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!

Happy New Years, everyone!

Lunch- field is still muddy so we moved frisbee to the softball field. 6v6. My team dropped 3 passes in the endzone so were soon down 0-2. We then scored 5 out of 6, so won 5-3. I played pretty well- a couple bad passes but generally reliable, throwing a few points and catching at least 1.

AM- legs, specifically quads, even more sore and tired today. Almost feels like I ran an ultra recently. Plodded along on the treadmill for 4 miles at slower than 9 min pace. GE trail is still closed, track is flooded (with 2 to 3 more inches of rain expected by Fri night), and I don't want to run busy roads in the dark, so treadmill is the best option. Tired today, only 5 hours sleep the past few nights.

AM- I wasn't sure how I'd feel today give the soreness and tiredness of the rest of the week. It is a cold, rainy morning so I hit the treadmill again wanting at least 6 miles. I felt good enough to extend to 7, then 8. 68 min. Less sore and tired, but still not great.

There's over 4000 people who started accounts on FRB. I remember back when you could reasonably comment on all the blogs, or at least all the new blogs. Well, FRB is back to that point- there are exactly 4 people who joined within the past year and have posted within the past month. There are 89 total people who have posted in the past month, in fact. The days of so many people being on it are over.

It's amazing to me how many people have left. To us few who remain, well done.
