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- perfect day for frisbee, 65 deg, sunny, a little breeze. My team had better throwers, the other team had a little more speed. We ran a hard zone and the other team was ill suited to break it, so we killed them. 5-1, then 3-1. I had a few bad throws at first, but then just did easy throws, had some good catches (several long scores), and some good def with several knockdowns in the end zone.

Lunch- great day for a run for 2 reasons. First, after almost 2 months, the GE trail reopened so I ran on my beloved dirt again. Second, it's sunny and 75 deg. Wonderful. I did 9 miles on the trail, at least half around 8 min pace. No animals, lots of people as I ran at lunch instead of my typical morning slot. The thing I found most interesting is that there are 2 new large areas of standing water (aka swamps) complete with lots of croaking frogs. It hasn't rained in 6 days, so it's an overall reflection of how wet the past year has been and how high the water table is.

Lunch- a small rainstorm kept people away but 6 brave souls showed up today. Granted, it was still 65 deg, so good temps. Windy, but not as much as last week. 3v3. My team was a bit faster, the other team better throwers. The other team got up 0-2, then 4-2, then we tied 4-4 before losing 5-4. Lots of turnovers. I had lots of defensive plays but not quite enough. Wind always makes throws an adventure.

AM working from home the next few days as Marci and my two oldest are going to Orlando. Grabbed a quick run from home before starting work. Well, not quick regarding speed- 5 miles around 9 min pace. Pretty slow and tired.

Wife and 2 oldest kids are at Disney World for the weekend, so I'm home with 3 younger kids. No chance to run. I did take my son to see Monster Jam, so that was fun.
