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. 13 people, so my team had a sub. Pretty even teams, well-fought game today. Lots of back and forth. I'd say I had 1 terrible throw and a few others that were ok, but most of the rest were fine. I played more within myself. A bit windy. My team won 5-4 in the end.

AM 8 miles. 7 or 9 deer, 10 or 11 turkey. No people. Another hurricane may be passing through the next few days.

It's a bit rainy with a hurricane coming so only 7 people showed up. We did the normal setup of a rotating guy who switched teams each time the team with 4 people scored. Even teams, fun game today. It went back and forth till a 4-4 score, then Scott stepped off so we played 3v3 for the last point. My team received the kickoff and scored for the win. Lots of running today, fun game. I don't think I had too many bad throws today.

Hurricane with winds/rain tomorrow. We'll see how much this one impacts us.

AM Tropical storm Michael is passing through. It's rained 4 inches this morning with blustery winds (gusts up to 40 mph). In other words, great day for a run on the GE trail. To be fair, I've run in thunderstorms with far more rain and wind, and I've done 50 and 100 mile races with more rain and mud. I had a great time, splashing through the water and singing to myself (song of choice: Shallow), including air drums. I'd say I was running in standing water at least half the run, and at least a mile of it would better be described as wading. Saw 3 deer and 2 turkeys, no spiderwebs. Thoroughly enjoyed myself. I didn't wear a watch but did just under an hour, so call it 7 miles. Fun, memorable.

10 people for frisbee today. Temps have finally dropped - 65 deg today at game time with a blustery, intermittent wind that added a bit of adventure. Both teams had a number of drops and some bad throws with lots of back and forth, turnovers in the endzone, etc. My team was up 3-1, then down 4-3, then we finally won 5-4. I had a few knockdowns on defense on long throws to Adrian, Tom, and even tall Alex in the endzone (the last one was on game point). 1 drop, and a number of bad throws. But overall very fun game today.

AM 3 with my dad. I don't often run with people, especially my dad. Coldest run in a while, mid-50's. Felt great.
