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!

AM- elliptical and first run in a week. Back/shoulder felt ok, though still recovering

Went to the middle school soccer championship game. My daughter played every minute. They won 2-1 in a thriller, capping off an amazing season where their only loss was in a pre-season game on PK's, and in which they scored 69 goals while only allowed a single goal all season. That's amazing to me- they were only scored on once all season.

AM- some elliptical and some walking on treadmill with incline set pretty high

PM- We ended up with 10 people on a hot day of frisbee. My team played terrible at the start- bad throws and lots of drops. At one point, we played for 10 min with one fewer player on my team and actually did better. But we reverted to form in the game and lost 2-5. Fortunately, we won the second game 3-1.

We have middle school cross country tryouts starting next week. I'm hearing rumors there will be tons of kids showing up. Historically, we keep 16 boys and 16 girls as we have transportation limitations and we are already far bigger than the teams we race against. Last year, we had 38 runners. I'm open to more but probably not the 50-60 I'm hearing may come. I'm excited for it, though- it's fun to see the energy of these kids.

Did a bunch of walking this morning. Tonight was the family 5k at work. I ran with my 10 year old boy, and was real proud of how hard he worked (he's not in good shape). He ran almost the whole first 2 miles, then a fair amount of the third. Finished in 37 min.

I walked 4 miles or so.

Had 9 people for ultimate, my team had a sub. Very humid. My team won 5-3.

53 kids turned in forms to tryout for cross country on Monday. We had 41 tryout last year, the most ever, and had 38 on the team. I'll have to see how they all run- I'd like to not cut any (at least, any that actually make an attempt to run), but we aren't really equipped to have that big of a team. Historically, we limited it to 30-32 runners.

AM- elliptical

PM- Day 1 of cross country tryouts. Most years, the team has about 30 members. Today we had 53 kids show up, plus 11 others who said they would come but missed today. That's a lot, and we aren't equipped for it (don't even have enough uniforms). Crazy, fun practice. Tomorrow is another practice, then next Monday is a time trial to see who will be on team. I'm trying to convince the RD to significanly increase from last year's record 38 runners.

AM- 30 min elliptical, 4 miles running, weights

PM- cross country tryouts. Ran around a bunch. We had 49 kids there today. I believe we will have as many as 58 tryout. I'm pushing the AD to let us keep as many as possible.

AM- walked at gym

PM- we actually had 14 people for frisbee. Hot and windy. My team won 5-2. For the second game, my normally good throw was terrible and I turned it over 3 or 4 times. We lost 2-3.

Tough day at frisbee. 6v6 on a very hot and very windy day. My team got ahead 4-2, then they tied it 4-4, then we won 5-4. Very difficult with the heat and wind. It was Dennis's last day as he's moving to Charlotte. Will miss him.

Was supposed to have the cross country time trial today but delayed one day due to thunderstorms and tornado warning

AM- elliptical and weights

PM- the big cross country tryout. We had 25 girls run, plus 2 more who didn't run due to injury. We had 27 boys run, plus 2 who will run tomorrow. I'm working with the AD on how many we can keep- I'd like to keep at least 23 boys and 23 girls, but would prefer to keep all. Prior to last year, the team was restricted to 32 runners. Last year we had 38.

PM elliptical and run. Then went to see Top Gun in IMAX with a group of guys. Theatre was packed, movie was great. I was the only one of the group old enough to have seen the original in the theatre, too (I saw it for a friend's 8th birthday party).
