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 4 miles with Ken and Heather on GE trail. 1 deer, 1 turkery. I also saw 2 female and 8 or 9 baby turkeys on the drive in right by the trail

Lunch- 13 people for frisbee. Other team had a sub. My team definitely had more fast guys, but their team had 4 good long throwers. Very competitive, always within 1 point. My team pulled off the 5-4 win. I had a near collision at full speed with Benson (who broke my ribs once), so am glad to avoid serious injury. I did dive once, though, and came down hard on my elbow, leaving my ribs a little sore.

The canadian geese had a huge party on the field- it has poop everywhere. Anytime you went to the ground you came up smeared in goose poop. Lovely.

My last game for 3 weeks. I leave tomorrow for 3 weeks in Idaho. My family has been there for 8 days already, while I've been home working and doing the honey-do list till midnight every day.

AM 7 miles around home. 8:30-8:40 pace. I continue to sleep poorly- 4 hours last night. I wake up around 4 or 5 every morning and am rarely able to fall asleep again. Weather was quite nice today- not too humid, a touch of cool (75 deg- I guess that's cool these days). Of course, my runs the next 3 weeks will be significantly cooler and less humid.

Am 6 around Ammon ID. Low 40s, coldest run in months. Didn't seem too bad though.

AM- invented a big loop out of Ammon. The in-laws new house is not in a as-runner-friendly location as they used to live. Loop ended up being just under 8.5 miles in just under 70 minutes. Felt pretty good, but I want to be cautious for injuries.

AM  nice morning run with Jeff Shadley. I think it was our first together in 6 years?!? Enjoyable company. lots of good conversation, and cool weather makes for my fastest run in a long time. Jeff's watch showed us around 7:30 pace for the first 4 or 5 miles before we slowed towards the end. 8.5 miles in 71 minutes. Great to see Jeff again.
