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- great weather today (minimal wind, overcast, upper 60's) so 18 people showed up. I guarded Graham all game. Everyone played much better than last week- fewer drops and bad throws. A lot of the turnovers were off contested throws rather than bad plays. I had 2 blocked throws and 1 or 2 bad passes but otherwise played great- some good long throws, good short/medium throws, no drops. Even teams, but my team won 5-2. 5v5 for the next game, with me and Dave switching to the other team. We got down 2-0 (mainly due to a few key mistakes by Claire, plus I overthrew Tom once in the endzone), but we scored twice and made a defensive stop on the last point. However, we immediately turned it over near their endzone and they scored for the win.

It wasn't supposed to rain today. But then it did rain. Again. Of course. One of my coworkers told me it's rained every Friday since November.

AM- first run in 1.5 weeks. PF isn't feeling a lot better but I figured it was time to go anyway. I brought my headlamp but didn't need it. 8 miles on wet/muddy GE trail. Saw about 18 turkey and 8+ deer, no people. Good to be out there again.

Nice day for frisbee, slight breeze, sunny. 12 people showed up, though Benson hurt his hand and Dave left early so we ended up 5v5. My team was generally playing well but started making some mistakes (bad throws) during the game and were soon down 3-1 and 4-2. We rallied with 2 points (4th point was a beauty throw from Graham to Sam). Lost 5-4 in the end. Tom (other team) made some nice defensive plays on long throws to Sam. I played well- 1 or 2 incomplete passes, but otherwise no real mistakes. I did miss a very hard hammer catch and landed with my elbow on the lip of the disc, which hurts. But fun day. Looks like rain again Friday, so probably won't play.

AM 50 deg morning run. Saw a few GE workers but no one on the trail. Several groups of turkeys, including a big Tom, who I haven't seen in a while. 7-10 deer. 8 miles or so

AM- strong thunderstorms today (I got soaking wet in my 15 second dash from car to office) so I ran 8 miles on treadmill. Continues the tradition of rain on every Friday. I just hope my kids can finally play their sports tomorrow (T-ball tonight for 2 of my kids is already cancelled, meaning they have not even had a practice yet- every practice has been cancelled!!!). It doesn't look good as it rained hard in the morning and it's raining again for a few hours at lunch. It's rained 80 inches in the past year, folks. 80 inches. It's absurd.
