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 Getting old stinks. More aches, more injuries. Oh well.

Ran this morning. Achilles felt good enough. Left hamstring was very tight- my stride length felt like it was 6 inches. And slow- 9:30-ish pace the whole time. I did feel good enough to do 6 miles instead of 4, though. Saw 7 deer, a flock of 10 turkeys, then another flock of 10 turkeys 200 yards away. Had to make a bunch of noise to get them off the trail, but they were all female so moved out of the way. I've never seen more than about a dozen turkeys before, and I saw 20 today. Gobble gobble.

Lunch- GRRRR. Let one slip away today at frisbee. I had a meeting run over so was 10 minutes late, no warm up. 5v5, though the other team definitely had more skill/speed, and I would have been surprised if we won. We got killed in the warmup, though I had some great, very difficult throws. Game to 5 started and my team was doing a great job of playing- we were up 4-2, surprisingly, with 3 of those scores passes from me to Jeff, and one an amazing catch by Alex. The whole game, though, I kept slighly misfiring on long passes to Tom when he was open in or near the end zone. Dang it. The other team battled back, tying it up. At the last point, my team had 2 drops near the other team's endzone, and they capitalized by winning. We had multiple chances to win but just couldn't convert. I played generally good defense, good catching, pretty good throws except some terrible misses to Tom. Dang it- really had a shot today at an upset and blew it.
