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.
