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 6- low 30's. 5 deer, nothing else

Lunch- 7v7 frisbee. Fun game today, relatively well played. I wasn't throwing terrifically at the start but my team won 5-2. Then we did a 4v4 game that my team lost 3-2, though both our points were LONG bombs from me to a sprinting Adrian. That was pretty awesome.

PM- PM with Merle, Seth, Lynn. Seth dropped off before 3 miles, Lynn did the normal short loop, and I decided to join Merle for the full loop. Felt good. The first half was in the light and we saw 4 people. The second half was in the dark and we saw 20 or so bikers.

AM- 8. Ran right by a group of about 9 turkeys, including 3 toms, at the start of my run. First time I've seen 3 males. Also saw 16 deer during my run in small groups. On the way back, I armed myself with rocks and a stout branch for a fight with the turkeys, but they had moved 20 yards off the trail and didn't charge me.

Lunch- frisbee. 65 deg, gorgeous. 7v7, but not my finest day- I had a few open receivers in the end zone that I missed, and then I dropped the winning point at the end. We lost 4-5. Doh.

Lunch- 7.5 behind GE. Pretty slow. GE had layoffs again today. It's pretty brutal- the company is a mess. I still have a job but have good friends that no longer do.

Am- 7 around the house. 8:30-8:15 pace. Highest weekly mileage this year. I just looked and I may end up around 2000 miles for the year. That's half of what my peak was.
