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!

Frisbee. My team had sub, 5v5. We lost 5-3 and we're lucky to do that week. Definitely the slower team. We were down 4-1. Missed some chances too

AM run on the GE trail. I hope I'm finally able to get back to normal. 4 miles, 1 loop. 6 or 9 deer, 1 turkey.

Lunch- 80 deg day, warmest of the year (though not for long). 4v4 frisbee (crazy to think we routintely had 16-24 people not long ago). My team had 2 speed guys vs their 1, so should have won. We did, 5-3. To be fair, we also had the 2 slowest people and the worst thrower.

AM- Barry and I ran 4 miles on the GE trail. 3 turkeys. Good to be running with him again, and to be running again at all.

Lunch- hot day (80's) and windy. yoga then frisbee. 9 people, so we did 1 guy switching teams after the team with 5 scored. My team got whupped- the other team scored the first 2 points even though they were down a person. We finally calmed down and scored a few, but still lost 5-3. Drubbing. Scott and I were not throwing well at all.

Strange how quickly we've gone from 14+ people every frisbee game, and often 20+, to barely hitting 10 most days. I don't think any of the people were laid off, but people are under more stress and have increasing workloads. For example, another guy in my team is leaving. 2 years ago we had 11 application engineers. Now, we will have 4. I'm the senior most non-management AE on my team.
