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!

PM (after dark)- ran 3 miles with my second daughter. Though only 12 years old, she will soon be faster than me if she isn't already. We discussed meteor showers, running, school, and other things.

Frisbee- 6 vs 6 (although 1 on my team was a kid). I was throwing well in warmup which usually means I throw poorly. I did throw poorly- probably had 5 turnovers. We got whupped 5-1. Then played more and we won 2-1. Most people we've had in a while. Weather was pretty good, too- low 80's, partly cloudy, but very humid.

AM 5 miles and weights

PM- first cross country practice. Generally just helped the head coach, ran a mile with the team and some more to set up/take down, etc. About 25 girls and 20 guys showed up. They generally keep about 16 boy and 16 girls, primarily based on 2 mile time trial on Thursday.

AM only had time for 4.5 miles before a day full of 6 kid soccer games. I'm taking two of my kids to the movies tonight- the theatre is open showing classic movies for $5. I chose Inception. Might be a bit confusing for them.

AM 4 miles 34 min in a drizzle. Head XC coach is out today so I'm leading the charge solo. 

PM- ran quite a bit while doing cross country practice. Fun times.

I didn't get out till after 10 pm. Ran around the neighborhoods while listening to podcasts. 6 miles. Started at 8:30 pace, last few miles were faster, finishing under 8:00.

AM- I felt really slow but actually started at 8:35 pace, which wasn't bad. Finished around 8:05. 6 miles, 50:13. Nothing notable to report.

PM- ran a bit during XC practice. Their first meet is tomorrow. To my dismay, the teams won't race against each other. Instead, each team will have their own start time, staggered from the other teams.
