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- walked 2 miles and weights

PM- 13 people on a hot day for frisbee (90 deg). My team had a sub. Good game, tied 3-3, then my team took the lead. I was out the last point but it was a very, very long point. We finally scored for 5-3 win.

5v5 frisbee with a sub on my team. We did better in the warmup so of course lost, 5-2. Then for game to 3, my team was down 0-2 before winning 3-2.

7 people for frisbee so Scott changed team. It was a very good battle which my team won 5-4 after being down 2-3. Then we had 3v3 and my team won 2-0.

Elliptical. All treadmills were used so couldn't do running (stuck at gym with 3 kids). Weights.

AM 1 hr elliptical

PM- Record high 100 deg F with heat index near 110F, so 10 of us were stupid enough to play frisbee. We definitely didn't run quite as much, though. We were tied 2-2 when the next point took forever (10 minutes?). When it was 3-3, we decided to shorten the game due to length and then my team won 4-3.

Only had time for 3 xt, 3 run, weights.

Wife and daughters came home early from church youth camp after they cancelled it 12 hours before it was scheduled to end. Blamed high temps, but it's only 70 deg tonight (admittedly, it was record highs earlier in the week). I think this teaches a bad lesson of quitting when things are uncomfortable, rather than perservering. Again, the temps were low tonight and they were due to come home first thing tomorrow morning anyway.

Another hot day for frisbee- humid and temps in the 90's had a heat index over 100, plus blustery, swirling winds. We had 9 people so Haley was switching sides. My team scored first with Haley, then she went to the other team. We forced turnovers and scored 3 more times while down a player, which is very hard to do. Once it was 4-0, they scored once, before we won 5-1. No one wanted a second game in this heat.

Another hot afternoon for frisbee- 100 deg even plus humid. Blah. 11 people, mine had a sub. No one played great- the high level energy just isn't there in this heat, but it's still fun. My team did bad in warmup so we won the game to 5. We led 4-2, the other team tied it, then we won 5-4. Last game for a month as I'm going to Utah and Idaho.
