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!

PM- work closed due to 3 inches of snow yesterday (and power outages) so worked from home then did about 6 miles around home. The snow is adding to the Christmas feeling!

Lunch- busy morning at work but got out just after lunch for a run. Discovered several signs saying the GE trail was closed due to hazardous conditions so I ran 2 laps on track (12 min) then went and did 25 min on bike

Lunch- I gave blood yesterday so assumed I'd feel bad today. We played on the second field as the first was very muddy. 14 people on a small field- we did 6v6, and the short field led to lots of scores. After a few minutes, we switched so that the scoring team retained possession and immediately went the other way, and all substitutions were hockey-style, on the fly. Then, we added that if you make a mistake (drop, bad throw, etc), people call "Shame" and you have to go off the field so the sub can come on. Fun game, non-stop, lots of scoring. My team was up 9-8 with 2 minutes to go before going on a streak and winning 14-8.

Due to expected rain tomorrow, we played frisbee today. First time ever on the GE softball field, which was real nice- decent grass, flat, no trees. Only 8 people showed up. My team lost first game 4-5 aided by some drops and bad throws. Shortened the really-long field some, then we won 5-2.

AM rainy, cold, no frisbee, and GE trail still closed, so I did 7 treadmill miles at 8:12 pace.
