No run, but was part of a group of 27 people who climbed Table Rock. I was proud my kids made it the whole way. I carried someone else's kid in a kid carrier for 4 of the 7+ miles- my legs and shoulders will be feeling it tomorrow.

Somewhere around 3 miles at the cross country meet (boys and girls won, boys scored 19, girls scored perfect 15), then running the course for next week. Then I spent a while cutting thorny vines and barbed wire to clear the course.

15 people at frisbee- full house. My team led the whole game 1-2 points till the other team scored 2 straight to win 5-4. Ouch. Then we lost again 2-3. Bummer.

Busy all afternoon with the meet. It went well. Kids hated me for putting a huge hill in the last quarter mile. I love it.

PM- annual indian run day at cross country. Sprinkling, 70's. I wasn't sure my Achilles would let me do it but I ran the whole thing- about 5 miles during the whole practice, by far the most of the year.

Nice weather but bad day at frisbee- I got very frustrated and left right when the game was over. My team had quite a few drops, which is fine. But we also repeatedly had stupid throws (read: difficult, low probability, unnecessary). But what really gets my ire is when there's a lack of effort. Time and again, we would turn it over and most of the team would not make any effort on defense, standing and watching while 2 of us tried to cover 3 to 5 of the other team for an extended period. Not trying gets to me. I lost my temper. I might need to take a break for a while.

PM- a bit of running at the last cross country practice of our short season. I hope the championship race goes well tomorrow- knock on wood, both teams will continue their unbeaten season with two conference championships.
