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- rainy, no frisbee. Went to the gym and ran 12 miles. That is my longest run since June 2016 (I just looked through my whole calendar). Felt fine, started at 8:30 pace and finished just under 8 min. Then did weights and sat in the sauna for 20-30 minutes.

AM 4 miles in nearby neighborhoods. Relaxed and slow after yesterdays longer run.

Got email today that our gym is closing. No more official weight lifting for a while, I guess.

Started feeling a bit sick yesterday- runny nose and sore throat, the signs of a cold (I think/hope). Woke up at 2 am with a killer sore throat and never fell asleep again. Felt pretty bad most of the day but still worked. Did manage to take a 2-3 hour nap. Despite great weather, decided not to run or wear out my body. Going to bed now, hope I sleep better than yesterday.

Lunch- slept a solid 9 hours last night and felt a ton better today though I still have a cough and congestion. Decided to go running today. Ran 3 miles at 9-8:15 pace. Felt pretty good but didn't want to overdo it.

AM 6 easy miles around home. Felt ok, still a bit tired/sick. About 8:40 pace. 

Nice day today- sunny, 87 deg high. Went to GE with the family this afternoon for a 90 minute walk/bike ride.

The wet spring has continued. It rained 4 inches this week in 4 days. We are at 22 inches for the year. That would be on pace for about 90 inches. Impressive.

AM- Marci's running buddy stood her up so I drove over with my 8 year old and his bike. We ran around the soccer fields and a neighborhood. 5 to 5.5 miles. After, we were going to take the family to Lake Conestee but it closed today due to coronavirus so we went back to GE. Explored the bamboo forest and saw some sort of black snake.
