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- 5v5 frisbee game. True to form, whichever team plays terrible at the start (mine, today) ends up winning the final game. We won 5-0. It was one of my better days in a while with some good luck on catches.

So today is our 13th wedding anniversary. We celebrated by spending $1600 on car repairs, not eating the turkey Marci prepared (it wasn't finished 8 hours after putting it in the crockpot so we had a pizza instead), and dealing with ornery kids all evening. Yeah for anniversaries. Maybe we'll actually go on a date or spend a few minutes together at a future anniversary.

PM- after picking up my car, I went to the gym. Planned to run 6 miles, but felt good so did 8. First time over 6 miles in 4 months. Progress. Then did a bit of biking.

Lunch- ran 3 miles with Barry, then frisbee. Windy day, 7v7 plus subs. I couldn't catch squat today, missed some nice ones right in my breadbasket. Still fun. We were a bit outmanned but still won 5-4. Thanks to the wind and drops by everyone, it was the longest game ever. Instead of the usual 10-15 minutes, it took 25. I think the score was 1-0 after 10 minutes. Long field, lots of running.

AM- 6 slow and tired, but got in a run. 8-8:30 pace.

I've been listening to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History podcast again. This time I'm on King of King series about ancient Persians. Very interesting.
