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!

55 and sunny, little breeze. First frisbee in a week so lots of people showed up. Grass was wet and soft. My team had 2 subs, other team had 1. I had a few bad throws, 1 drop, 1 awesome diving catch, and generally played ok. But we got down 4-2 before losing 4-5. 10 people stayed for second game which we lost 2-3. Doh. Still fun. I tossed a high one to Alex, saying "I like my odds" before he did indeed catch it for a score over Keven. Fun.

Frisbee Tuesday as we missed last week and it's supposed to rain the rest of the week. 12 people showed up in beautiful, 60 deg and sunny weather. My team was getting stomped in the warmup but, sure enough, we won the real game 5-2. We got down in the second game 0-2 before tying it but then losing 2-3.

Lunch- it didn't rain too much, so we played frisbee. Upper 50's, overcast, little breeze. 11 people showed up, so my team had the extra player. The other team was stacked and really pushed us around. In the game to 5, they scored, then us, they scored again. Then, with the wind at our back, it took us 5 min or so to finally score- it was brutal. The other team scored 2 quick points so we were down 2-4, even with the extra person. Ouch. We scored, by which time they were exhausted from the extra running. We got a turnover to tie it 4-4. On the last point, I intercepted a pass, then immediately threw a terrible pass right by their endzone. Fortunately, Adrian then threw a bad pass and we got it back, but Scott had to throw a miracle pass over 3 defenders right to Dave. From there, we worked it down for the winning score. Considering we had an extra person, they did awesome. Teams were me, Scott, Elisha, Dave, JP, Travis against Sam, Adrian, Verdin, Kevin, and new guy Nick (who is super fast, aggressive, and good catcher). Kevin knocked me down once with a brutal bicep to the head but I'm ok. Good, tiring game.

No frisbee due to more rain so I ran 1 loop of GE trail at 8:45-8:30 pace. Saw about 22 turkeys. One was stuck on my side of the fence so he freaked out a bit.

AM 4 easy

Rain again today. We signed my second daughter up for soccer. In a month so far, she's had 3 practices and all 4 games have been cancelled due to rain. Hopefully it will dry out at some point so they can actually play. They have 6 more Saturdays for games and are supposed to have 12 games in the whole season.
