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!

AM- 10. First by myself, then with Jason, then Todd and Jason, then just Jason, then by myself, then with Scott. Perfect morning weather for a run- in the 50's, a bit breezy, not too humid. Felt wonderful. The baby geese and their overprotective parents are all over the GE track so makes running laps a bit of an adventure.

Lunch- about 5 miles with Jim, then an hour of frisbee. 7 v 8 on our crowded field. The wind was doing strange things and we weren't playing great. I dropped at least 3 passes right in my hands.

AM perfect 50 deg weather. Ran 12 miles, a little more tired than past Saturdays. 1:29.

Looking at some FRB numbers- over 2700 of the blogs have not been updated for 3+ years, while 1200 have been updated in that time. Fewer than 600 have been updated within the past year. There's almost 4000 FRB addresses, and less than 10% have been updated this year. Interesting to see how few runners are still using this site. I wonder how many have stopped running entirely vs. how many are now on Strava. From what I can tell, the largest active group now is Utah high school runners.
