After years of not participating in team sports and missing it terribly, I’m finally back in the game. And it’s not even a game I was used to.
Slo-Pitch. Love it! I haven’t played since I was in grade school and picked it back up again in June. I was lazy with going, but I signed myself up with the fall league and haven’t looked back.
Sure, our team isn’t so great (our only win was by default because the other team didn’t show), but we have fun.
My sport in high school was soccer and it was so fast-paced. Not that it was a problem – back then I was in great shape and could run for days. I would play an entire game without being subbed out. Today, not so much. I’ve gotten a little soft in my “old age” and probably couldn’t run a mile without keeling over trying to catch my breath.
Slo-pitch is a perfect balance. Running only when you have to, anticipation of the play – it’s great! And my arms haven’t looked better! Seriously – swinging that bat around has done them wonders! After two games a week, my body is killing me, but I know it’s just because it’s hard at work.
And to add to this whole active thing – I’m thinking I’m going to cancel my gym membership. I just don’t have the drive to go to the gym. Hell, I barely have the drive to go cancel it. $35/mth wasted. *sigh*
Do you play a team sport? Did you? If you could play any team sport, what would it be?
