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!

Ultimate frisbee 6v6. The other team was definitely more stacked, even offered to trade us some players but we refused. We did ok during the warmup, but I was playing H-O-Double R-I-B-L-E, in particular my throwing. It was bad. Game started and we were quickly down 4-0 before scoring 2 points to make it look a bit more even before they put us out of our misery. It was ugly, and I was the ugliest today.

AM- 4 very, very slow miles on GE trail (9:30 or slower). Achilles hurt, and just tired and slow. I did see a box tortise and 5 or 6 turkeys, half of them babies. I think that's the first baby turkeys I've seen in the wild.

Lunch- rainy day, only 6 people at frisbee so we played hot box. My team lost 5-1 first, then won 5-0. Final game was 5-4 win for us.

AM- about 6 miles on slightly-muddy GE trails at 8:30-ish pace. Felt much, much better than on Tuesday. Saw 4 deer and 1 turkey, no people. I enjoy seeing the wildlife right in the middle of town- it's a nice respite and a testament to nature.

Lunch- not a week to remember for my frisbee play. 17 people, my team had 1 sub, other team had 2. Lots of good players. I played better than Monday but still poorly- I dropped a beautiful long bomb, another touchdown, and had a number of bad throws (not as many as Monday, but still too many). Plus the guy I was defending caught the winning score. My team lost 5-4. Like I said, not a week to remember.

I often spend a few minutes before a game mentally picturing myself playing well. I haven't done that for a while, and I think it helps when I do. I used to do that before big ultra races and it prepared me for the adventure ahead.
