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!

Hot and humid for frisbee. 5v5 plus my team had a sub. My team also had a very new guy. We were semi-competitive but made some mistakes (I had a few bad throws after having very few the past few weeks) and we lost 5-3.

AM 4 miles on trail. 3 turkeys and a deer. I guess there was a decapitated deer head on the trail yesterday but it was gone today. Then lifting.

My oldest daughter is in 7th grade and had her second cross country meet of the year today. She's generally been 4-8th runner on the team. It was very hot (upper 90's) but I challenged her to start fast to see what she could do. It was a big help due to a bottleneck on the course. She ran hard, pushed through feeling bad, and finished first on her team. It's neat to see her push herself.

AM- Rather than run the trail, I decided to do the bench and run competition at the gym. You bench a % of your bodyweight as many times as you can (I had to bench 70%) then run a 5k. Each bench rep subtracts 30 seconds from your time. I haven't done much benching and no fast running in years so thought it would be interesting. I just wanted to beat a runner who did 4 reps, and Ken (gym manager) who did 9.

I did 11 reps, which I was happy with. I didn't want to overdo the run and injure myself, so started conservative. First mile was 8:06, second was 7:45 (note: I very rarely run faster than 8 min pace these days). I really kept increasing speed on the last mile and was working very hard- at the end, I was running sub-6:30 pace. Last 1.1 was at 7:09 pace, total time 23:43. Long cry from where I used to be, but good to get the legs moving. Who knows, maybe I'll sign up for an actual 5k again sometime soon.

Frisbee on a hot, muggy, sunny day. 7v7, plus my team had a sub. We kept making mistakes, including a few bad throws by me, but were tied 2-2. They scored 2, then we fought back to win 5-4, aided by a couple questionable calls.
