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- in the 70's, overcast, a bit breezy that increased as we progressed. 15 people, other team had sub. Good back and forth game, my team won 5-4 (I threw winning pass to Julian). Then 4v4 second game. With game tied 2-2, my team snatched defeat from the jaws of victory- we had 5 or 6 passes into the endzone that were incomplete for a wide variety of reasons (carried too far, curved the wrong way, hard to read, dropped). We found every way to NOT score. Other team finally won 3-2.

AM- 7 holy-slow miles on muddy GE trail. 9:30-9:00 pace. 1 deer, 1 group of turkeys with a male, and 1 coyote. Slow, tired, sore, old. Blah. Staying up till 1 last night watching the game probably didn't help. It was exciting, though.

Lunch- 75 deg, sunny, a little breeze. GRRR- we definitely let the win get away from us today. My team was playing well and up 3-1. Then, we started doing horrible turnovers- drops, blocked throws, and mainly bad passes. I think 3 or 4 the other team's points came when they turned it over near their endzone, but then our thrower was SUPER slow in picking it up, letting the D get set up, and then we did a bad throw and immediately turned it right back over to them. Definitely more a case of us losing today than them winning. It's ok to get beat, but it's frustrating to beat yourself. We lost 5-4.

Lunch- 80 deg and sunny, touch of humidity. Rain tomorrow so we had 12 people for frisbee today. My legs are noticably more tired and sore with no days rest- it was rough. My team was whupping on the other team in the warm up- we probably scored 5 straight points and were generally doing whatever we wanted. Sure enough, per tradition, the real game started, we made a couple quick mistakes and were soon down 0-2. We fought back to a tie, then alternated points with the other team always scoring first. They made very few mistakes. We ended up losing 4-5. Doh. Whoever plays worse early usually wins in the end.

Lunch- the rain actually held off but not enough people interested in frisbee today so I did rare lunch run. Upper 70's and humid. Felt terrible, stopped to stretch and walk a few times. Thought of stopping at 3 miles but kept going to 6. Blah. Felt a bit better by the end. Say a small group of turkeys, 5 or so.
