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 2.5 on the treadmill but my foot still isn't great so i stopped early and did 15 min biking. Blah. 

Lunch- frisbee- 12 of us- The teams weren't perfectly divided and mine was a bit worse, though we still had our chances but didn't play as well as we should have. We lost 5-3.

PM- solo mid-afternoon run at Paris Mtn. It was in the low 60's the whole time- beautiful, and 30 deg warmer than the past 2 weeks. Very slow pace, trails quiet the first half, then lots of people the remainder. 11 or so miles. No idea on the time. I like not running with a watch.

AM 6 on GE trail. 8 or 9 deer. I finished the Hardcore History WWI series and am now onto the Persian series. Looking forward to hitting the final one, number 60. It's the only one I've never listened to.

Work continues to deteriorate. Lots of key people are leaving for other companies, on top of the layoffs. Jim Harper, who I've run thousands of miles with on the LR group, is leaving, plus Mike Fedor. I feel like the company may enter a death spiral at some point, where enough key people are gone that the remainder can't do the work, causing them to leave. This isn't fun.

Lunch- frisbee game. Another hard game- we got a little chippy. A few of the points were so long that when the score was 4-3, we said next point wins. My team scored, so we won 4-4. That was a first.

AM- 8 on GE trails on a cool, rainy morning. Drizzled the whole time. No people or animals till near the end, when I ran into the whole stinking flock of stupid turkeys. They did not seem happy (watched them attack a passing truck) so I re-routed off-road to exit GE through a fence and run the road past them. Not real fast, typical for these days. I don't know my actual distance, but I think I ran 66 minutes. One of these days I'll charge my GPS watch to actually map the trail.

AM 6 on the GE trails. Wet and muddy. Saw 1 deer, no other animals

Lunch- Temp in the 60's with a steady rain at the start that gradually stopped. 8 people showed up to play on a very muddy field. Cutting was an issue but fun dives weren't. My team lost 3-2.
