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 5 watching recap of the games yesterday. Foot a bit twingy so kept it shorter

Lunch- 15 people today for a upper-50's day of frisbee. My team had more unforced errors and lost 5-2.

AM 6. A couple deer, and the turkeys from a distance. I upped some of my weights today, including dead lift, and now my back is rather sore.

Lunch- Most days of frisbee are rather fun. Some are very fun. Today was neither. Blah. Not well played by my team, just not as much fun. Lost 5-2.

Morning meeting with GE Power CEO (who told us it's not a funeral, that there will be no raises this year (that's 3 out of 4 year with no pay increases), and basically said he hopes more people will leave). Fun start to the day- it gave us something to talk about.

Lunch- 6 miles on GE trails. No animals, quite a few people. Reverse from normal.

Lunch- today was Jim Harper's last day at GE, as well as a memorial run for Todd. Todd was the founder and captain of the GE Greenville running team for over 10 years, taking it from nothing to the dominant regional power (2 win streaks of 40+ races, over 800 members), so people came to cheer him on, too, including signs. I ran 1 mile with the group then went to Frisbee. It was a nice day- 18 people. Some hard-fought points. My team was doing poorly at the start. Sure enough, we won 5-4.
