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- Marci, the inlaws, and kids 1-3 are going to Atlanta for a few days, so I'm working from home while watching the two youngest. Fortunately, our gym membership includes free babysitting (particularly nice as the high today is upper 90's). I did 9.5 miles before I ran out of time.

AM- 9 at the gym before running out of time. The Euro Cup soccer comes on in the last 30 minutes, which is pretty nice to watch while running.

Lunch- Holy Hot, Batman. Easily the hotest, most humid run of the year so far. As Jim said, you know it's hot cause the whole back of my shirt was sweaty (I sweat very little, even on hot days). Almost 80 minutes.

I had to option of running by myself midday outdoors in humid 95 deg temps, or running on a treadmill and watching Eurocup soccer game. I can report that Northern Ireland won their first game in major tournament play since 1984.

AM- 8, most with Todd

Lunch- Hot, humid day. First ultimate frisbee since my Lasik. It was overly crowded with 9 on 9, which led to lots of blocked passes (I took a hit on the shin and elbow). Even game until we started our official, "first to 3 wins" at the end. My team won 3-0. Then we played again, 3-0 again. Sweet.

AM- sleep issues continue. Took me 3 hrs to fall asleep at 12:30, then woke up at 3:30.

Run was very slow, 8 min pace or so. 9 miles. Listening to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History podcast series on WW1. It's about 24 hrs of details on WW1. Interesting, yet horrific. I'm very opposed to war, and this podcast is just reinforcing that. So many senseless deaths.
