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 yoga and frisbee. 4v4 with a sub on the other team. My team had the fastest 2 people, but also the newest guy who didn't know what he was doing and no one to throw it long. But in the end, we won 5-3.

Lunch- lots of off and on rain but nothing during lunch so we had a nice 5v5 game. Good battle, my team lost 5-4.

AM- Poor sleep again last night. I think I have less than 11 total hours over the past 3 nights.

I decided to run the GE trail even knowing it might be a bit muddy- wasn't too bad in the end. Saw a coyote right away, and 2 turkey at the far end. A few loops. I think 8:15-8:30 pace or so. Just under an hour, 7 miles. Longest run in over 2 months.

Lunch- 5v5 and my team had a sub. We had 3 fast guys vs 2 for the other team, though 60% of the time only 2 were on the field. We did a lot better during the warmup... so, per tradition, we lost the game to 5. Score 5-4. Good, even battle. It rained hard for about 5 minutes near the start, soaking us all and leading to slippery disc and quite a few drops.
