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 8 slow. A bit more than usual as it was supposed to be raining all day so I wasn't counting on frisbee.

Lunch- rain let up a bit during lunch, though the wind didn't. I had meeting till 12:30 so missed most of frisbee, but made it for the last 20 min, just in time for the official game. Windy and crazy, 4v4. My team won 5-2.

PM- Paris Mtn with Aaron and Lynn. First run there since Aug 29 injury. Last run sans headlamp. Nice weather, good run. Everything felt pretty good, though I twisted my foot pretty hard on a rock. 7.5 mile loop.

AM 3 bike 3 run. Foot was ok

Lunch- today was the long planned Grandkids vs Geezers ultimate game. Split point ended up being 34 years old, so I was a geezer. Geezers got our butts kicked the first 30 minutes, then the game started and we won 5-3. It was all due to patience on offense, only making good passes. It sure wasn't due to being faster overall or more athletic. Chalk one up to wily veterans.

AM- 6 slow. Saw 1 person on the trails (shocking), 1 deer, no turkey. 

Lunch- such great weather for frisbee. 21 people, so 2 games. My team got lucky and won the first one against a better team. 4 of the 5 points were long bombs from Travis to the endzone, lots of luck. We were up 4-3 in the second game but then gave up 2 straight points.
