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!

6v5 frisbee on an overcast day with damp ground. We actually played all 11, with my team a bit faster but only having 5 players. We held our own and perhaps were even winning. Just as the game to 5 started, Dave twisted his ankle from my team and left. We picked up Verdin for even 5v5. Other team scored, then Jeff dropped an easy pass, and we were down 0-2. Played pretty even from there on, although overall the other team played very clean game and we made a few mistakes- I had a bad turnover when we were down 3-4 and we quickly lost 3-5. I felt like we let one get away as we could have won but had too many self-inflicted wounds.

Great day for frisbee- 50 deg, sunny, slight breeze. 13 people, other team had a sub. My team was struggling at first with poor throws and drops. Sam got on a tear and threw or caught 4 or 5 straight points. In the game to 5, there were no turnovers at first till 2-2 score. Then it got a bit sloppy but my team won 5-3 in the end. 12 people stayed for another game. The other team scored first, but then we scored 3 straight to win 3-1.

AM 6 ez, around 8:30 pace

Had cake and ice cream after lunch with a bunch of coworkers. Out of the ~15 of us there, 3 will be gone from the company this week and 2 more by end of the month. My inbox is filled with emails from other people saying it's their last day. Sad times. But really not much to do other than buckle down and get to work, while realizing that it's just a job so keep it in perspective. But the amount of empty cubes around here (heck, whole empty rows) is stunning. My best friend at GE, and the only guy I can really talk to, is leaving for another division this month, too. The only thing constant is change.

It's been said more games are lost than won, and my team proved that today. 18 people, 2 subs per team. We did fine in warm up, but then during game to 5 we were doing hard throws, stupid throws, and hard AND stupid throws. Predictably, we had a lot of turnovers. Lost 5-2. I even bruised my thigh on Alex's knee, so I'm pretty sore. After, we had 6v5 game to 3, my team won 3-1 (having an extra person helps).

Run in a drizzle. Quad is fairly sore so only ran 2 miles. It hurt a bit less by the end.
