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!

Lunch 4. Felt better than I expected.

PM- about 2 miles at xc practice. The coach gave out PR bars- the team ran well and it was a fast course last meet, so everyone except the three fastest girls set PR's. Some of them set PR's by almost 4 minutes at a 2 mile race.

18 people at frisbee, most in a long, long time. Great weather- mid 60's, sunny, a bit breezy. My team never led the first game and lost 4-5, won the next game 3-2. I didn't play great, some bad throws and drops, but ok.

PM- ran 5 miles around soccer fields while kids at practice

Today was the middle school championship race for our conference. The boys took second (Miguel won every race all year). The girls won the team event, with 3 girls being All-conference (top 7 places). My 6th grade daughter was first overall for our team and set a PR by over a minute, which was awesome. She ran the 2 miles in 13:19- not sure I could do it that fast anymore. Congrats to her and the rest of the girls! My 8th grader didn't qualify top 7 but ran in the open meet and finished 2nd girl, also setting a PR by 37 seconds in 15:49. Fun to watch all of these kids. 

The head coach's youngest kid will be in high school next year so she won't coach anymore. I figure I'll do it.

10 people at frisbee. Good weather, mid-60's, slight breeze. I had a number of bad throws but uncharacteristically had some great long catches in the end zone, including the game winner on a very contested catch. That was fun. My team won 5-2.

Celebrated my 42nd birthday by hiking 7 miles to the top of Table Rock with Marci- we even ran the last mile downhill. Then played frisbee in the afternoon- my team was up 4-1, then gave up 3 straight points before we won 5-4.

PM- 11 people for frisbee. My team played 5, the other played 5 adults and 1 teen. My team was pretty low energy at the start. However, we picked it up just in time for the game. It was tied 2-2 before we scored 3 straight for the win. Then we did 4v5 for another game, which we won 3-2.

I think I ran last Thursday but forgot to write it down. Friday and Saturday saw 9 miles backpacking in Panthertown NC. Today I ran 7.5 miles and did weights for the first time in over a month.

Windy day at frisbee. 6v6. My team made some mistakes and were down 0-3, eventually fought to 4-4 before losing 4-5. Fun game. Then 4v4 except 2 people from the other team got injured so we stopped. I guess my team won since it was 1-0.

Most of the family was camping so Aspen and I went running from home. 3 miles. It was chilly- low 40's and breezy. My coldest run in a long time. 
 

Happy Halloween, everyone.
