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!

6v6 frisbee. Pretty good game- my team played well with relatively few turnovers. I played well, with some good catches, no dumb throws, and good d. My team won 5-2.

No run yesterday- at Great Wolf Lodge with the family, so tired from walking up all the stairs (especially my achilles).

Frisbee today- perfect weather, 65 deg, sunny, a little breeze. 16 people eventually showed up, so a crowded field with 7v7. Not the crispest games with lots of knockdowns and missed throws, but the other team made more mistakes and my team won 5-2. I played ok, scored a few, threw a few, but a couple of mistakes. Also ran into a few guys.

Then did 5v5, which my team won 3-0. I'm a bit sore after.

AM cool morning, mid-40's. Ran 8 miles on GE trail. Back and calf have been hurting but warmed up and were ok. Pretty slow/easy- 9:30 to 8:30 pace (the bulk around 8:45). Saw lots of deer spread throughout the trail, 10+. 20 turkey. And 1 fox. No spiders, no people. I've run out of podcasts to listen to on my iPod other than Hardcore History (which is awesome, but I've already listened to all of them). Need to download new ones.

Lunch- rainy, chilly, winter-ish day (45 deg temps, drizzling, breezy). Only 4 people came for frisbee so I went running on GE trail instead. Felt good- didn't wear much warm gear but was still comfortable. No people or deer, but did see 9 turkeys around the turnaround point.
