12 people for frisbee on a hot day (mid-80's) with pretty strong breeze to make throws hard. I had quite a few not great throws. My team lost 4-5 then won 3-2.

Steady rain all day so no frisbee. I signed up for a yoga/stretching class but was the only one due to empty office so ended up just doing elliptical, then donated blood.

Despite PERFECT weather, we had to cancel frisbee due to lack of numbers. We've cancelled 5 of the last 9 times. Went to gym late and did a bit of stuff instead.

Elliptical and run

Soccer season is finishing up. I have kids on 2 rec teams and 1 school team- all teams are undefeated (8-0, 8-0, 9-0). Each has 1 game left before end of season tournaments. Between the 3 teams, they've scored 103 points and only given up 10 points total. I'd say those are pretty good teams. And my cross country team will hold tryouts in May, so I'm already looking forward to that.

Rained most of the day, sometimes hard, but stopped late afternoon. In the 50s and cloudy still. 5v5. My team probably should have lost but we won 5-3 and 3-1.
