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- mid 60's and windy. 8v8. My team did good in warmup. Game to 5, we got worked- lots of dumb throws, some drops, etc. I also felt like there was a lack of effort on defense, so they kept having throws to wide open receivers. I got a bit frustrated, for the first time in probably a year. We were down 0-3, then scored one, then it was 1-4, then we scored 2 straight. Down 3-4, they had two super extra lucky catches and went on to win. Frustrating. 4v4 for next game, my team was up 2-0, then 2-2 before we finally won. Thank goodness.

AM- 50 deg, a bit muddy from rain last night. My quads were sore and I felt ploddish all ran. Did 9 miles, 8:15-8:30-ish pace. Saw ~20 turkey (had to bushwack and jump a creek once to avoid an aggressive tom), 5 deer, and a coyote.

Lunch 6v6, then one guy left from my team mid-game. 40's, windy (again). My team had an issue with throwing good scoring opportunities out the back of the endzone so were down 3-1. Then we stopped doing that and scored 3 straight. Eventually won 5-4. Second game 4v4, we lost 2-3.

AM- a bit chilly out this morning, just above freezing. 9 miles on GE trails, 8:00-8:45 pace. Saw about 16 deer and 10 turkey. Right quad feels sore and weak still.

70 deg, sunny, windy. 7v7, other team had 1 sub. My team had better throwers plus we ran a good zone, and the other team couldn't break it with the players they had. It was a 5-0 shutout, first once since Sept. We stomped them, and that's even with making some mistakes. They did have chances to score, but never did. Next game we won 3-1.
