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!

Gorgeous day for frisbee- mid-60's, sunny, and a intermittent but fairly light breeze. 15 people, other team had sub. They had better throwers and more speed but we had more experience. Pretty even. Very fun games today- I had a few risky throws that sometimes worked out, sometimes didn't. Adrian was catching well today- he and Tom scored most the points. Back and forth in the game- my team was down 3-2, then scored (all 6 points with the wind), then finally broke the other team to score into the wind, and then another point for a 5-3 win. I think I scored the winning point and threw 2 or 3 more.

Did a 3v3 game to 3, I was the only one on my team with energy so ran a lot. Got a few knockdowns on Alex, which was nice. My team was up 2-0, then they tied it 2-2, then my team won. I'm on a 7 game win streak, I think.

Very fun today. Days like today are why I enjoy ultimate.

AM- 53 deg. Brr. Super brr. Still just wore a t-shirt. Achilles is acting up more so my planned 8 miles ended at 5. Felt good otherwise, moving well. Saw 9 or 10 deer, 0 people, 0 turkeys.

11 people on a nice day for frisbee. At first we only had 6 people but then more trickled in. Other team had sub. My team was up 4-1 but the other team was playing a good zone defense and scored 2 straight before we won 5-3. I generally played well- 1 drop, pretty good throws. My role was more the deep threat today.

Yesterday was my 40th birthday. I can no longer claim to be young. Started it off in fashion with a 6v6 frisbee game. There was a brisk wind from endzone to endzone, and the first 4 points were simply the team with the tailwind scoring. My team finally broke the other team and scored into the wind, then again with the wind at our back to make it 4-2. We won 5-3. Good game today, lots of back and forth and not as many drops. I made a few pretty good throws, few bad ones, one very lucky one. No drops, a few scores, and one epic diving/sliding long catch. Rob on my team had a particularly good defensive game. Fun time today.
