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!

Well, I've finally done it. I'd been having quad/back pain for a while, and I think the Wed/Thursday back to back frisbee games pushed my pains too far. While throwing some frisbees and playing soccer on Saturday, my right ham and quad started hurting so bad I could not run. I did foam roller yesterday, and today I did elliptical, stretch, and some drills while watching the marathon. Hopefully a few days or weeks off will get me back on track.

PM- did some elliptical and stretching after work. Legs are already feeling much better, enough that I gave them a little shake out on the treadmill. Later, I tried playing tag with my kids but still felt enough soreness to stop. No frisbee tomorrow.

AM- XT then stretch, then a trip to the chiropractor.

Black Thursday- Mass layoffs among engineers at GE Power today. My team lost 40% of fellow application engineers, the guy sitting 1 cube down is gone, 2 former teammates, 4 people in the team I work with... it goes on and on. 17 in my department. It's an absolute bloodbath. There were 11 engineers doing what I do on my team 3 years ago. Now there's 3 of us, and I'm the only one with more than a year on the team. And the amount of work has increased significantly. I will miss all the people that are leaving- so many good, hardworking, nice people.
