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 7

Lunch frisbee. 7v7 with a few subs. The other team was more stacked than mine and kicked our butt for a while, but we pulled it together just in time for game to 5. It was a battle to 4-4. Then, in an incredibly long point, we had 4 drops in the endzone, and they had a few (some of the drops were very contested). We finally pulled out the last point and won 5-4. Oofdah.

AM 6. Saw 8 deer and a coyote, the first one I'd seen behind GE. He was rather large for a coyote. I was withing about 20-30 yards before he saw me and ran.

Lunch- classic 7v7 frisbee battle. My team triumphed, 5-4. The other team had more speed and youth, but we had the wisdom. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Mid morning 8 on trail. Just 1 deer, I think and no people on the trail. 7:45-8 pace. Such a nice time of year to be outside. I finished the Death Throes of the Republic series of Hardcore History. Not my favorite series. I much prefer the WWI (his magnum opus), Oestfront, and King of Kings series. Next up is the Mongols one, which is still new to me. I think I have 7 total that I have not listened to, then I'll repeat 48-59 before listening to the newest one, number 60, on Julius Caesar and the Gauls. I much prefer listening to podcasts while running over running with people these days.

Am 6. Somewhere between 9-14 deer (some on the way back may have been repeats)

Frisbee. 19 people, though only 16 by the end. My team lost 5-3.
