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- 13 people at frisbee, other team had a sub. They had an extra fast guy. It was hot today- mid-90's, with Feels like of 100F. I played a bit better than last week but still had 2 bad drops and lots of bad throws- I'm in a bit of a funk right now. Game to 5 saw my team give up 2 points, then battle back on a very long point, then go down 4-2 before tying it up 4-4. We had our chances on the last point but lost 4-5.

Am 6 miles on GE trail. No deer, no turkey, no people, nada. I did see some squirrels and other birds, though. And ran through a few spider webs.

Lunch frisbee. Hot again today, Feels like of 100. 5v5 with a sub on the other team. I'd say the other team had a bit of a speed advantage but both teams played pretty well. I had my first good game in a few weeks- no drops, no bad throws. Game was tied 3-3 before we gave up 2 straight for a loss. Hot.

After 2 weeks, I finally had a game where I feel like I played great- no drops, good short and some great long throws, and a number of defensive blocks. The teams were a bit skewed with my team having a small advantage on speed and throwing (the other team declined a swap) but fairly even 7v7. At the game to 5, my team had some very lucky throws/catches (I'd say 3 of our points were off trash throws). We won 5-1 in a drubbing. 

4v4 for second game which was definitely skewed towards my team, and we won 3-0 ending with me throwing long to Strode for a sliding catch in the endzone with his wife watching. The catch of the game was Alex somehow snagging a poor hammer off the ground for a score- I still don't know how he caught it. Fun day. 5 degrees cooler, which is nice, though a bit muddy (we had 2 inches of rain last night in 30 minutes- it was impressive, and kept Zach and I from going to McDonalds before our movie)
