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.

8 people at frisbee again- it would be real nice to have a few more, especially during the hot summer. My team did better in warmup and won 5-2, then lost 2-1.

PM- had 22 kids at the last summer cross country run. Did 3 miles on some good trails, then played games.

PM 4v4 frisbee. I had a few bad throws- not pretty. We lost 5-3. 

I bought a bike today, not-too-expensive one from REI. It's the first bike I own bought since I was 14. It will be useful to bike along my daughters as they run, and take my son on some bike rides.

we finally had more than 8 people- 13 showed up. My team had the 3 slowest people but played with an extra person. We struggled early but finally clicked just as we started keeping score. We won 5-2. I felt much better than expected, considering I donated blood yesterday, and also played well- no drops or bad throws.

PM- first regular cross country practice of the year. 38 of the kids showed up. They did a time trial- only 5 kids beat their tryout times from the spring. Some did as much as 5+ minutes worse. We have our work cut out for us.

PM- hot today. 11 people at frisbee, my team had a sub. I thought we'd lose 5-2 or 5-3 but we somehow won 5-4. Yes! I caught a few of the scores, including the last. Later in the evening, I rode 2 miles as my daughter ran.

5v6 frisbee, the other team had a sub. My team was up 4-1, then the other team changed to zone defense and we absolutely fell apart with many, many bad throws and drops. We lost 5-4 then 0-3, giving up 7 straight points.

Frisbee day. Hot. 6v6 which was great to not have 4v4. My team was playing poorly during the warmup but the Jon rule kicked in. We switched to zone during the game and kicked butt, going up 4-0 before winning 5-1. Then we won 3-2.
