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!

My right quad/groin was still a little tight but feeling better so I decided to play ultimate. However, it twinged on every step and, after about 10 minutes, started getting more and more painful. After 20 minutes, I quit, limping badly. Really tweaked my groin. This stinks. I'll limping all over now. I've never had much of a muscle or groin issue, but this feels pretty serious. It will stink if I'm out of commision for a while. As my wife said, 40 has not been kind to me.

In some happy news, my 6 and 7 year olds are on a baseball team. The 7 year old hits the ball almost every at bat. My 6 year old had never gotten a single hit in the first 6 games, and only hit a foul tip in the most recent one. She is so happy and bubbly even though she wasn't hitting it, though. But she's been practicing, and today she got her first hit! She was so happy, and her team was doing well so hit her all the way home. Then she got her second, and then third hit. She scored on all 3 at bats today, and was literally jumping up and down. So cute. After, she was singing a song about how she can't believe she actually hit the ball. Gotta love kids

Tried stationary bike. Hurt. Tried elliptical. Hurt. Threw in the towel for who-knows-how-long.
