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!

Sick at home, no run. Really sore throats really stink, as do noses that are stuffy yet runny.

Back to work, but no run yet. Probably tomorrow. Between Monday morning to Wednesday morning, I slept about 24 of the 48 hours. Oofdah. Not sure when I've ever slept that much.

Lunch- played Ultimate frisbee for the first time since the rib injury. Skills had slipped a bit and I couldn't run quite as much as usual, but still so much fun. If I could play ultimate more and run less, I wouldn't complain. Fun sport.

AM- went for a nice morning run after a long day yesterday (work then temple means leave before 7 am, home at 10 pm). Getting home was delayed as I wanted to fill the car with gas but multiple stations were out due to a pipeline breaking in Mississippi. It's amazing how our just-in-time society is so dependent on everything working just right. One pipeline leaking results in gas going up 35 cents in a few hours and multiple stations running out of gas. If there were a long time shortage... well, it wouldn't be pretty.

Anyway, today's run was a slow 6 miles- 8:30 avg pace, or so. Lower legs are a bit sore from the running yesterday, plus bad sleep the past few nights (4 hours last night as I was up at 3 am onward due to sick kid). I listened to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History series- amazing podcasts. I'm on the 5th of 6 in the WW1 series, and each one is 4-5 hours long. WW1 is amazing and so sad.
