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!

AM- 7. Kind of slow, but not death march slow. All on GE trail, but no wildlife sightings of any sore. No people, either. 

Lunch- a few degrees cooler than last week and overcast today, with almost no wind, so good summertime playing conditions. 10-13 people (a few injuries and early leavers). My team won 5-3. Really good game today all around, similar to Friday. No slackers on the field. However, the maxim held true- the team that was being outplayed at the start, wins the game to 5. My team was definitely outplayed the first 20 minutes with lots of unforced errors.

AM- morning run, mostly on GE trail. 2 turkeys, 3 runners (looked like HS runners). Felt pretty sluggish at the start with 8:00 pace and thought of calling it quits. Started feeling better at 30 min, then felt real good at 45 min and picked up the pace quite a bit. Was running about 7:10 pace the last 3 miles or so. Then decided to actually do a little speed workout. Did 1 track loop (.68 miles) at 6:15 pace. Felt nice to run fast.

I signed up for the Moonshiner 5k, a night 5k trail race. I have won it 2 or 3 times, and it was my last competitive race 3 years ago. It will be my first race in over 2 years. I'm excited and actually feeling somewhat motivated to run well, on top of my 3x/week frisbee.

Ankle was hurting a bit, likely due to the shoes (400+ miles, 3.5 years old). Left them in the trash in the gym.
