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!

Had a good weekend, lots of kid activities. Winning doesn't matter but is still kind of fun. Zach finished his baseball season a few weeks ago with 11-1 record. Aspen's soccer finished this weekend with a 10-0-1 record (same team finished 0-6-6 last year). Quincy's soccer team finished 7-2-2. Lots of fun to cheer on the kids and see them play hard.

Frisbee today was fun. 50 deg, muddy, overcast, slight breeze. We played 4 vs 5, my team had 1 fewer person on the field. Lots of running and I really noticed the bad cold I have right now. We were tied 3-3 before we made a few mistaked (2 bad throws and 1 drop) that doomed us, so lost 3-5. But I thought we did pretty well for ourselved considering we had fewer players and could have won.

No workout today. I went from feeling fine to having a pretty bad cold Sunday night. Monday, I felt good enough to play frisbee at lunch, but by the evening I felt terrible- completely stuffed up, fever, sore, tired. I fell asleep on the couch at 9, moved to my bed at midnight, and slept over 10 hours. I still feel very tired and weak today so will just rest from any workouts. Unfortunately, work demands will see me put in a 10-12 hour day in the office.

Sick, no workout. Losing my voice- I could give James Earl Jones a run for his money with voice sound right now.
