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!

AM 4- saw a fox right at the start, then 4 deer and 7 or 8 female turkeys. No people

Lunch- frisbee game 7v7. Hot, hottest day in a few weeks. Wore some short, split-leg shorts just for fun. Both teams played poorly, but especially my team- we had a comically large number of bad throws and drops. We got killed in the warmup. In the game to 5, we also were down 3-1 and 4-2. Tom and Dennis kept getting open for passes, at least. I threw away some bad ones. Then I had a long bomb to Tom that he made a great catch on, and we started chugging back. Didn't play a ton better, but the other team started overthrowing it in the endzone. We worked our way back to a 4-4 tie, then we somehow got the winning point. One of the poorer games for me where my team stunk but we won. I guess I'll take it, but I prefer it when we all play better. Oh well, still fun.

AM 6 miles. I had planned on 8 but my left ankle/achilles was painful the whole time so I cut it short. Not sure what to make of my ankle- annoying. I saw 8 or 9 turkey, 5 deer, plus I saw a fox on the trail while I was driving to park.

Lunch- hot again, 12 people for frisbee. As poorly as I played on Monday, I played that well today. Other than a couple of exceptions, my throws were on par, I didn't drop any, and played good defense. I think I threw or caught all but 1 of my team's 5 points. Nice to be throwing well today. The teams were pretty even (the other team said they thought they had a slight advantage, but I don't agree). Game to 5 was tied at 3 before my team scored 2 straight for the win. Then we did a 10 person game to 3, with my team winning 3-1. Felt much better about my play today.

Achilles/heel is bad enough that I've started icing it again. It seemed to respond to the ice.

Lunch- 5v5 on another hot day, plus my team had a sub. My team was struggling with throwing and catching at the start- comically bad. I had a lot of bad throws to open people, dropped one, and even tripped over my feet and fell down. Game to 5 started and we did a better job being patient and making good throws. We were down 2-1 but came back and won 5-3. Controversial finish on a catch near the end which was ultimately ruled good and then my team scored.

Highlight of the day- I was covering Mike Sherman when he went up for a hard hammer catch but tipped it up accidentally. He landed and leaned forward, putting both hands behind his back, and the disc fell right into his hands. It was awesome.
