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!

AM Low 20's temp with low teens windchill- coldest run in a long time. 6 miles. Felt generally ok. Happy New Years, everyone.

AM- it is 10 deg outside, only 5 above the all time record low, and I don't have my real cold gear out of storage, so I did 8 miles on the treadmill. Pretty much sums up my life right now.

AM- new pair of shoes, time to phase out of the old. Shoes last a lot longer when you only run half the mileage. 6 miles on the treadmill as I didn't want to run in the cold.

Lunch- great game of 6v6 frisbee today. Frozen ground made for hard, slippery footing. My team was down 4-2 but scored 3 straight to win. Good way to start the year.

7.5 on the deadmill. Planned on 8-9 but my foot started twinging a bit so I cut it short.

AM 7. It was 13 deg this morning so I ran inside again.

Lunch- frisbee on a sunny, cold, barely-windy day. 7v7 with a sub on each team. We played to a 2-2 tie, then the next point took so long that most people had to leave when my team finally scored, so we called it a 3-2 win. It was 15 minute point or so. Then we had a 4v4 game that my team won 3-0. My left ring finger got hit and is very swollen, discolored, and painful.
