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!

Frisbee- great game today, and one of the more tiring. My throws were generally better than usual, especially long bombs. We won 5-3 (scoring the last 4), then I switched teams and we won 3-1, then 1-0. Very tired and sore afterwards.

Out late with the kids at the circus. Since it is in town and going out of business in a few months, this might literally be the only circus they ever see.

AM- After taking the 5 kids to Kinley's basketball game without Marci (Kinley did great- she had 3 shots, I think her first of the season), then gym. Hour bike, 3 mile run- Mission Impossible 3 was on the TV and I felt great, so I added on 2 more miles than originally intended. I'll see how the Achilles feels tomorrow.

Frisbee Monday- low 60's and perfect weather, but we had the fewest number of people this year. Nice 7v7 game. Won 5-2 then lost 0-1.

Now that football season is over, my morning workout becomes less interesting as Mike and Mike on ESPN2 basically loses any interest for me. When on the bike, I tend to read on my phone. While running, it's back to Dan Carlin podcasts.

AM- I've been sleeping terribly again- 3 to 5 hours per night for a while. Woke up at 3 am today, so was in the office before 5. Took a workout break mid-morning. Bike for an hour, then ran 3 miles. Last mile was my fastest in 3 months- sub 8:00! Wahoo.

How sad it is.

frisbee. won 5-3 even though we decidedly had the less talented team. Game two had 5v4 (I was on the team with only 4 players) and we won 3-2. Awesome.

Frisbee Monday- gorgeous weather. Nice game of 6 vs 6. We were down 2-1, then scored 4 straight to win. Then I switched teams and we did a game to 3 of 4 vs 4. My team won 3-1. Wind was a bit funky today, adding some adventure.

Same as yesterday. Felt generally ok- ran the 4 miles in 32 minutes. I'll run a bit less tomorrow, want to not rush anything. I'm in the for the long view here (30+ years).

Bike then just 2 miles run. Don't want to push it too much, plus have to be rested for frisbee tomorrow.

Lunch- frisbee on a gorgeous day, although the play was pretty sloppy today for no apparent reason- lots of bad throws and drops. Me included. For the final game, my team went down 1-3, then scored 3 straight, then it was all tied 4-4, then we pulled out the last point and won. It wasn't pretty, though. Oh yeah, and my ankle got smashed, twice. It looks pretty terrible and is very sore/stiff.

Lunch- frisbee on a glorious, 70 deg day with minimal wind. We made the field narrower and about 40 yards longer- it was huge. Lots more running than usual. 6v6, then 5v5. Close battle, evenly matched, never more than a 1 point lead. My team won 5-4.

First lunch run in months. Ran with Barry, plus some with Jim, Shamgar, and Scott. GE trail. Running outside on the trail is a lot harder than on the treadmill. Then bike.

Joined the FRB 10 years ago. I'm one of only 299 members with 10 years seniority, and one of only 13 who is still active (updated in the past month)

Ultimate Frisbee- 70 deg day with little wind and somewhat cloudy. We had 22 people show up, a record, so split into 2 games. I went onto the smaller, new field. We had 4 vs 4, then 5 vs 5. We won 5-3, then combined games of 4v4. We went down 0-2, then scored 3 straight to win. Lots of running. Tired. That's a good thing.

lunch frisbee. 7 v 7. A bit of a chippy day. My team won 5-2 in the end.

I just removed Cody, Paul, Jake, and JCole from my blog list. **sniff** 

No point keeping them there if they never update.
