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!

AM- thunderstorms predicted for noon so I assumed no frisbee. I ran in the morning. Planned on 8 and wasn't going real fast (7:45-8:00) but felt fine so did 10

Lunch- rains held off so we played frisbee. 13 people, evenly matched game made more adventuresome by the blusstery winds. Fun times. My team went down 2-3 but then scored 3 straight to win.

PM- PM with Seth, Barry, and Aaron. We even ran into Carl, who we used to run with years ago, out walking with his toddler son. I felt lightheaded and terrible the first 30 min, then ok, then great on miles 6-8, then ok again. Tired by the end. Perfect running weather- mid-70's, sunny, a little breeze. Glorious.

Lunch- frisbee 7 people, so we stuck the 3 fastest on one team, including me. Fun time, lots of running. Great weather, no wind. We ended up winning 5-4. 5v5 is better, though, or 6v6.

AM- 10 miles. Started 8, but the bulk of the run was 7:45-7:30 pace. I think I even threw a 7:20 in there. Smokin'. 60 deg and a bit breezy. Perfect weather. And I ran the GE trail without seeing any turkeys.

AM- 6 at 7:40-7:20 pace

Lunch- frisbee. Rather windy, made it interesting. My team had 6 and the other had 7 most of the time, which ended up even, but they one of ours left so we did 6-6. Not even anymore, we won 5-0.

PM with just Aaron. 85 deg but not humid. I did about 9.5 miles. Pretty slow with pain in achilles and shin. Aaron has a nasty gag reflex while running and a chest cold, so actually ended up gagging so much he threw up a number of times. Yummy.

Lunch- frisbee day. 6v6. I played the best I've played in a long time, especially making some ridiculously hard catches. Fun to play well sometimes. We won 5-2.

Left heel really hurts again, all the time, so decided against running. Hour bike.

Lunch- frisbee. 70 and cloudy but humid. Too many people, 20, means we end up with 7v7 with 3 subs. I find it hard to establish a rhythm when subbing out every third point, plus the field seems very congested. Nonetheless, my team won 5-2.

PM- PM with just Aaron. Hottest day of the year, above 90 deg, but not very humid so didn't feel too bad. Didn't even drink all of my water. Did the shortened course, 7.5 miles or so. Felt pretty good, better than last week.

Lunch- new shoes. 2.5 miles run, then frisbee on a hot day. Lots of drops and low energy due to heat. My team won 5-3.

AM- I intended to run an hour, but my shin (shin splints?) were not feeling good, nor my ankle, so I stopped after a mile and biked instead. Uneventful. Blah.

Lunch- rough, rough frisbee game. 3 miles running first, then time for ultimate. We didn't do a good job splitting the teams and my team was definitely outmatched. We got whupped almost the whole time. We weren't playing well (bad throws, missed catches) and the other team had better players. We started the game to 5 and the other team immediately scored 2 easy points. I got very frustrated and was working my tail off chasing the disc, counting the thrower, etc. My team started playing a bit better but the score was still 4-2 them. However, with some kind of insane toughness, effort, and luck, we somehow won 5-4. It was tough, tough. After the game, almost my whole team was laying on the ground exhausted, and, for the first time ever, had a team rally after. Game to remember.

lunch- run 3 miles then frisbee. I'd say my team was the better one today, and we were having lots of early success, but then went down 4-1 during the official game. We scored 2 points, then someone left on the other team so I switched sides. My new team scored so won 5-3.

AM- 8. Rainy all day, so indoors. Aaron and I both decided a Paris Mtn run wouldn't be smart as we've had 3-4 inches of rain the past few days and it was thundering that afternoon.

AM- another chilly morning. Felt much better than yesterday. 6 miles in just over 44 minutes.

Lunch- Ultimate, 7v7. My team won 5-2 (we were probably a bit stacked). Then, a 4v4 game with points that took forever. We called it at 2-1 for my team.

AM 4

Lunch frisbee 5v5 with a sub on my side. The other team was slightly better but it was close. We lost 5-2 but it was more even than the score indicated. We had 4 or more chances to score from 5 yards away but could not get it in. Still fun.
