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 4v4 frisbee. Each member of the other team was taller/bigger than the person covering from my team, so they took a tactic of a bunch of short passes waiting for a bomb to the end zone. Add in a lot of bad passes by my team, and their tactic worked. We lost 5-3.

AM- 5 miles around ICAR. Pretty slow. I went primarily to see if the wild blackberry bushes have fruit yet. Looks like they are at least 2-4 weeks away. I'll keep an eye on it and we'll make a family night out of picking them.

Lunch- 5v5, which is my favorite number (either that or 6v6). My team struggled for a while figuring out what to do on defense but eventually got it ironed out. We won the game 5-1.

AM 6 slow miles on GE trail. 8:30-ish pace. 2 turkeys (one a Tom blocking the trail right at the start), 4 or 5 deer.

Summer is coming. Highs in the mid-90's starting tomorrow

chiro, yoga, then frisbee. Hot- upper 80's. The other team was stacked- 3 of the fastest 4 runners, plus 2 good throwers. They didn't do a great job on capitalizing on their mismatchs, and insisted on playing zone defense even though they were faster and we had a few good throwers to break them. One of the better played games in a while, a real battle. My team went up 2-0, then down 3-2, then we scored 3 straight for the win. Very tired after, between the heat and extra running as I was the main downfield guy for my team but also had to split covering their 2 fastest guys. I'm pretty proud of this win.

AM slow 3 mile run (9 to 8:30 pace, though felt slower). It may not be much, but it's my first Saturday run since February, and my longest of the year. How things have changed from 3 years ago.
