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- it rained much of the weekend but 9 of us still showed up to play frisbee. The other team had better players overall (plus a sub) but we won 5-3 or 5-2. Muddy and fun- I dove 3 or 4 times in the mud, even landing head-first once.

XT. And did a yoga class, too. They asked me if I was in there on purpose, and I had to reassure them I was, and that I had done yoga a number of times in the past. Still not sure they believe me.

AM bike and row xt

Lunch- 6v6 with 1 sub on the small field, which is still very wet, almost boggy. My team quickly found ourselves in a 0-3 hole before scoring 4 straight. Then the other team scored one, but my team scored one more for the win. Chris was on the losing team and not happy.

AM- I ran. 1 mile, but it was still a run. The best part is my foot felt fine during and after. Also xt.

AM - 2 miles run. Still felt ok.

Lunch- frisbee on a windy, windy day- wind from one end zone to the other that increased during the play, making it almost comically impossible to throw upwind. 18 people showed up and the field was still wet, but we made 2 games. On the first game, my team went up 4-0, then gave up 3 straight points before winning. On the second game, I chose to kick off but have the wind at our back at the start. It was a battle, especially once Claire left so I was the only thrower on my team. We battled to a 4-4 score before my team won. So we won the tournament. 45 min of official game play, vs usually 15-20 min, plus the wind meant extra running.

My throws were not great, especially at the start. After my third turnover at the start of one game, a girl on the other team jokingly said that she's glad Jon wasn't on her team. Of course, karma struck and she promptly dropped an easy catch, so I was able to then say, "I'm glad Haley isn't on my team."  Good laughs all around.
