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!

Sunny but chilly and windy for frisbee. 5v5 but other team had advantage (we had the 13 year old who isn't as good as everyone else). Bad day for games- we lost 5-2, 3-1, then 2-1. Ouch. My leg didn't feel bad, though.

A bit of running and elliptical. Planned to weight lift but felt very low energy so didn't.

PM- ran in 85 deg heat during my daughter's soccer practice- oofdah. Actually had to stop after 12 min as I felt terrible. A bit of a rest, bathroom break, and big drink and I decided to go a few more minutes. Felt better and chugged along for 45 min or so- not a fast pace, but nice to keep going.

4v4. My team was a bit outmatched but the other team could not catch a thing in the warmup- I think my team scored 7 or 8 of the first 9 points. Game to 5, the other team scored first and no team ever broke point, so we lost 4-5. Then my team won second game 3-2. Good times.

9 people at frisbee so Noah alternated teams. We traded points till 3-4 with few turnovers. We forced a turnover but gave it back and lost 5-3. I had some great long throws but some incomplete ones, too. Still fun.

AM 6 run, weights. Rainy outside, so last day of rec soccer games is a washout. My 6th grader has one more game on her school team before the MS tournament.

Made it to the gym after the kids were in bed, thanks to a long day at work. Quick 4 mile run and weights, finishing right as it closed at 10:30.

4v4 frisbee today- hottest day of the year so far (mid-80's and sunny). Felt tired. My team was up 3-1 but lost 5-3.
