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!

10 people for frisbee, my favorite number. The other team had better throwers, pretty even on speed. Hot but overcast and very breezy. The frisbee gods did not want my team to win today- it was humorous how many of our throws would get caught by the wind or turn the wrong way, while it seemed like every long throw by the other team would turn just perfectly to their catcher, or every tipped disc would go right to them. My team had a large number of bad throws and other self-inflicted wounds today, too, but fate was definitely not on our side. We were down 4-1 before scoring 1 more, then were defeated. 5-2. Blah- every tipped disc I had today still went to Dennis. Oh well. Still fun, but some days are more fun than others.

14 people for frisbee. Still hot- it's usually not this hot still this time of the year. I refused the split the teams so the method they used ended up with fairly uneven teams- my team was weaker on speed and throwing. We gave it a good effort, though I had 3 drops, while I usually have 0. My throwing was better, though I didn't throw any long (that was a pre-game decision). I've been trying to improve my forehand throwing.

Game to 5 started and we had a few bad turnovers and were outplayed, down 4-1. We scored 2 more before getting beat. I think I caught 2 of the 3 points on my team, but also gave up 2. Fun day, not my best play (too many drops- I didn't do my normal pre-game mental warmup, so I'm blaming that).

AM- first run in a while. 1 loop on GE trail. Saw 7 deer, including 2 young bucks, and a rafter of 9 female turkey right at the turnaround point. Then did a little stationary bike.

Well, interesting day for frisbee. We had 17 people. I was on red team, covering Dennis. Then, about 15 minutes in, Dennis ran it to try to intercept a disc to someone else, got upended, and came down on his arm. He broke his arm or wrist (or severely dislocated his wrist). Ouch. Julian took him to the doctor. The red team was killing the other team, so Claire and I swapped teams. Red kept killing blue team- they were up 4-2. My blue team had way too many bad throws and a few drops. We made a comeback and tied it up 4-4, but then lost in the end. Too many bad throws. I think I only had 1 turnover in the game to 5- a throw into the endzone hung up too long and was knocked away. Pretty good game for me, otherwise- no drops, generally good passing. But I don't like 14 people on the field- too crowded. My prefer 10 or 12.
