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- 2 run on treadmill  (raining outside, and I knew I wasn't going far), then bike

Lunch- 11 people for frisbee on a rainy day. The first windy day in a while, and our throws were appropriately bad for the first while. My team won 5-3.

AM- I'm being conservative in my comeback. 3 on the treadmill due to rain (not sure the last time I ran on treadmill- it's been a long time), then 30 min bike.

AM- planned to run 4 but shin/ankle was a bit sensitive, so stopped to bike at 3 miles.

Lunch- 5v5 frisbee, other team had a sub. They were a bit better skill wise, but we battled hard. Got down 3-0, then battled to tie it 4-4 before losing. We had chances to win but were plagued by bad drops all day. Doh. Unforced errors usually result in a Loss, and today was no different. Always a fun time, though.

AM- 6 on the treadmill, as it was steady rain outside. Again. Wettest, coolest August I remember in SC.

Lunch- the rain all morning and even during the game kept the people away. 5v5. So humid, the frisbee was wet and slippery, so there were lots of drops. The game to 5 was one of the longest ever, with the 3rd point taking at least 5 minutes. My team got up 4-1, then the other team tied it 4-4 before my team scored the winning point. Fun game today. Very, very tired and sore- my right quad is acting funny and tight, my left achilles was the most painful it's been in a long time.

AM- super humid morning. Ran almost 2 miles with Aspen, which was a first and enjoyable, then a while more by myself. Last mile was 7:30.
