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!

Ran from Condo up Ferguson canyon a little ways. Not real fast in the canyon. No idea how far we went in 90 minutes, we'll call it 5 miles.

AM- I'm not sure how much is a result of travelling, altitude, not sleeping well, not eating well, but today was a very slow 4 miles that even had a bit of walking at the end. But at least I got in a run. That's not always easy while travelling, especially since I'm still working so my work day starts at 6 am.

AM- my younger kids wanted to run so we parked about .5 mile from Community Park, ran to it, did 1 lap, then I did more laps while they were playing, then ran back to car.

Back in SC (drove 2100 miles in 2 long days). Felt much better running- I'm attributing it to low elevation again. Did some elliptical and running.

PM- 8 people for frisbee. My team lost 4-5. Later that night, my 8th grader wanted me to join her for a run so we did 2 slow, stiff, tired miles.

PM- cross country practice. Planned to run more but some of the kids brought bags/phones, so I felt I should stay with everyone's stuff rather than run with them. Ended up doing a mile. Later went to gym for some elliptical.

same as Tuesday

Went to Cleveland park to scout out the cross country run for Saturday. It's a good thing I did cause some of the trails were overgrown and not usable. My kids were troopers, walking almost 3 miles with me in near 100 deg temps (and humid!). Wife and two teenagers get home from Illinois tomorrow. In the past 8 weeks, I worked from home 2 weeks while wife and 2 teens were out of town, was in Utah/Idaho for over 3 weeks, and was at work for 9 days.

It was very hot and muggy for frisbee today. Only 4v4 again. The sprinklers even came on for some of the game, which was nice. My team got up 4-1, then the other team scored 3 straight before we finally won 5-4.

AM 14 kids showed up for the cross country summer run. We did 3.25 miles, and 4 of my kids ran, too (including my 7 year old, who beat some of the middle schoolers). Only 2 weeks till school and cross country season officially start.
