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!

Decided to play frisbee even though it may hurt my hips. 65, overcast, but humid. 6v6. My team was getting worked at the start- we alternated bad throws with drops. I think we only scored 1 of the first 7 or 8 points. It was terrible. We finally started getting things together after 20 or 30 minutes. Game to 5 started- we went up 2-1, then down 3-2, then 3-3, then down 4-3, then tied at 4. Both teams had several chances to win at the end, but we lost 4-5. I played mixed- some good throws, but some bad throws (I threw a bad one into the endzone on the last point). Some good D, some bad (knocked an awesome bomb away from Dennis, but gave up a few and ran out of juice- donating blood didn't help that). Some good catches, some bad (one great long score with Dennis all over me, but another that he knocked away). Fun, even game. I wish I was in the shape I was 3 years ago, not 30 pounds heavier and always fighting 1-2 niggles at a time. Such is age and too much food.

AM 2 miles on GE trail and didn't see any deer or turkey- that's uncommon. 1 mile on track. Stretch.

AM 4 on the treadmill (so I could stop quickly in case my hips started hurting, which they didn't). Then pretty good weightlifting.

Lunch- 13 people for frisbee, my team had sub. Right at the start, Kevin dislocated his pinkie finger. He popped it back in, buddy taped it, and kept playing. We had more speed and really dominated the game to 5, winning 5-1. They had some bad turnovers just before scoring. I had a couple of terrible drops but otherwise did fine. 10 people stuck around for another game- other team scored 2, then my team scored 2, then they won 3-2.

Busy weekend- church trunk or treat tonight, then I'm working an aid station early tomorrow morning with my eldest daughter for the local marathon, then attending Matilda the musical with 4 kids, then watching a soccer game. Sunday, we head to Atlanta after church to meet Marci's sister and her family, who is coming for a week to see us and enjoy a Southern Halloween. I hope it doesn't rain.
