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- Runs rarely go well the day after fast Sunday, and today was no exception. Slow and thirsty. Did 6 miles averaging 8:30 pace. Hopefully can do longer run tomorrow. I think we finally threw in the towel on ultimate frisbee until this is all over, as GE has enough restrictions that it would be bad optics for us to be out there playing. Sad, but what can you do?

AM- cloudy, breezy, 60 deg. Felt much better today- started at 8 min pace, and last 2 miles were in just under 15 min. Ran around the normal neighborhoods including lots of hills. I saw a turkey on Philips McCall road for the first time ever as it came out of the bushes 20 yards in front of me, ran my way, then turned into some woods. Gmap pedometer says I did 11.11 miles, about 1:29.

Lunch run around the neighborhood. My son biked along. He wanted to stop at 2 miles but I coaxed him to 3, then challenged him to a race of 1 mile (which he won, of course). I'm pretty happy to get him to bike 4 miles. I probably went harder than I should have after a long run, but I'll go easier tomorrow. 4 miles. New shoes.

PM- somewhere between 8.5 to 9 miles on the normal roads. Lots of people out walking and running around the soccer fields, which warms my heart.

Lunch- met Barry at GE trail, first time I've run with him in a long time. Good to have someone to vent with about work stress, life, economic shutdown, etc (just like everyone else, we have salary reductions and mass layoffs coming). 4.5 miles. Saw a couple deer and a few more turkey. Beautiful sunny day.

7.5 around home. Ran along a creek and meet a guy who told me his plans of turning our area into the biggest City in the state. He talked for 30 minutes. Nice guy. 
I'm proud to live in one of 8 states that doesn't have a mandatory shelter in place requirement.
