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, then 4 bike. Shin was ok, but not great. Very, very frustrated

Lunch- memorable day. Played 80 minutes of frisbee in a hurricane. Or what is left of a hurricane. We actually had a bit of a low spot in terms of wind and rain for most of the game, so it wasn't too bad for the most part. It was fun.

AM- 3 run, 2 bike. Wanted to do more but had a work meeting. But when I got to my desk, it had been cancelled.

I've had 3 coworkers die in the past 2 weeks. Two of them were in their 50's- one passed away in his sleep, one in a car wreck. Maybe I'm next. My main observation from it is that people are a bit stunned at first, but then life goes on just fine without them. So it goes, as a great writer once said. Indeed.

AM 3 run, 3 xt. Shin was ok

Lunch- ultimate. 22 people, most ever for Wed, so we did 2 games. My team was pretty stacked- we won first game 5-3, then beat the other winning team 5-0.

AM 4 run on GE trail, then 2 xt. Ran right next to 4 turkeys, one of them chased me a bit. My Hokas seem to be the shoes that help my shin feel the best.

I have an iPod Nano 6th generation, my second of the same type. The first died after a few years due to the power button not working anymore (spring died so it would not pop back up). I've had this one 5 years now. I completely shattered the screen last year but I still love it. The Volume Down button stopped working today, though, and the power button is about toast, too. This makes me very sad as I love this iPod. It's a very nice size with a built-in clip for running, stores lots of podcasts (my listening item of choice during runs), and has an FM radio, which is useful as my gym uses radio transmitters to broadcast the sound for the TV's on display. I cannot find any reasonable replacements in size and with a radio, so will likely buy an iPod Nano 7, which is also discontinued but may still be available. It doesn't have the clip and is a bit bigger. I do not want to run with my phone as it is large and expensive, plus does not have radio for the gym.

If I could find new iPod nano 6's, I'd buy them all. Pity when good products disappear.

AM 3 run, then 40 min bike. Felt good on the run and was moving quicker than usual.

Lunch- tied the record for most ultimate players with 24. My team won the first game 5-3, then lost the next 3-5. Fun times. Lots of running, tired. Played pretty well today in the catching and defense front. Also fairly well on the throwing, though a few misfires, plus a few good throws that were dropped.
