Yes we were victorious I'm proud to say...Out of the six matches we played my Volleyball team won four and practically tied the last two :)
We whooped the one team we thought was going to be serious competition by almost 13 points...
It was awesome :)

Back in the Game

Tomorrow is the first Volleyball game of the season, well sort of, technically it's just a scrimmage but still I'm very excited for it all the same :)

It's just like old times...I had forgotten how much I really love playing Volleyball until getting back on the court last month for the first time in three years.

I'm playing middle blocker, just like I used to back in the day, it's my favorite position because it's the one with the most flexibility besides the setter.

I'm hoping we kick some serious pa-tooty tomorrow (Ned the Bull!) and all that good stuff :)
We've got a pretty solid team with over 20 players so we better leave a mark...

Next time I write let's hope it's to share the good news of our victory :D

Till then goodnight!

My summer math class is finally over which is a great big relief! I don't think I'll try to juggle two sports and one demanding math class in a semester as short and hectic as this past summer one was, ever again in my life!

I've had more than my full share of mental and physical workouts these past few months trying to crunch loads of new information into my brain and still attend and muster up the energy for two different practices a day...

I am so HAPPY it's over -- I'm freeeeeeeeee again :)

I'm ready to start enjoying my summer now (hahhaa) too bad it's almost over.

Here are a few things I intend on doing before I kiss this wonderfully hot weather goodbye:

1. See the movie 'Inception' -- ok so everyone in my family has seen this movie now except for me :( pouty-pout!

2. Hit the beaches again!!! WOOOOhooooo! I could so use a nice vacay to the beach :)

3. Finish my quilt...yep, yep, I'm the crazy who started making a quilt in the middle of summer :)

4. Do yoga and pilates in the mornings, ya know to help relieve some stress :]

5. Go on another 27 mile bike ride -- ho, ho, ho :)

6. And just relax...

I hope you're all taking the time to Stop with all the work, boring, tedious, insignificant nonsense and really start enjoying your summer! Do something FUN before the time gets away from you -- and believe you me, it will!


p.s. I can't believe my first Volleyball game is just around the corner -- that was fast! Wish me luck ^_^ I'm so ready for it :)

Cross Country Boot Camp

As you may or may not know Matthew and I are running cross country for our school.

We started practicing and working out with the team back in the beginning of June after being recruited by the head coaches and have been kicking butts and taking names ever since :)

Every year the team goes through this cross country bootcamp before the season starts which survivors refer to as: 3 days of hell on earth.

It's basically a boot camp where you work out, exercise, run, and work out some more for hours and hours on end until you scream "UNCLE" at the top of your very weak and weary voice.

Last year the coaches took the cross country team up to Big Bear Lake for their annual bootcamp/torturous three days, and from what I hear it was a lot of work/slightly exhausting but also a lot of fun.

It's team bonding on the ultimate level, you are all there together suffering, working out, whining, complaining and bonding as a team, and once you've completed the camp not only do you have stories to pass on to the freshmen that will come next near you also have a better sense of who all your team mates are.

Plus it's a great work out ;)

This year the boot camp is going to be held up in Nevada, the whole team is pitching in to help pay for the food, the water, the gas, and of course the housing.

I still haven't decided if I'm going to go or not (lol) but either way the trip does sound like it's going to be a lot of fun and if I do end up going I pinky promise to get a ton of awesome pictures for you all...

The area where the team is planning on staying is simply AMAZING! :)
