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!

Lunch- it snowed about three inches this morning, so I worked from home then braved the (not too bad) roads for lunch frisbee. It was a fun 3v3 game, so lots of running and not many cuts. My team won 5-2. Unfortunately, I was in charge of a meeting right after frisbee but had forgotten my work clothes, so put my wet clothes back on and worked from the gym for 3 hours. First time that's ever happened.

This being the south, school is cancelled yesterday, today, and tomorrow due to the minor dusting of snow. The roads were clear around town by Wednesday night, but the district includes some of the foothills near the NC border, and if there are icy roads anywhere, they cancel for everyone. Don't get me started.

Anyway, ran 6 miles on snowy, wet GE trails late afternoon. Ran by 3 deer and saw 1 coworker.

GE is in the news for all the wrong reasons right now, which is a bit unnerving. Talk of breakup, underfunded pension, layoffs, mismanagement, etc. Sad to see an icon imploding, and rough to be attached to it. More and more coworkers and friends are leaving.

Up late last night so skipped morning run. Nice day for lunch frisbee, sunny and 50 deg. 7v7. My team was getting beat at first, but, true to the past, we pulled it together for the real game and won 5-3.
