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- 5 miles then weights

PM- ran some at the cross country meet. I thought it went well, there were lots of kids that ran hard and improved on their time trial times. Fun to watch them.

Late afternoon frisbee- hot hot, mid-90's with feels like of 102. 10 people plus one kid. My team was kicking butt at the start (I think we scored the first 4 or 5 points). Sure enough, we lost 5-3 in the real game. I had a couple bad throws.

Lunch- very hot for frisbee. 6v6 with 1 sub. My team won 5-0, the very rare shutout. I don't think I made a single mistake- no drops. I may have had a bad throw or two but don't remember any.

11 people came to frisbee today, other team had a sub. It was very hot, sunny, and humid- everyone was commenting on it. My team started off slow, but picked it up before the game to 5. Chris R threw some good long passes that we did a good job catching- I had 3 or 4 long catches, which is rare for me. A few hard and easy drops, but generally played well. I felt very tired- after a hard sprint, it took a lot longer to recover than usual. My team won 5-3.

PM- Ran 3 miles with Aspen after sundown.

PM- ran the course twice, plus a lot more running as part of hosting the middle school cross country meet. Fun times- it's a good course, with over a mile of real singletrack through the hills and forest, as opposed to running on football fields for other courses.

PM- late afternoon frisbee. 13 people, great weather, mid 70's, overcast, slight breeze. Teams were even but my team won 5-2. We won second game 3-0. We let the other team play with their sub for a third game and we really didn't have much motivation, so they won 3-0.

After dinner, I ran 2 miles with Aspen. Felt really dizzy and light headed during the run. Strange, not a real good feeling. Maybe just dehydrated? Already started raining with the hurricane moving through, which is supposed to dump up to 9 inches in 30 hours.

No run yesterday due to a busy day and the hurricane cancelling XC practice. Played frisbee today- 5v5, cool temps, rather breezy. I had a few turnovers but played ok. My team was down 0-2 and never led until the end when we won 5-4. Fun game. Then straight home to set up new bed and desk for my oldest who is turning 14 today.

Cross Country practice. Didn't run as much as some days. Did a 1 mile time trial- Aspen asked me to run with her so I pushed her hard. She ran 6:56, which we think is her first sub-7 ever.

AM- we are firmly in Fall. After having lows in the mid to upper 60's the past few weeks, today was 47 when I ran. Brr. Felt good, extended the run to 8 miles. 8:08 avg with 7:45 last mile. Then weights.

AM 4 easy. 

PM 15 people for frisbee. Teams were skewed right from the start, and we said it even before the game started. But we played poorly, too. My team lost 5-3, and it wasn't that close. Then we lost 0-3. Ouch. I had some bad throws. And some drops. Just poor showing all around.

Lunch- 10 people for frisbee. My team won 5-3. We lost the second game 2-3, with all 3 points from the other teams being long bombs to Chris while I was covering him.

Still a bit under the weather but decided to do frisbee instead of a run. 12 people, perfect weather. My team had struggles and was low energy (including me, who ran less than usual). In the game, we were down 0-2 and I thought we were in trouble, but we scored 4 straight before winning 5-3. We lost the next game 1-3.
