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!

Lunch- frisbee. 5v5, my favorite number. Not as hot as last week but still plenty warm. Slight advantage to my team (partly cause the best player on the other team was having catching and throwing issues). We won 5-2, aided by two bad turnovers by the other team near their endzone. I played well- my long throws were going where I wanted, and no drops.

AM 8 miles on GE trail. First 4 with Barry- we were moving very well, he was pushing the pace. 7:45-ish. Then 4 more by myself, a bit slower. Saw 4 deer, 2 turkey. It was almost cool this morning, 65 deg. First run under 70 deg since May.

No run, slept poorly last night and left early for amusement park with my two oldest. Note: I don't recommend going to an amusement park if you're a bit sick with headache and stomach ache. After 2 roller coaster rides at the start, I was nauseous and sweating profusely. I spent the next 4 hours lying on the grass. Finally joined in for the water park in the afternoon and then 1 more roller coaster, but that was it for the day. My girls had a blast, I'm just glad I didn't puke. Didn't get home till 11 pm, and promptly went to sleep.

AM- felt a bit better than yesterday. Slept in a bit then ran GE trail. Unexpectely felt like I was moving fast and timed myself at 7:45 pace- wow. First run I've felt good on for a while. Saw 3 deer and 2 people. 6 miles.

Lunch- I wasn't sure if I should play frisbee as I've been dizzy and had a headache all day but decided to give it a go. Teams were probably stacked a bit towards my team, 7v7 with each team having a sub. Fairly even warmup, but then game to 5 started and my team dominated. The other team made a few costly turnovers, and our speed started frustrating them which generally results in forced/poor throws. We won 5-0.

AM 8 to 8.5 miles (gmap-pedometer said 8.7). Felt good- clocked 1 mile just under 8, then two others around 7:40-7:45. Drizzled a bit during the run.
