fields. Low 40's, overcast, minimal wind. My team was me, Adrian, Tom, Claire, and Kevin, so pretty stacked. We won the first game fairly easily, as I would have expected. I overthrew Tom a few times in the endzone and dropped one hard catch, but otherwise played well. For the championship game, the other team was stacked- Graham, Matt Page, Verdin, Dave, and Tye. They got up 2-1, but then I think they got a bit tired and slowed up, so we scored 4 straight for the win. Our team played well together today with not too many mistakes. 

I woke up at 4:38 am again today. In the past 5 days, I've only slept more than 4 hours once. When I wake up early, my brain is thinking too much and too stressed out about work to get back to sleep. I'm working some very stressful, high visibility, critical projects right now that are all a mess, so it's definitely an adventure.
