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!

Sunny day, breezy, 50 deg. 6v6. I threw terribly at first (first 5 or 6 throws were comically bad). Then calmed down and did better, but not great. My team won 5-3. Then 4v4, my team played poorly and lost 3-1.

AM 8 miles. Tired and slow- 8:30 pace the whole time. But I got it done, so at least I can say that.

I've been very lacking on sleep for a long time. I was proud of myself for getting in bed by 10 pm last night with 6:30 am alarm, but then couldn't fall asleep and woke up far before alarm so still only got 6 hours. That's a lot better than normal, but I'm still tired. Someday I'll be able to sleep.

9 people on a cool, very windy day. Sunny but in the 30's. It was the windiest it's been in a long time. My team had 5 with more speed, the other team has 4 with better throwers. They scored the first 3 and we were overall pretty even in warmup. In the game to 5, my team won 5-2. Interestingly, 6 of the 7 points were INTO the wind, not with the tailwind. Some crazy throws, as expected. Fun. It would have been better if we had even teams.

AM 9 miles on the treadmill. They've cleared all but 1 downed tree on the GE trail so hopefully it will reopen soon. Felt good today- started at 8:30 pace but kept bumping it up to 8:00 pace, then last 2 miles were 7:53 and 7:45. First sub-8 miles of the year. Then chiropractor for my neck/back/shoulder before heading to work.

AM only needed 4 hours work so decided to do a little morning run, then frisbee. 4 easy. Found out the GE trail is now open- I'll start running it again next week. I've missed it.

Lunch- sunny, 50's, and again windy. Not as windy as Wednesday, but still windy enough that it played a significant factor in the game. I think we had 14 people, though 1 left halfway through so my team had a sub. The other team had 5 fast guys plus one guy good at throwing. My team had 3 fast guys. Lots of turnovers due to the wind and crazy throws (which are related). We went up 3-1, then it was tied 3-3, then 4-4 before my team pulled out the win. We actually won twice, with me catching the first winning point before the other team belatedly said we fouled them and asked for a redo. Several other fouls were called before my team won. Fun day, kind of crazy with the wind.

am upper 50s and sunny. Slow and easy 4. Biggest weekly mileage in seven months. Strange, as I used to be at least 2-3 times higher each week.
