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- no yoga due to meeting. 11 people for frisbee, my team had the sub. 50 deg, sunny, brisk wind. 3-3 with lots of drops but then my team won 5-3. It was a bit stacked in our favor, to be fair.

Am bike and stretch

PM- chiro, then I did a 3 mile walk with Barry on the trails behind GE. We decided that since we aren't running together anymore, we can walk and talk. In the last few yards, we saw a black snake that had just caught a squirrel and was eating it. The head was barely in the snake's mouth when we arrived, so we watched the whole show. Took about 5 minutes. Pretty cool.

AM- I finally ran. Granted, it was only 1 lap of the .68 mile GE track, but I ran. My back is starting to feel better. Lots of stretching/rehab

Lunch- 6v6 frisbee- warm (upper 70's) and breezy. My team was playing poorly during the warmup but killed it at the start of the real game, getting up 4-1. However, the other team scored 3 straight to tie it up. On the last point, I got a few yards heading deep after a turnover and Chris threw it long- I caught it a yard short of the end zone. 2 passes later, my team won 5-4. Fun day.

Lunch- yoga and frisbee. 60 deg, sunny, slight breeze. Perfect. 6v6, other team had a sub. They had one more fast guy than us, and we had a brand new guy. Not surprisingly, we lost 5-3. Then lost 3-2. Very fun, as always, though.

no yoga due to meeting, just frisbee. The other team had 1 more fast guy than my team, and my team had a brand new guy who couldn't do much (not making excuses, just observations shared by the other team). My team lost 5-3 (13 people, we had no sub), then 8 of us played and my team lost 3-2

AM Aspen biked while I ran 1.5 miles. Felt ok. Then we saw a movie together. We bought 2 MoviePass in January. I've seen over 25 movies this year.
