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- 6. Pretty slow, but who really cares. Nice to not have an alarm this morning, although I still woke up before 7. Actually, my wife had been asked to take a neighbor to the airport at 4 am, so I actually woke up then, first, then took a while to sleep again. Going blueberry picking after Marci returns from soccer, then bbq tonight. Hot here, upper 90's to 100's all week, plus humidity. Retired my shoes today. I have lots of pair over 400 miles, and no test shoes right now, so I'll be having to grab some of the dozen+ new shoes from the boxes in my closet.

My dad had emergency heart surgery in India last night. Reports are he is doing ok, with several stents put in. Praying for him. I think the only people that will even read this are my parents plus Rob, and maybe a couple others.

Happy Independence Day, everyone! Also known as Secession Day (yes, I live in the South now)

PM- PM with Barry on a hot day (heat index above 100). Did the full 10 mile loop with a nice swim in the lake at the halfway point. Actually jumped in twice. Hot, got it done. Nice to be on trails. Lots of good discussion, as always- health, dogs, and the double standard for normal people vs the Clintons.

Lunch hot 6 miles, then an hour of ultimate. Dead by the end. Upper 90's and humid means well over 100 for Feels Like temp.

Am- only had time for a (slow) 8 miles in 64 min before heading out on a busy day. Slow, again. 80+% of my summer runs are this way, partly due to heat, partly due to me being in not great shape, and partly due to excess weight and fatigue.
