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- 30 min. Throat feeling a tiny bit better, but the rest of me is a bit worse. Decided to work out anyway.

Lunch- frisbee. 4 on 4 today, so lots of running. I felt better than I thought I would. My team went up 4-2 but the other team came back and won 5-4. Doh. The grass is dormant now so it's rather rough and scratchy when you slide on it now.

Lunch- frisbee Monday. 5 vs 6, my team was down a person, and holy crap did we have to run a lot. Fun times. We represented well considering we were down a person. In the final game, the other team went up 4-2, then we tied it up before they finally won 5-4. Fun day.

There was a good movie on so I stayed on the bike extra, for almost 90 minutes. The movie was Runaway, with Denzel Washington. Made the time go fast.

Frisbee. Cold but fun. However, my team lost 5-2 (or 5-3?), then I switched sides and my new team lost. I was the only loser.

Lunch- We had 6-7 people so played Box for a while, then number 8 showed up and we played regular ultimate. Windy and cool, but fun. I had a 1 pm meeting where I was presenting to a customer, so I had everyone show up 30 min early. For the actual games, my team won 3-1, then lost 2-0, then won 2-1. Fun times, though my hands are bruised from blocking so many cold frisbee throws. Worth it.

Almost went to the gym at 5 am before remembering they open at 6:30 on weekends. Broke out of a run- 70 minutes! 

Merry Christmas, everyone! It's the most wonderful time of the year (and I love that Andy Williams song).

Speaking of songs, here's 2 on my Christmas playlist right now.

Anyone know how to embed these? I used to be able to do it...

As I won't run the rest of the year, it looks like I'll finish with 1702 running miles for the year. I used to be 3000+ most years, with a high just under 4000 miles. And almost all of my miles this year came in the first half of the year. This darn Achilles is really starting to annoy me.
