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. Felt ok

Lunch- my shoulder tendonitis (?) was hurting and it had been rainy, but I heard we had enough people for a game so I showed up. 4v4 on a short field. I couldn't throw backhand due to pain but my forehand was working very well. My team won 5-3. I'd say the teams were skewed towards my team today, to be fair.

AM 6 on the GE trails with a light drizzle. 9 deer, no people. I felt really good and hoped I was moving fast- last mile was 7:40, so that is good these days. Better than thinking I'm running fast but actually doing 8:40.

AM- 5 miles on GE trail on a drizzly morning with lots of puddles. Saw 10 turkeys but they stayed a little ways off my path. Plus about 10 deer and a blue heron.

AM 6 

Lunch- fields were dry enough to play on despite two days of rain, but we made 2 small fields, each with 4x4, to stay out of middle muddy spot (caused by shadow of 1 big tree). Windy. I've been religiously icing my arm/shoulder, and it's feeling better though far from normal. Still restricting my play, especially backhand throwing.

I had a good team today. We won the first game 5-2, then played the other winning point. One of our guys immediately went down with twisted ankle, so we played the other team 3v3 and quickly got up 3-0. They brought on their 4th player, but we still won 5-3, despite being down. After both games were done, we cobbled together one more 4v4 game, which my team won 5-3.
