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- 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.

So your ankle is better? Also, do you wear a GPS when you're playing?

Rob- my ankle is still swollen and very purple and yellow from bruising. However, the injury Friday was from someone twice sliding down the ankle with his cleat when we were jumping for catches. There was no twisting/bending or structural damage to any bones/ligaments/tendons, etc. Basically, a bad bruise, not a sprained ankle. So it's a bit sore and stiff from the swelling but was structurally fine. Once I started playing, I didn't even notice it. It will probably be more swollen and sore tomorrow from the usage, but not a big deal.

I haven't used my GPS watch in 2 years. I just estimate the amount of running. It might be less, but it doesn't really matter, anyway. Though I remember Cody wearing a GPS once at frisbee and he ran further than I would have guessed. I do run a lot, and much of it sprinting. There's some fast guys I usually cover on defense who are energizer bunnies.
