I LOVE SOCCER!

Soccer season is here again and I couldn't be happier! I haven't really played since before the pregnancy so I had forgotten how very much I enjoy it. I play in a city recreational league every Friday night. I only know a handful of people on the team but I was pleasantly surprised at last night's game that everybody is the perfect blend of what I like to call "skill + chill". I've been on a few teams where the guys are think they are really good and therefore get all carried away and forget that it's not the Olympics! There are lots of bad attitudes and hot heads in this group. On the other hand, I also dont enjoy playing on teams where people really aren't any good at all but they really dont care anyway! Nobody wants to be on a team that loses all season. So I'm really happy that this team is talented and runs hard but also enjoys the game. We have to have 3 girls on the field at all times and there were only 4 of us girls there last night. It was an intense "how d'ya do and welcome back"! Today, it hurts just lifting my leg from the gas pedal to the brake! There's no release like 90 minutes of running hard, getting in people's faces, and winning games! I love it!

I'm glad you love soccer. I got kicked in the face when I was little and I've been kinda scared of soccer balls since. Oh and it's way too much running for me...but I'm glad you love soccer. :)

You are just AMAZING! I can't believe that you are such a superstar...
Good luck with the soreness!
