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- not as hot today, a little breeze. 6v6. The other team had better throwers (my team had the 3 weakest) but my team had a bit more speed. Good battle with some long points. We played tight defense but they had good passing, so it seemed we were on defense for long stretches, would get a turnover and almost immediately give it right back, followed by another long defensive stand. We were down 2-1, then up 4-3, then tied 4-4. Both teams had chances to win, but my team finally scored the last point to win. Fun, tiring game.

AM 8 miles on GE trail a bit slower- 8:30-ish pace. 5 deer, 1 turkey, no people. Overcast all night so it was warmer this morning, uppper 70's, and humid. My clothes stink by the end of the day.

Lunch- 11 people at frisbee, my team didn't have the sub. It was a battle today though both teams made some unforced errors- my team had some easy drops, and some bad throws. We were down 4-2 before tying it, but the other team won 5-4. Too much sloppiness today.
