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- beautiful weather, not beautiful frisbee. 7v7, other team had a sub. My team got stomped- turned it over a lot. Lost 5-1. 12 people for second game, we still played poorly but won 3-2. My back/quad/ham are super sore again afterwards. More layoffs again at work today, too, including the guy in my building who I'm closest to and talk to a lot. He's going through a nasty divorce and now he's been laid off. Brutal.

only slept 2 hours last night. Figured working out this morning was as good of use of time as anything, but very sore from frisbee yesterday. 30 min elliptical, stretching.

Very sore and tired today. Did 20 min very low on elliptical. Back hurt all day today- I think last year when it acted up was during layoffs, too.

lunch- due to expected rain tomorrow, 6 of us showed up to play today. I'm less sore than yesterday but still far from 100%. 3v3 is LOTS of running. We started the game to 5 early as we were getting tired. My team won 5-3. I played pretty well, although had a couple very hard (but catchable) catches I missed. Then we did hot box just for fun- we didn't keep score but my team definitely scored more.

No workout of any kind. The lack-of-motivation continues at work. A coworker and I decided to go see Avengers midday. Good movie. Then watch daughter's soccer game right after work. 2 more soccer games tomorrow, then wife and oldest gone the rest of the day with church stuff.
