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- yoga and frisbee. After a rainy, cloudy, cool week, it unexpectedly cleared up with sunny, mid-80's, and very humid. 5v5, which is my favorite number. Warm up was pretty even, but then my team won 5-0 for the game. That almost never happens- the other team had some unopportune turnovers, and kept getting mixed up on defense, often leaving me or others alone for long passes. We capitalized. Shut outs are rare, and (frankly) not too enjoyable. But more enjoyable to be on the winning side than the losing.

AM- I probably overdid it today. Wanted to run 7-8 miles. Couldn't keep track of time so did 8.5. All on GE trail. Saw 1 turkey, 9 deer (4 bucks with tiny antlers and 1 tiny fawn). But like I said, I overdid it and now my left ankle has hurt all day.

Lunch, warm, humid frisbee. 9 people, so we did 4v4 with sub on the other team. We probably had the better team but the game was fairly even during the warm up, though I think the other team got worn down a bit more. Once the game started, my team whupped up and won 5-0. We usually only have 2-4 shutouts a year, but now we had 2 in one week.

AM- 6 slow-ish miles on GE trail. 3 deer, 1 turkey, and 1 large turtle in the middle of the trail. Fairly certain it was a snapping turtle.

lunch. It's the start of a holiday weekend and rain was expected, but we still had small game of 3v3. Alex, Jeff, Joe Trz against Haley, me, and a newly married Julian. The rain mostly held off. My team won 5-2.
