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!

I was supposed to go to Paris Mtn for the first time since October, but my shingles is acting up and I've got something very swollen and hard at the top of my left thigh. Not sure if it's a lymph node or what, but it hurts. Plus, I ended up having a long day at work, almost 11 hrs. I did get a run at the very end of the day. I was thinking I'd have to bike due to my leg but ended up doing 6 miles. Felt ok.

AM- wanted an hour but felt pretty bad so it looked doubtful. General fatigue plus signs of my shingles coming back didn't make it fun. But I got 8 miles, all 8:15 pace or thereabouts.

No workout. My shingles nerve pain has come back, and wearing slacks for work rubs my scabs constantly, so they are not healing and infected, with a super swollen lymph node near my thigh/groin makes walking or running or bending my leg painful. So no workour today. Tomorrow doesn't look good, either.

I really don't like shingles.

Lunch- went to work at lunch just so I could play frisbee. Nice day of 7v7 with almost no wind, though first hot day of the year (80+ deg). Even battle, my team won 5-2, then 5v5 game won 3-1.
